JPR: Delta virus moving through Southern Oregon like a buzzsaw
Hospitals in Southern Oregon are overwhelmed. The COVID-19 Delta variant has created a surge unlike anything the region has seen during the pandemic.
Michael Blumhardt is the ICU medical director at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford. He says all of Asante’s three hospital ICUs in Grants Pass, Medford and Ashland are 100% full of COVID patients.
“We’ve had two deaths today,” he says of the Medford campus. “So, it’s a very grim, difficult time.”
