Went from calm to chaos with this new delta strain!
I work 7 on 7 off at night in a hospital and we went from having only a few inpatients with covid when I got off a week ago to no more rooms available and having to use the ER to house ICU patients. Buckle up because I don’t see it getting better any time soon.

Let me add that our hospital isn’t very big. But it also has been very quiet of covid up until just recently. It literally just exploded with new cases.

Average age? What percent on ventilators? Death rate?

Zero impact here. If I didn’t see all the fear mongering going on, I wouldn’t know about Delta.

I don’t believe anyone that uses unnecessary exclamation points in an attempt to create urgency.

Age I’d say between 40 and 70. Most on vents. There’s a man that’s been fighting for his life in ICU with a pic of him and his 5 year old. We don’t think he’ll make it. It’s so sad to see.

Water moccasins are nothing to play with.

I’m not trying to induce fear. I’ve never really been worried about this virus but this strain is more aggressive. It’s gonna be bad for a awhile

Not all the detail you're looking for, and only one hospital, but BR General posted this a day or two ago:

Covid talk here is OOC but on the topic, I had to admit my elderly mother with severe RA yesterday due to some extra pain mgt. So, here in NETx, the ambulance service had to reroute her to a small hospital in a pretty rural burg as both Longview and Tyler hospital's ER's and patient beds were at capacity. Pretty shocked by that I must say. The staff where I'm at now doesn't know what to think.

ETA: if anyone doubts this, Google the numbers of Christus Good Shepard and Longview Regional. UT Health and Christus Mother Frances in Tyler. Ask away.

Just to let people know to be more careful about hanging out with relatives that you love that may have underlying conditions and make sure you’re not sick around them. This new strain is easier to pass along. Our hospital completely filled up in a week.

TigrrDad is the moccasin whisperer. Hopefully he'll add some pics shortly.

What type of testing is being used to know what strain it is?
