USA Today quotes Kaye in report on coronavirus pandemic, ICU bed shortage

USA Today quoted Lenard Kaye, a professor of social work and director of the University of Maine Center on Aging, in the article “Amid coronavirus pandemic, millions of older Americans live in counties with no ICU beds.” “The implications are tremendous and very troubling. Individuals are going to reach out for help in an emergency, and those beds may well not be available,” said Kaye. Health workers might need to resort to “triaging and tough decisions,” Kaye said, “on who beds are allocated to.”
