The Mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, has just confirmed that all of the cities ICU units are at 100% capacity, according to CBS's Shon Gables and Senior Executive Producer Phil Landeros. Any more patients that need critical care in the ICU specifically won't be able to get it.
Less than 24 hours ago, the mayor signed a 14-day Stay at Home Order for all its residents.
"Flattening the curve" hasn't worked yet. The daily death-rate in the U.S. increased on Monday to 140, from 111 the day prior.
As we've been hearing for days now from health experts from around the world, one of the biggest disasters of the fast spread of the coronavirus is not having enough medical resources for everyone at the same time. That means - if you can't breath and you need a ventilator at a hospital - you can't get one. If that's the case, you'll have more deaths than you would have had with a slow virus growth.
