In Texas, there is a shortage of places in intensive care wards

At least 45 small school districts across Texas were forced to stop full-time classes temporarily

The publication Austin American-Statesman reported that hospitals in central Texas did not have free beds in intensive care units over the weekend.

This was the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 11 counties adjacent to the state capital Austin when there are no places for adults in intensive care units.

On Sunday, only four beds were available in the intensive care unit for children in this area. On Saturday, the situation was different: there was not a single empty seat.

The publication reports that at the beginning of the pandemic, there were 184 beds for adults and 29 beds for children in the region.

According to a survey conducted in August by the University of Texas at Austin, the rating of the governor of the state, Greg Abbott, fell to 41%. 50% of residents of the state believe that he does not cope with his duties. 35% of respondents believe that the state is moving in the right direction, and 52% of respondents hold the opposite opinion.

56% of Texans support the mandatory wearing of masks in schools, against – 35%.

Recall that in early August, Greg Abbott issued a decree prohibiting schools from requiring mandatory wearing, which caused a wave of criticism. Some schools refused to follow the governor’s decree.

After lawsuits from the state authorities to school districts responsible for school rules and parents to the governor, the Texas Supreme Court entered the case, which rejected Abbott’s request to block court decisions on his decree temporarily blocking it.

According to the Texas Department of Health Protection, 2607 new cases of infection with the virus and 53 deaths caused by it were registered on September 6.
