Overwhelmed U.S. Medical Workers Hope Omicron Will Mark End of Coronavirus Pandemic but Say ‘Only the Lord Knows’

The Omicron surge is overwhelming America’s front-line health care workers.

The double dose of Omicron patients combined with a dire shortage of hospital workers is slamming hospitals nationwide, including Titus Regional Medical Center in Mt. Pleasant, Texas.  Craig DeLisi, M.D., told CBN News that the hospital is admitting its highest number of COVID-19 patients since the pandemic began.

“This is a bad time to have anything else going on whether it’s a heart attack or a stroke or needing an elective surgery that has some urgency,” he said. “People are overwhelmed. I mean resources are really, really, stretched right now.”

Health care workers are struggling to fulfill their duties during this crisis that’s dragged on for two years. Dr. DeLisi says his faith helps him cope.

“I feel the frustration that so many people have, that just feels like we’re going to be here forever, it’ll always be like this,” he said. “If I wasn’t a believer, I think there could be a sense of hopelessness there.”
