U.S. National Guardsmen will be deployed to Oregon hospitals to assist medical professionals




As many as 1,500 U.S. Army National Guard troops will be sent to Oregon's hospitals to help care for patients stricken by the Delta strain of coronavirus, Governor Kate Brown announced today. This was reported by the Associated Press.





Brown noted that the first group of 500 National Guard representatives will be sent to 20 Oregon hospitals as early as next Friday. They will deliver supplies and equipment to the busiest hospitals and help test patients for COVID-19.

The publication notes that as of Aug. 13, 733 people in Oregon had been hospitalized with the coronavirus, including 185 in intensive care units. That's almost double the number from two weeks ago.

“I cannot sufficiently assess the severity of this crisis for all Oregonians, especially those in need of emergency and intensive care,” Brown stressed.

Earlier, Dr. Cyrus Shahpar, director of pandemic statistics at the White House, reported that half of Americans of various ages have been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus infection.
