Submission + - Computer Virus forces US Hospital & Trauma Cen->

McGruber writes: The Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper is reporting [http://www.ajc.com/news/gwinnett/ambulances-turned-away-as-1255750.html] that hospitals in Lawrenceville and Duluth, Georgia, USA, turned ambulances away after the hospitals discovered "a system-wide computer virus that slowed patient registration and other operations."

One of the hospital "went to total diversion status because it's a trauma center and needs to be able to respond rapidly."

The situation began on Thursday afternoon and is expected to last thru the weekend.
