  1. Indiana intensive care unit usage
    Available ICU beds: 37.4%
    ICU beds in use by COVID-19 patients: 9.8%
    Available ventilators: 81.3%
    Ventilators in use for COVID-19: 2.3%

    I’m sure we have some other affliction consuming a higher percentage of ICU beds and ventilators… but we are too far committed to this “pandemic” financially and economically to accept that it is not public enemy #1… LET IT GO ALREADY!!
