Emergency room physician Dr. Ronald Kuroda stood Friday inside the new emergency care tent set up at The Queen’s Medical Center in Ewa Beach. The acute care module tent was set up in the parking lot of the emergency facility and is to provide emergency care to the predicted overflow of patients in light of the influx of COVID-19 infections.
The Rev. David Gierlach, rector at St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church in Honolulu, recently helped organize a small rally among religious leaders to promote vaccination. He said religious leaders have a natural role to play in combating the pandemic.
