KSAT 12: Some San Antonio hospitals using pediatric ICU for adults due to hospitals reaching capacity
Dr. Ruth Berggren, infectious diseases specialist and director of the Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics, discussed how some local hospitals are making more room for patients.
She added that the current spike in COVID-19 cases is from social gatherings. She stressed the importance of social distancing and masking during the upcoming holiday weekend to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and slow the surge in hospitalizations.
She mentioned that Phase 3 of the remdesivir trial should be beginning in about three weeks and that patients with COVID-19 can be enrolled in the trial through UHS.
