Ray DeMonia wasn't seeking Covid-19 treatment when he arrived at an Alabama hospital with heart problems. But the 73-year-old became an indirect victim of Covid-19 patients filling hospitals and ICU beds. The cardiac patient from Cullman, Alabama, died in a Mississippi hospital about 200 miles from his home because there were no cardiac ICU beds nearby, his daughter Raven DeMonia told The Washington Post. "Due to COVID 19, CRMC emergency staff contacted 43 hospitals in 3 states in search of a Cardiac ICU bed and finally located one in Meridian, MS. He would not want any other family to go through what his did."
