ALERT: ‘Florida is already Wuhan, China’: Doctors sound alarm as Miami-Dade ICUs reach 118 percent of capacity
Miami-Dade County has been dubbed the new epicenter of COVID-19 in the U.S. as cases surge throughout Florida, and a doctor at one of the state’s largest hospitals is sounding an alarm, comparing the current spike in cases in the county to the first known outbreak in Wuhan, China.

The number of Florida resident deaths has reached 4,805, an increase of 128 since Thursday’s update. Another 107 non-Floridians have died in the state, according to the Florida Department of Health.

As of Friday, ICU bed capacity was at 118% of normal capacity.

Florida has been averaging more than 100 new COVID-19 deaths per day over the last seven days, more than double the figure of two weeks ago. Doctors have predicted a surge in deaths as Florida’s daily reported cases have gone from about 2,000 a day a month ago to over 12,000.

“This spike in cases is like nothing we’ve seen before — not even in New York. Florida has been breaking New York numbers and breaking national records,” Rishi Rattan, a trauma surgeon at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami-Dade County, said.

Rattan said it is absolutely worrying to him, and the capacity at the hospital is in flux.

“The patients are coming almost as fast, if not faster than than we can build new spaces and new beds and new areas. So we are expanding the hospital, but every time we build an area, it quickly overflows,” Rattan said.

And as more beds fill to capacity, wait times to get a hospital bed are going to continue to increase.

It's all Bullshit. There is no "over capacity" nearly all tests are being made to report positive. Death rates are extremely low. No worse than seasonal flu.

“The patients are coming almost as fast, if not faster than than we can build new spaces and new beds and new areas. So we are expanding the hospital, but every time we build an area, it quickly overflows,” Rattan said.

“We have entire wings of the hospital, entire building of the hospital, every single floor being COVID-19 patients,” said Rattan.

“At every level we’re really kind of bursting at the seams."

“The positive cases here in Florida are rising faster than we’ve ever seen it throughout this entire pandemic. We’re getting tens of thousands of new infections daily and we know from all the reporting that this is not just due to more testing. We’ve done the statistics, we’ve looked at the facts. The actual infection is rising. The pandemic is spreading and it’s increasing faster than ever before,” Rattan said.

Rattan revealed that the uptick in cases has also increased the risk for its health care workers.

“Not only are we at max capacity of our health care workers and asking for more, we’re getting sick. My colleagues are getting sick with COVID and in the care of patients.

None of this is true.

They've been hit with tens of thousands of fraudulent cases. They just counted a guy that died from a motorcycle accident as a covid death.

”Rattan said his team is noticing that survivors are dealing with long-term effects and a difficult time recovering from the virus. “Even if people survive and they were healthy before, they’re not surviving this in a healthy way and that’s very concerning,” Rattan said.

Rattan said one-in-four to one-in-five patients are experiencing long-term, serious side effects — including difficulty breathing and organ failure.

Dr. Lilian Abbo, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Miami, compared the situation in Miami to that of Wuhan, China, earlier in the pandemic, according to Newsweek.

"Miami is now the epicenter of the pandemic. What we were seeing in Wuhan six months ago, five months ago, now we are there," Abbo said.

Rattan agreed. “I would say that Florida is already Wuhan, China,” he said. “We are already seeing numbers in capacity and density and stressing of the hospitals that we saw in Wuhan, that we’re seeing in Italy. Our numbers per day have broken records in New York.”

Miami becoming 'epicenter' of pandemic, comparable to Wuhan, China

Florida's rapidly increasing number of coronavirus cases is turning Miami into the “epicenter of the pandemic,” a top doctor warned Monday, while an epidemiologist called the region's situation “extremely grave.”

Those assessments came as Florida recorded more than 12,000 new confirmed coronavirus cases Monday after a record-setting weekend, a spike that partly reflects the larger number of tests being performed but also a high percentage of those returning positive. The state set a national record with more than 15,000 cases reported Sunday.

Gov. Ron DeSantis acknowledged Monday that the disease is spreading and urged people to take precautions such as wearing masks in public places, social distancing and avoiding crowds.

“We have to address the virus with steady resolve. We can’t get swept away in fear, we have to understand what is going on, understand that we have a long road ahead but we also have to understand that within the context of the moment,” he said during a Miami press conference.

Florida International University epidemiologist Dr. Aileen Marty called the region's situation “extremely grave,” saying the public is not taking this virus seriously enough, ignoring the guidelines DeSantis and others have been pushing.
The chief for infection prevention at Jackson Health System, Dr. Lilian Abbo, described nurses and doctors working around the clock and some getting sick.

“We really need to work on this together,” she said. “Miami is now the epicenter of the pandemic. What we were seeing in Wuhan (China) six months ago. Now, we are there.”
