>>Pennsylvania Hospitals Feeling Strained By COVID Pandemic

(Lewisburg, PA) -- Hospital and Intensive Care Unit beds are filling up across the state, and some hospitals are scrambling to find extra space amid the pandemic. Evangelical Community Hospital officials say they have 25 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, six of them are in ICU and they have several waiting for ICU bed space. The hospital plans on adding two more beds to its COVID ICU unit along with seven non-COVID ICU beds as cases of the virus continue to rise, with no end in sight. Officials urge people to follow COVID guidelines and say it's demoralizing to their staff when they're dealing with people who are sick and dying meanwhile there are others refusing to take the pandemic seriously.
