"Nebraska Medicine" Deals With Rising Covid Numbers

Administrators say "Nebraska Medicine's" coronavirus intensive care unit is full of patients for the first time in months.

“This Delta variant is really attacking those that are unvaccinated and is seeking people out and making people really sick,” Dr. Angela Hewlett, Infectious Diseases Specialist and Associate Professor, tells 6 News.

“Our largest COVID I-C-U has 25 beds, and we received notice on Friday that those 25 beds were filled with COVID patients.”

Hewlett says they're having to transfer non-coronavirus patients to other units within the hospital.

“We were having to find other places for them to go, so we could open up additional COVID units.”
