Some American media reported that there are still problems in many parts of the United States to varying degrees in the distribution, transportation and vaccination of COVID-19 vaccines.
According to CBS, in some remote areas of Texas, local hospitals did not receive the first batch of coronavirus vaccines until the 21st of this month, and the total number of vaccines is less than 1,000 doses.
The hospital mentioned in the CBS report is located in Liberty County, Texas, which is also a local vaccination site. The hospital received the first batch of coronavirus vaccines on the 21st – a total of 975 doses, the report said. According to the report, there is a shortage of vaccines in many parts of Texas.
In Dallas, Texas, people queued up at the door a few hours before the vaccination point opened. Some residents made more than 100 phone calls to make an appointment for vaccination.
The report also pointed out that on the one hand, the supply of vaccines is in short supply, and on the other hand, new cases are constantly sent to hospitals, resulting in a shortage of medical resources.
In many hospitals, medical staff work for more than ten hours a day.
Cathy Kavanaugh, Chief Nursing Officer of the Emergency Hospital System: Our nurses work seven days a week and work unprecedentedly long hours.
This has never happened, but this is the reality. I really don’t know how to describe it.
