Tulsa's Hospitals Are Crashing. The Mayor Says No One Is Listening


The mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma, says pleas from its overburdened hospitals to enforce mask-wearing are being ignored. Mayor G.T. Bynum says Tulsa hospitals are unable to meet the demands — but neither the governor nor the communities relying on these hospitals are responding. Business Insider reports roughly 68% of people occupying Tulsa hospitals are from communities outside it, which Tulsa cannot regulate. The rising cases of both COVID-19 and seasonal influenza are harming the ability of city employees to receive care. Bynum said one employee was denied hospital care until they developed pneumonia, and another was sent home with a 106-degree fever.

  • Austin Mayor Urges Residents To 'Stay Home' From Cabo Timeshare

    The mayor of Austin, Texas, told his constituents on a video call last month to 'stay home' and avoid unnecessary travel. The message was a bid to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus in the city and across Texas, as COVID-19 patients are already overwhelming hospitals. But according to Business Insider, Mayor Steve Adler, a Democrat, neglected to mention where he was when he filmed the public service announcement. In fact, he was speaking from a timeshare in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to which he'd flown on a private jet shared with eight other family members and guests. The day before the flight, Adler had hosted a wedding for his daughter, with 20 attending. As of Wednesday, more than 13.8 million Americans have tested positive for coronavirus and over 272,400 have died. Texas is the second worst-hit state in the US. It's surpassed 1.25 million cases and 22,100 deaths.

  • Paris hospital falls victim to $10m cyberattack: 'Hospitals are very attractive for attackers'

    A major French hospital in the southeast Paris region has fallen victim to a $10 million ransomware attack and has been struggling since this past weekend to provide emergency services and surgeries. For further analysis on this latest cyberattack against the health care sector, FRANCE 24 is joined by Matthieu Garin, Cybersecurity Expert at Wavestone. "Hospitals are very attractive for attackers," explains Mr. Garin. "They think that it will be easy to get the money from the ransom because the impact can be quite massive. Blocking emergency or imagery equipment can sometimes be a matter of life or death." And there is also the threat of leaking patient data on a massive scale, he adds. "All of those factors" make targeting hospitals, and the healthcare industry in general, a very attractive venture for cybercriminals.
