Spike in California virus cases hitting hospitals, schools

Date:

Los Angeles (AP) — California is having a hard time staffing hospitals and classrooms as a surge in coronavirus infections hit the state.

The rapidly prevailing variant of Omicron sets aside exposed or infected health care workers, despite a surge in the number of hospitalized people.

The state health minister warned Wednesday that “some facilities will be detained.”

According to the California Hospital Association, about 40% of hospitals are expected to face a serious staff shortage.

Meanwhile, the Northern California school district states that hundreds of staff and students have been quarantined after a positive virus test.

The number of virus cases in California has skyrocketed by nearly 500% in the last two weeks, and hospitalizations have doubled since Christmas.
