ICU/Ventilators nearing capacity as tidal wave of cases peaks

Louisiana’s COVID-19 case count soared by nearly 2,000 Monday as an avalanche of test results flooded in. The state posted 1,857 new cases and 35 more deaths since Sunday. The trajectory of Louisiana’s death count appears to have leveled off, now at 512 reported deaths Monday, but, “It’s going to be the hardest, saddest week for Americans,” warns U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, citing total American deaths to top 10,000 this week. Louisiana continues to lead in per capita death rate with St. John the Baptist Parish at nearly 30 per 100,000 residents. Orleans Parish has 25.
