“Hey, Utah, we are in the wrong direction.” On Sunday, Intermountain Healthcare official Jess Gomez tweeted.
Dr. Todd Vento, an infectious disease physician at Intermountain Healthcare, said: “We are very worried.”
He said: “To be sure, you should expect more ICU usage, more ventilators and more critically ill patients.”
On Sunday, the Utah Department of Health reported 2,276 new COVID-19 cases and 2 new deaths. The rolling average of positive cases for 7 consecutive days in Utah is now 31.5%.
Dr. Vento said that the reality of COVID-19 and the damage it has caused to the United States is real, it is just a fact.
He said: “If it weren’t for a virus that we can’t even see, 400,000 people would not have died.”
Dr. Winto said that as a community, since the beginning of the pandemic, Utahans need to take precautions that have been repeated time and time again.
He said: “There is a reason that sounds like the same thing. We mean it is true. We have used it for 11 months and it is now true. We really need everyone’s help.”
Dr. Vento said that wearing a mask is the best way to prevent COVID-19.
He said: “For us, it should be unnatural for us to have a respiratory virus public health emergency around the world for a year, and it should look unusual not to wear a mask.
A new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that about 60% of COVID-19 cases are transmitted among asymptomatic people. Dr. Vento said this means that everyone should assume that they are at a high risk of COVID-19 and avoid gatherings, wear masks and maintain proper hygiene.
