After two months of being considered a region with a high rate of COVID-19 patients, Lubbock hospitals are starting to see some relief.
Staffed hospital beds have been in short supply this month. Lubbock’s two hospital systems reported no available beds the first two weeks of December. The worst day was Dec. 11, when 22 patients were in need of a hospital bed, according to city data.
The situation has improved since Dec. 14. The most recent report shows 14 available beds.
