The report I got stated that:
The National Guard has been moved into Maine for an outbreak at what appears to be a few assisted living facilities for the elderly.
Canadian Nurses have been offered jobs to come and assist from New Brunswick.
What we can speculate:
Likely everyone in the facilities where the outbreak took place was fully up to date with the mRNA shots.
We will post more when we know more.
The governors of Maine and New Hampshire announced Wednesday that they are activating the National Guard to help expand capacity at hospitals amid a serious winter COVID-19 surge.
New Hampshire also announced that it is bringing in Federal Emergency Management Agency teams as early as this week to assist at hospitals.
Here’s what we know about what the two states are doing:
Maine’s governor activated as many as 75 members of the Maine National Guard on Wednesday to help expand capacity at health care facilities.
The state is dealing with a surge in COVID-19 that has challenged its hospitals. A record of 379 people were hospitalized Wednesday with the virus.
(The article goes on to tell everyone to get vaccinated without bothering to tell anyone how many of those who are in hospital are already up to date with their Coercion-shots.)
“I do not take this action lightly, but we must take steps to alleviate the strain on our health care system,” Maine Gov. Janet Mills said.
In a statement on Wednesday, the New York National Guard announced that it had deployed 120 Army medics and Air Force medical technicians to 12 nursing homes and long-term care facilities across the state.
UPDATE: Maine deploys national guard to assist hospitals with COVID surge despite high vaccination rates
Maine has activated its national guard to assist hospitals across the state deal with a recent Covid surge, as the Northeast U.S. gets slammed by a surge in Covid cases.
The move was announced by Gov Janet Mills on Wednesday as hospitalizations in her state have increased by nearly 20 percent in the past two weeks.
Interestingly, states in the Northeast suffering from Covid surges are also leading the nation in vaccination rate.
Vermont (74 percent of population fully vaccinated); Rhode Island (74 percent); Maine (73 percent); Connecticut (73 percent) and Massachusetts (72 percent) are the top five U.S. states in vaccination rate.
New Hampshire also leads the nation in the share of people having received at least one shot, at 90 percent, with 63 percent of people being fully vaccinated.
