The United States will deploy another 1,000 military health workers to help staff in hospitals around the country, the White House announced on Thursday.

This will be the second deployment of National Guard troops in healthcare facilities around the nation, the first one coming in December of 2021, in a bid to help struggling healthcare workers who are stretched beyond their limits as the number of patients skyrockets.

Although most facilities have not exceeded their patient limits, the number of healthcare workers testing positive for the coronavirus — even with the shortened isolation periods now called for by the CDC — means that there are staffing shortages in hospitals all across the country.
