New York continues to see a surge in COVID-19 cases - as per latest estimates, the number of cases in the state stands at 75,983 with 1,714 deaths. Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday the city was tripling hospital capacity.

Uh, may I suggest NOT putting COVID-19 or ICU patients in field hosptials. Use them for patients that are stable and not known to be carrying a highly communicable dissease.

What did all those doctors and nurses to with the other hospitals... one day you have 10-20 hospitals now you need 100? Someone should look into this... I’m not saying they’re hording hospitals, it’s possibly much worse.
