The United States is approaching the number of new daily corona virus cases in the latest ugly sign of disease outbreaks in the country.
Its impact is being felt in all parts of the country, and a health official in Florida is urging people to stop celebrating their birthdays. At the same time, the depressing situation at a hospital in northern Idaho, where there is no room for patients, is on the rise.
“We have closed the entire floor of our hospital,” said Dr. John H. Snyder, a pulmonologist at Cotenay Health Hospital in Coir de Alen. Robert Skoggins said.
“We should have double rooms. We bought more hospital beds.
“Our hospital was not built for an epidemic.”
Meanwhile, in the southern Idaho city of Twin Falls, St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center said it would no longer accept children because it was plagued by corona virus patients.
All under the age of 18, except newborns, will be sent to Boise, 128 miles away.

In Florida, one of the most populous counties in the state, top health officials discouraged parents from celebrating birthdays for their children.
Half of the 30 people who attended the Sweet 16 party in the Orlando area recently were infected with the virus, according to Orange County State Health Officer Dr. Raul Pino said.
Last month, Orange County High School was closed for two weeks after students who attended a birthday party tested positive.
“Those parties will affect not only the people who take part in the operation, but everyone who comes in contact with them as they go,” he said.
“If we do not act responsibly, we will continue to see consequences.”
Utah Governor Gary Herbert announced yesterday that “Utah has declared a record day, but it’s not a good one,” as the Covid-19 cases have reached an all-time high in the state.
He said: “So far, our hospitals have been able to provide good care to all the Kovid and Non-Kovid patients who need it.
“It simply came to our notice then. Unless Utah takes serious steps to limit group gatherings and wear masks, our healthcare providers will not be able to provide quality care to all who need it. ”

According to the Public Health Order, masks are required in 21 cases, Herbert said.
The seven-day rolling average of new daily Covid-19 cases in the U.S. crossed 61,140 on Thursday, up from 44,647 two weeks ago.
On July 22, the Florida, Texas, Arizona, and California epidemics averaged 67,293 when the summer erupted following the outbreak.
The U.S. reported 71,671 new cases Thursday.
The jump reflects a similarly widespread leap in Europe, where Rome, Paris and other major cities are firmly entrenched in nightlife, as part of increasing austerity measures to slow the spread of the epidemic.
The head of the World Health Organization has warned that countries in the northern hemisphere are at a critical juncture as cases and deaths continue to rise.
“The next few months will be tough and some countries are on a dangerous path,” said Tedros Adanom Gebrias, director general of the World Health Organization.
