Local ER Remains Busy — From Dr. Mike Silverman of Virginia Hospital Center: “ER volumes remain really high. We closed out last week with another record week when it comes to volume. That was back to back weeks of the highest volumes we’ve seen in a 7 day period. These are not records we want to set. With that said, we’re doing a ton of COVID testing since so many patients are presenting with fever, cough, shortness of breath, and other flu-like (or COVID-like) symptoms. Fortunately, our COVID numbers have not increased and our percent positive rate has also been steady.” [Facebook]
