The U.S. government is mobilizing medical personnel to help in preventing the possibility that some hospitals might be overrun with coronavirus infections via unvaccinated individuals.
On Monday, the U.S president said on a call with the National Governors Association, that Washington would call on medical personnel to help prevent the congestion in hospitals with coronavirus infections by unvaccinated individuals.
"With rising cases, we still have tens of millions of unvaccinated people, and we're seeing hospitalizations rise. It means our hospitals in some places are going to get overrun, both in terms of equipment and staff. That's why we stockpiled and pre-positioned millions of gowns, gloves, masks and ventilators," stated Biden on Monday.
"We're mobilizing an additional 1,000 military doctors and nurses and medics to help staff hospitals. FEMA is deploying hundreds of ambulances and EMS crews to transport patients", added Biden.
Biden exposed that, thanks to the increase in numbers of vaccinated people, the U.S. has not faced the rise in hospitalizations as in previous waves of contagion.
