Huffington Post: Oklahoma is running out of desperately needed pediatric hospital beds throughout the state amid rising COVID-19 cases, a surge in a separate serious respiratory illness and nursing shortages.

Some children have been sent out of state to other hospitals because of a lack of beds in Oklahoma.

“There have been a few pediatric patients who have needed ICU beds that there were no beds here. Any other couple of ICUs … in the state that could take care of that sick of patients were also full, and we have had to send them out of state,” Dr. Cameron Mantor, chief medical officer at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital, told local Fox News 25.

The Owasso Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine clinic issued a statement Wednesday warning that there were no pediatric ICU beds available anywhere in the state — among the hardest-hit in the current coronavirus wave — and that some patients were being sent to Texas. A few state beds became available later in the day, the clinic noted.

The center emphasized that the problem wasn’t only the coronavirus and its dangerous new delta variant.

The state is also experiencing a rise in respiratory syncytial virus infection (RSV) among children. But the clinic strongly encouraged COVID-19 vaccinations for everyone over the age of 12 to ease the hospital crush.

“The point is you can take a vaccine to prevent possible COVID hospitalization but not for many other things,” said the statement on the clinic’s Facebook page. “We are just asking everyone to do what they can to help a strained hospital situation … Please take the delta strain seriously.”  read more..

  1. The Nuremberg Codes defining medical war crimes

    Did you know that it is a war crime, established in 1947, to force anyone to have a vaccination, or to experiment with them without their informed consent, or to continue a vaccine when there is a good possibility of injury or death?

    Here are the 10 criteria that were established, according to the British Medical Journal (1996).

    It makes me wonder how many politicians, scientists, and journalists will be executed in the years to come.
