More than twenty people died from pneumonia and pneumonia-related infections at two midland Memorial hospitals on Monday.
According to Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), the Midland Memorial was one of two hospitals in the state that reported a high volume of pneumonia cases.
“The hospitals received an average of more than 20 pneumonia cases per day between January and August of 2016,” DSHS spokesman Sean Purdy told Mashable.
“That was more than double the number of patients treated for pneumonia per day in 2016.”
In midland, we have about 2,600 patients and we’re seeing a much higher number of pneumonia admissions than we saw last year.
“Midland Memorial, which closed in 2016, was one to three times the capacity of the midland hospital where a similar type of infection was found.
The Midland hospital received a total of 11 cases of pneumonia in 2016 but that number has dropped significantly.
The Midland Health System, the health care provider responsible for Midland, said it is still reporting an increase in pneumonia cases but not to the same level as the other hospitals.
The two hospitals have been the focus of an outbreak of pneumonia and a related coronavirus coronaviruses outbreak in Texas.”
He added that some patients who were hospitalized with pneumonia might have been infected with a different strain of coronaviral.””
We had a number of people who had respiratory problems.”
He added that some patients who were hospitalized with pneumonia might have been infected with a different strain of coronaviral.
“It is not known yet what the virus that was found in these patients may be, and we do not have any data on how many of those people had the same coronaviremia that is circulating in the United States,” he said.KPRC reported that Midland’s infection rate is significantly lower than that of the Texas health care system and hospitals in Louisiana, Mississippi, Mississippi and Oklahoma.
However, the Midlands Memorial has a reputation for its isolation and its close proximity to other hospitals, so infections can spread rapidly in that setting, Dr. Wittenburg said.
“There is also a high risk of the coronavirinuses being transferred from the hospital to the surrounding environment, so we are seeing that,” he added.
Midland Health Systems spokesperson Ashley Johnson told the news station that it’s unclear how many patients were infected, but she said they believe it was between 5 and 7 percent.
“Our understanding is that the coronivirus is circulating throughout the community in the midlands, but it is very difficult to predict exactly what this virus is doing to the community,” Johnson said.
