Prayer #226: For Colorado's Spike in COVID-19
Colorado is experiencing a very steep rise in COVID-19 cases and is another state that really is experiencing its first true wave of the virus. From March until this fall, daily cases reported for the state remained in the hundreds. With a fast rise in October and into November, the daily cases yesterday had reached 121,504. "We're seeing a steep rise in hospitalizations and mounting pressure on the hospital system," Rachel Herlihy, an epidemiologist with the Colorado Department of Health, announced at a press conference. Presently, 82% of the ICU bed capacity is occupied, with another 80% of acute care beds in use. Public health officials believe that, if the spiking trend of COVID-19 continues, the ICU capacity will be exceeded by mid-December.
Pray today for the state of Colorado during this big surge in COVID-19. Pray especially that there will be adequate ICU capacity for those with severe cases of the virus needing it. Pray for God's protection for those who are most at risk.
