Alabama’s COVID-19 hospitalizations are down but COVID-19 is still running rampant around the state.

About 1,000 people have died in Alabama over the past month and ICU beds are still unavailable.

Alabama Hospital Association President Dr. Don Williamson said monoclonal antibody treatments are keeping many Alabamians out of hospitals. But in the coming weeks, the state will be provided fewer treatments.

Williamson said hospital employees are at their wit’s end by now.

“They’re exhausted, they’re fatigued and they’re frustrated,” he said. “Largely because this was a preventable surge.”
