Los Angeles has become a hotbed for COVID-19, with L.A. County reportedly expecting the worst conditions of the pandemic so far, according to L.A. Public Health Officials.
Via Twitter, the L.A. Public Health account tweeted, “This is likely to be the worst month of the pandemic in LA County. The surge from holiday gatherings is here, and cases will increase due to parties and travelers returning to LA County. We must use the tools we have to prevent more suffering & death and protect frontline workers.”
L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said, “We're likely to experience the worst conditions in January that we've faced the entire pandemic, and that's hard to imagine.” A memo that was sent out to ambulance workers last week noted that “adult patients (18 years of age or older) in blunt traumatic and non-traumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) shall not be transported [if]return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) is not achieved in the field.” Stay tuned for more details.
