Nebraska is taking similar action to Iowa in launching new efforts to stem the rise in Covid-19 cases in their state.
Governor Pete Ricketts is also launching a new public relations campaign to encourage Nebraskans to increase their pandemic precautions:
OC………as well. :12
Ricketts says while new cases are increasing rapidly in the state, the hospital capacity remains available to handle them:
OC………..our ventilators are available. :25
Dr. Gary Anthone, Nebraska’s Chief Medical Officer, says the state is trending the wrong way:
OC………..wrong direction. :18
Ricketts says everyone in the state has a role to play to reduce the spread of Covid-19 in the state.
