I know for a fact that hospitals in my city are transferring patients from standard hospital beds to ICU beds only so they will receive more government money. So for months now we're living in a rather unusual situation where those in ICU are always more than half the total number of hospitalized patients. Standard care beds for Covid-19 are 10% occupied versus over 50% occupied for ICU beds - which isn't a problem in itself here but it could be in other places if the same thing is happening elsewhere.

Shaking my head here.
