Since the Delta variant took over as the dominant strain, increases in cases and hospitalizations have happened across the board locally and nationally.

Dr. Cliff Deveny is the president and CEO of Summa Health Systems, and he joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to look at the current numbers and how it continues to put a stress on the healthcare industry.
