ST. LOUIS–Military doctors or medical teams staffed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency could be in the St. Louis area if the federal government answers a call for help from the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force.
On Thursday, Dr. Alex Garza, Task Force Leader, told FOX2 that it’s the first time hospitals here have needed to make the request, as hospitals not only see the most patients they’ve seen during the pandemic, but are losing staff to sick days brought on by their own COVID cases or those close to them.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers were praised as heroes, but now that seems to have changed. Healthcare workers around the Ozarks say over the last few months they’ve experienced yelling and even threats.
“We were being talked about as healthcare heroes and now for whatever reason, we’ve become the whipping post of healthcare,” said Tracy Hill, a registered nurse at Mercy Hospital. “Part of it is just disbelief on our part. We do not understand why we are being treated the way that we are being treated. We’re challenged with providing care to extremely sick patients. I would never go into a store and have the conversations patients are trying to have with us. I’m in a position to help them and provide care.”
BUTLER, Mo. – The Missouri Lottery found the million-dollar prize winners they were looking for. Two people are claiming the Mega Million ticket purchased for the January 7 drawing in Butler, Missouri. It matched all five white-ball numbers drawn.
The player who purchased the winning ticket tells lotto officials that it was “of the norm” for her to play Mega Millions. After the drawing, the players realized the Quick Pick ticket had won them a $1 million prize. They apparently did not immediately claim the prize.
