“She needed to be intubated immediately because she was having seizures,” said Patricia Darnauer, the administrator for LBJ Hospital. “We looked at all five major pediatric hospital groups and none [had beds] available.”

Daily Beast: A pediatric hospital bed shortage in Houston forced an infant having seizures to be airlifted more than 150 miles for emergency treatment. The 11-month-old was taken via helicopter from Houston to Temple, Texas due to a situation hospital staff said was brought about by the Delta variant of the coronavirus.

Patricia Darnauer, administrator for LBJ Hospital, told ABC 13, “She needed to be intubated immediately because she was having seizures. We looked at all five major pediatric hospital groups and none [had beds] available… We are back beyond our pre-pandemic volumes at LBJ.” The toddler received treatment at Baylor Scott & White McLane Children’s Medical Center.

Dr. Christina Propst, a Houston pediatrician, said of Houston’s sick children, “If children are not masking in schools, it will be a major problem… It is typical that two weeks after school we see a great surge of strep and other sources of infection. We are bracing ourselves, not a question of when, it will be bad.”

  1. Having worked at oil refineries in that part of the nation, I can vouch that the lack of hospital beds was most likely not due to Covid-19, but due to oilfield workers overdosing on Spice, Meth, or now Fentanyl, and needing to be taken to the emergency room.

    …I still remember finding my team member on projects for a while drooling at the mouth and going into a seizure before being carted off to an emergency room. Just to think… he had been the Director of Safety before that. Such a shame. However, I’m pretty sure they made him Director of Safety again.

    • Houston has no oil field workers. It is a town of 5million. Beaumont has oil workers…and do communities east of Houston. No oil workers in Houston whatsoever. One of us has long experience with both Houston as a resident and as an oil company exec.

      Stop making things up….sounds like more Russian funded propaganda…getting more and more lame as time goes on. How much are you getting per post we don’t take down? Can we get a kickback?

  2. Pause and reflect…. During a Pandemic, we are sending children into schools without masks or any protection. Forget the fact they shouldn’t be there in the first place.

    Skool is a capture and program, the human mind, military psyop. Profitable also.
    It is not healthy for an individual. Why can they not produce their own food ?
