Even according to the article, the hospitals are handling the amount of patients they have just fine. If numbers increase, then they will use staff from elective surgery positions. I'm not hearing anything that says this is a crisis.

Not bullshit at all. I personally know a Truman nurse testing Covid positive this week. It’s a damned disaster and it’s getting worse.

Prayers to all the hardworking healthcare workers in the region. It isn't rocket science, wear masks, social distance for the next couple months and try to get this under control.
