    Health authorities in Santa Clara County are worried about a rise as ICU beds fill rapidly.

    On Sunday hundreds of people visited the COVID fairground in San Jose County, but public health authorities said it is not enough to fly to the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds.

    Santa Clara County hospitals remain exhausted as patients with COVID fill acute treatment centers. In the county of two million residents, just 25 ICU beds took place on Sunday night and hospitals had to strategize how to cater to patients.

    With an increase in the number of patients in all his Northern California hospitals, Kaiser Permanente has delayed optional and non-urgent operations until 4 January.

    Sutter health also postpones such optional procedures.

    There are also thinly expanded emergency departments. Today, health officials of the region once again asked for a COVID test to be taken to attend COVID research sites such as those of Santa Clara County.

    Kamal said that 40% of people with COVID are asymptomatic, so not just those with symptoms are relevant for everyone to avoid travel and to meet people outside their families.

    “Because people were traveling and meeting, we are still worried about the surge,” Kamal said. “We have all been able to take thanksgiving.”

    He then urgently canceled New Year’s Eve plans, as he said that the county absolutely cannot afford to provide additional COVID events.
