As overrun Idaho hospitals ration care, doctors fear a COVID peak may still be weeks away


COVID-19 cases in Idaho are up more than 40% in the last two weeks, and hospitalizations up 25%. Some hospitals in the state’s northern part are having to ration the care they give.

William Brangham discusses the state’s rationing of care with Brian Whitlock, the CEO of the Idaho Hospital Association.
