COVID hospitalizations: Pennsylvania healthcare system at 'brink of collapse,' doctor says



There is an alarming uptick in coronavirus hospitalizations.

Right now, there are 65,000 patients receiving care across the nation. That’s up by 20,000 compared to a month ago. And thousands of those patients are in the tri-state area.

“The healthcare system in Pennsylvania is at the brink of collapse,” said Dr. Gerald Maloney, Chief Medical Officer Geisinger Health System.

Many hospitals in Pennsylvania are inching closer to crisis mode as they fill up once again with Covid patients.

Geisinger Health System, one of the state’s largest health systems, says it’s running out of beds across its nine hospitals in central and northeastern Pennsylvania.

  1. I know there’s a lot of non vaxxers and conspiracy theorist out there, and that’s fine. I don’t trust the government either. But the healthcare system is overheating. Supply shortages, running out of blood, staff quitting because they’re overworked, no beds available. No beds means if you show up after a car crash and you need help, they won’t be able to help you because beds are taken. Some hospitals are looking at 8-20 hour wait times. You can be against vaccines, I believe everyone has the right to choose.. but this healthcare system thing is real. And it’s not getting any better. The collapse of the healthcare system will send shockwaves through the economy. Imagine the US is a house of cards.. now imagine removing one of the cards at the base of the structure.. it all comes tumbling down. Every piece of the system our country operates upon is taking a hit. Our nation is crippled and no one seems to understand what’s happening. Please do some research and stay informed. Everyone’s life is about to change. It’s okay to question things and take precaution when moving forward.. but please dont take this stuff lightly. There’s A LOT you people don’t know. Dark times ahead.

  2. Pennsylvania healthcare system at the brink of collapse, yet these same hospitals can afford to fire unvaccinated doctors and nurses. See the fake story narrative?

  10. Stop lying The MSM is a joke they just want more money did it once so now they're going to try it again please drop it okay

  11. Nonvaccinated patients should be sent home! They should come last not first when it comes to hospital treatment for being stupid and not getting vaccinated!

  12. But wait, 60% of pa residents got the vaccine right? Out of those 60% they are 98% less likely to get covid. So why are so many people in the hospital with covid?
