While Connecticut's number of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations and deaths continues to rise, Gov. Ned Lamont today insisted that they "seem to be flattening out."
Gov. Ned Lamont said the state's lack of ventilators remains a matter of growing concern, as Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, said yesterday that Connecticut could be one of the nationâ€™s next hot spots. â€œSouthern Connecticut is (already) one of those hot spots, and has been for some time,â€ the governor said.
In other developments today: The state is currently on track to end Fiscal Year 2020 with a General Fund deficit of $170 million; a new statewide organization has been formed to help Connecticut's nonprofits; and according to one model, Connecticutâ€™s hospitals will hit peak resource use on April 16, at which time there will be a shortage of 2,167 hospital beds and a deficit of 499 ICU beds. The same model predicts 1,092 virus-related deaths here through Aug. 4.
