Tennessee hospitals have enough beds to handle swine flu, study finds
AP/The Tennessean, October 2, 2009
If a third of people wind up catching swine flu in the United States, Tennessee would have enough hospital beds at the outbreak peak to serve the sickest, a new report states. The nonprofit Trust for America's Health estimates the number of people hospitalized could range from a high of 168,000 in California to just under 2,500 in Wyoming. An estimated 15 states could run out of hospital beds around the time the outbreak reached a tipping point, the report found.
