Pressure mounts on Japan’s second largest city, Osaka, as COVID-19 infection numbers rise. According to Reuters, hospitals are “running out of beds and ventilators as exhausted doctors warn of a ‘system collapse’, and advise against holding the Olympics this summer.”
This quote stood out for me:
“The highly infectious British variant and slipping alertness have led to this explosive growth in the number of patients.”
Like I said in my last post about what you can do after you’ve had the COVID-19 vaccine, the pandemic isn’t over just because you’re over it.
