Orange County hospitals may have to start cancelling non-coronavirus treatments

UC Irvine Medical Center’s Dr. Shruti Gohil, an infectious disease doctor who treats ICU patients, also said non-virus treatment may have to be cut back at some point. …  She said they’re able to send stabilized virus patients home and can be monitored through telehealth visits. … And the UCI Medical Center is still able to juggle coronavirus treatments and non virus treatments because they’ve expanded their capacity, Gohil said.
