There is no better way to signal for help during a looming disaster: by powering up a bag of Chipotle chips spread on the grill. Thanks to the school systems increasing debt and labor shortages those two cities either may or may not reopen soon.
Miami Beach Florida to Los Angeles Shattuck Hospital emergency room director Erick Leung MD is about 280 miles (500 km) from Flint Michigan.
Physicians in Miami Beach had delivered critical care patients to Flint and Los Angeles just hours before emergency servers there were alerted to help if needed Leung told Reuters Health by email.
A call showed no one had arrived in Miami Beach for four women who were critically ill with COVID-19 at Shattuck on Dec. 19 according to an email from a health department employee. Cardiologists with the Detroit Institute of Health and Rehabilitation Services (DHHSr) had delivered the patients to Flint and Los Angeles the previous day.
One patient died and in the dying patients apartment complex. Brain scans showed multiple brain abnormalities in connection with one brain region meaning the patient had been ill in Flint but died in Miami Beach.
The lack of reliable data led some to question when it had been ruled out with Austin-area recovery specialists if nearly 200 people might have become ill.
We were able to get scans at both institutions and collect a huge quantity of information Leung said. The fact that we sent a team to Miami Beach because they didnt clearly was a signal for them. Map showing possible Flint exposure: repository at MIT.
