A hospital here (south Wales, UK) received the first CV patient in Wales a week or so ago.
Immediately caused disruption, 3 anaesthetists had to self isolate, putting the theatres into a staff shortage situation. Normal planned routines cancelled. Urgent and emergency operations only.
Situation went up the chain, and now it's now nationwide policy.
Staff retraining for makeshift intensive care duty (unfamiliar PPE and kit) ready for the wave.
