Arizona Health Care System Can’t Take Much More, Current Surge Has Yet to Peak: Doctor

The Arizona Medical Association (ArMA) released a statement Friday pleading with residents to take more measures to help curb the spread of COVID-19, saying the health care system has been overwhelmed with a spike in cases.

According to data from the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), the state experienced a record-breaking 19,346 cases on January 5. As of January 13, the department reported 95 percent of hospital inpatient beds were in use, with a third of the beds specifically going to COVID-19 patients.

In the statement, Dr. Miriam Anand, president of the ArMA, said experts are predicting this surge has not peaked yet.
