Beaumont Health, Michigan's largest hospital system, warned Thursday that it had reached a "breaking point" amid a surge in COVID-19 patients, resulting in a federal medical team extending its 30-day commitment to its Dearborn location an additional 30 days. 

The number of the eight-hospital system's COVID-19 patients increased by about 40% over the past week to 750 patients. About 65% of those hospitalized in the 3,375-bed system are unvaccinated while about 8% have received a booster, according to hospital officials.
