Another federal medical team heads to Michigan to take on surging COVID-19 cases
A fourth federal medical team is coming to Michigan for a month.
The team will give support to Mercy Health Muskegon. That includes providing monoclonal antibody treatments.
The relief comes in the midst of the fourth surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
Gary Allore is President of Mercy Health Muskegon.
“Because of our full house and staffing concerns we have a lot of staff taking on higher patient loads than what is a normal patient load for any nurse or any physician.
Allore says this burden is unsustainable and is causing delayed care for non-emergency cases.
Three federal teams already in Michigan will be extended for another 30 days.
