Doctors in Alberta warn the province's healthcare system is under threat because of personnel shortages and soaring patient numbers. Infections such as influenza and COVID are also increasing the number of persons admitted to the intensive care unit. Dr. Paul Parks, President of the Alberta Medical Association, stated. The health industry in the province is facing several issues. It's flu season, and hospitals are jam-packed. The majority of the patients are overburdened. Another issue is a lack of personnel. Parks thinks that we should talk about how to restructure the health-care system and how to improve it in the long run. The issues confronting the healthcare sector are immense. He further cautioned that if the current situation continues, the healthcare system will be destroyed.
