OC Ambulance Delays Increase

The Orange County Health Care Agency has said that ambulance wait times have increased with the rise in Covid 19 hospitalizations in the county.

The delay is caused by longer wait times at the hospitals when they drop off their patients because of the surge in Covid 19 patients.

The number of patients hospitalized in the county is approximately 454 and, growing. Hopefully hospitals will be able to spread patients out from harder hit areas to less hard hit hospitals but that means more driving time which affects the availability of ambulances.
