Los Angeles County needs face shields

Plastic face shields are the only personal protective item currently out of stock in Los Angeles County, according to Health Services Director Dr. Christina Ghaly.
“The stockpile has been distributed, those supplies come in on a daily basis,” she added about the city’s personal protective equipment.
There are 208 open ICU beds in Los Angeles County, Ghaly said. More efforts are being made to increase bed capacity – all hospitals have ability to surge capacity.
As for ventilators, currently 830 are available with approximately 200 more nearly available. Those units are either being serviced for proper use or are in the process of distribution.
