California hospitals are filling up as coronavirus cases spike throughout the state. For months, hospitals avoided the surge in COVID-19 patients that threatened to overwhelm wards and stretch staff and supplies thin. Now, coronavirus hospitalizations in the state are at an all-time high. Hospitals across the state are reporting their beds are filling up fast and medications used to treat patients are running low. Officials also report the surge has hit the state unevenly with some medical facilities reporting their numbers staying flat, while others have risen sharply.
