WSJ – Hospitals Struggle to Block Internal Spread of Covid-19
July 7, 2020
Today’s Wall Street Journal featured an alarming front page article on how hospitals are struggling to block the internal spread of Covid-19. Journalists, Russell Gold and Melanie Evans, write “although a small fraction of all cases, coronavirus infections spread inside hospitals pose an obstacle to the institutions’ ability to fully reopen and persuade people they’re safe – a step eventually needed for both public health and for hospital finances”.
The article documents workers at the University of Illinois Hospital in Chicago who have tested positive for the coronavirus, with severe implications. While efforts have been underway to utilize negative-pressure rooms that “aerosolize the virus”, however, there seems to be a shortage of such rooms. Notably, the WSJ notes that “hospitals are creating Covid-designated clinics to isolate infected patients” and “screening anyone entering buildings”, as well as stepping up cleaning efforts.
