The head of the UMass Memorial Health Care in Worcester says there are 107 people in intensive care beds and he’s calling it the“worst day we’ve ever had” for intensive care usage at city hospitals.


The Worcester Telegram and Gazette reports Dr. Eric Dickson says the number of patients in ICU is up 20 from a week ago, which at that time was also a high-water mark.

But there is cause for cautious optimism. Worcester Mayor Joseph M. Petty saying the city has seen a “slight decline” in new cases.

On Saturday, state health officials reported 130 new deaths, bringing to nearly 3,850 the total number of deaths related to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
