(Bob Hague, WRN) In a year-end interview, Governor Tony Evers asks Wisconsinites who haven’t yet gotten a COVID-19 vaccine to help out by doing so.
“People are more than willing to help out their neighbors, and I’ve seen it time and time and time again. This is one of those times when you can help out your neighbor, by getting a vaccine. There’s no denying it that we have people who are dying of COVID-19 or getting very sick. This is an opportunity for people to say ‘okay, I care about my neighbors.’”
Governor Tony Evers continued, “If we truly want our hospitals to be able to take care of cardiac arrests and cancer surgeries and the typical things that challenge people physically in our state, we have to reduce the impact of COVID-19 patients on the hospitals. And most of those people that are in the hospitals have not been vaccinated.”
As of Monday, the Wisconsin Hospitals Association dashboard showed 1600 COVID-19 patients hospitalized, including 411 in ICU beds.
