[ARCHIVED] Hospitals Concerned about Decrease in Non-COVID Urgent Medical Issues

Hospitals have been reporting a decrease in the number of people seeking medical attention for urgent, non-COVID-related issues like heart attacks, strokes, appendicitis, etc. Medical professionals are concerned that this may mean that people are delaying or avoiding seeking care for serious medical issues out of fear of contracting COVID-19. Many serious conditions like strokes can be successfully treated if care is received quickly – but can be fatal if treatment is delayed. 

Please do not hesitate to call 911 if you need immediate medical attention.
