AREA WIDE -- District 10 ICU beds are filling up and the numbers are going in the wrong direction.
In District 10, about 10% of the ICU beds were available as of the latest update. That's down from over 11% Wednesday.
That amounts to around 220 open ICU beds for the entire district, which includes Dubois, Daviess, Martin, Pike, Perry, and Spencer Counties and points west.
Around 74% of the district’s ventilators are currently available. That’s around 350 machines.
To preserve hospital bed and staff capacity, all non-emergent procedures should be postponed through January 3rd, if possible.
