NJ health commissioner: Expect COVID-19 hospitalizations to spike over next few weeks
The state's health
commissioner, Judith Persichilli, says she expects hospitalizations due to
COVID-19 to spike over the next few weeks.
Persichilli says hospitals
have enough PPE to make it through the surge, but not enough health care staff.
"We will have PPE, we
will have ventilators, what we will not have is the appropriate amount of
staffing that people are familiar with, conventional staffing,"
The Department of Health is
working with hospitals, which may have to proceed to contingency or even crisis
