(KFTK) – System Director of Infection Prevention with SSM Health Christine Zirges said the hospital community in St. Louis has been planning for this since late January. 

"We are watching the data and when do we anticipate those numbers to increase,” she said.

She said in the next two or three weeks is when we might see a peak. It is still unknown, but they are preparing for the healthcare facilities to ramp up.

“We are starting to feel that pinch,” she said.

Has social distancing decreased our chances of spreading the virus? “We need people to pay attention to this social distancing,” she warned.

“Staying in your home will minimize the transition of this virus.”
