As coronavirus cases continue to rise in North Dakota, concerns have been raised about the health system’s ability to handle the influx of patients, with one official claiming there are now less than 20 beds available in the state. 

“Right now, the hospitals have less than 20 beds available across the state,” said Renae Mock, director of Bismark-Burleigh Public Health (via CNN).

We have some hospitals in very rural areas that are having difficulty meeting the demand, and having to send patients to different areas across the state of North Dakota, and even had to send out of state at some point to Sioux Falls [South Dakota] and also Billings, Montana.”
