Reports are floating around the state that most, if not all, ICU beds at hospitals in Alabama are full.
According to Jason Daniel, director of public affairs and marketing for the Escambia County Healthcare Authority – which operates Atmore Community Hospital and D.W. McMillan Memorial Hospital – for this county that report is mostly true.
“As of right now (Wednesday), D.W. McMillan Memorial Hospital ICU is full,” Daniel said. “Atmore Community Hospital ICU has four open as of right now.”
Daniel also reported on statistics from across the state concerning admissions at hospitals in regard to COVID-19 patients.
