Courtney ann jackson checks on the current status of hospital capacity.

Here's the chart that shows from early march until last tuesday.

The red line represents patients with confirmed covid-19.

You see the spike in late july and early august.

And back to the right...the upward trend in not only hospitalized covid- 19 patients but also those in the icu and on ventilators.

The state health officer making this comment last week.

"be safe because if you get seriously ill, our resources are tapped out."

The state's only trauma center once again feeling that pressure mounting.

"our hospital beds are full.

Our icus are full.

So, if in fact we see more of the covid patients that are coming in and sick covid patients, then what we get into is can we take transfers?

Can we schedule surgeries for our own patients."

"i really think it's going to get bad for quite a while before it gets better with all these numbers we're seeing and how widespread it is around the country and around the world."

The university of mississippi medical center says it's better prepared for another wave.

"we're using those lessons that we learned to make sure that we can kind of ramp up and ramp down when needed as necessary as covid volumes change around us."

Some of the hospitalization numbers could be held to a lower number because they are expecting some antibody treatments to soon be available."

"it's for outpatients only and it's one infusion and we hope that the benefit is to keep them out of the hospital, to keep them from decompensating more so that they require hospitalization."

That antibody treatment will be for those most at risk of covid complications---so those who have underlying conditions or are immunosuppressed.

25 to 39-year-olds continue to lead the covid-19 case count in mississippi.

Today, that number topped 30 thousand.
