Charlotte child can’t get vital surgery because UNC Hospital filled to capacity with covid patients

A Charlotte family says a vitally important surgery to help their daughter breathe on her own is now on hold due to the rising number of children in the hospital sick with Covid-19. Doctors at UNC Chapel Hill soon gave the family hope that Emma could finally be able to breathe on her own.  They discussed the possibility of performing Airway Reconstruction Surgery.  But, now that plan is on hold because UNC Chapel Hill hospital doesn’t have enough available beds or staff.
