In Dallas County, TX, Judge“ Clay Jenkins said yesterday:
"We have zero ICU beds left for children. That means if your child’s in a car wreck, if your child has a congenital heart defect or something and needs an ICU bed, or more likely if they have COVID and need an ICU bed, we don’t have one,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins. Your child will wait for another child to die. Your child will just not get on the ventilator, your child will be CareFlighted to Temple or Oklahoma City or wherever we can find them a bed. But they won’t be getting one here unless one clears.”
Meantime, Gov. Greg Abbott is sticking to his guns, still prohibiting counties, cities, towns, and school districts from instituting local mask mandates in response to local conditions.
