Hospital Capacity Still A Concern as COVID-19 Patients Fill Beds

(Bismarck, ND) -- Hospital capacity in North Dakota is still a concern as more COVID-19 patients fill beds.  

Just over 150 people in the state were hospitalized as of yesterday for COVID-19-related illnesses, a jump of almost 30 people from the day before. Only ten-percent of staffed beds in the state are available, with only eleven ICU beds available statewide.

Two Bismarck hospitals have no regular or ICU beds available.
