Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has said that retired health practitioners are being pulled in to assist in containing the spread coronavirus in the state.
“Staffing at hospitals is a major issue. We’re trying to pull people in who have been retired; maybe other doctors, like dermatologists, can play a different role in helping during this crisis,” said Governor Mike DeWine.
“There is a real sense of urgency to what I’m doing and what my team is doing every day. It is going to take doubling or tripling our hospital capacity. We have a lot of work to do and we need you to stay far apart.“
According to him, “If you don’t believe that we could see 10,000 new cases a day — We’ve tried to describe what the science tells us. Hospitals looking at the modeling and say that this is coming. It’s here.“
“The evidence indicates that cases will double every six days. This is a train that is moving. It starts slowly, but it will start moving faster and faster and faster.”
Meanwhile, Governor DeWine has signed an election amendment bill into law which makes the absentee ballot primaries to end on April 28, 2020.
“In-person voting will be available only for those who are disabled or cannot receive mail,” he said
With the Governor’s signature today, we are counting down to April 28th.
