Morris Hospital has seen an uptick in the number of individuals being admitted for Covid-19.

Morris Hospital Emergency Medicine Physician Dr. Michael Kryza spoke about Covid-19 during a video put together by Morris Hospital this week.

Morris Hospital CEO and President Mark Steadham said there were 10 COVID positive inpatients at Morris Hospital on October 31, compared to 39 this past Tuesday.

Steadham said this is not about politics or not being afraid to contract the virus. It isn’t about the high recovery rate for the majority of people, and it isn’t about personal freedoms.

It’s about a public health crisis that’s starting to limit our ability to provide medical services to everyone who needs it.
