Emergency Hospital Set Up in Central Park to Help with Coronavirus Outbreak

New York is the hardest hit state by the coronavirus outbreak. And over half the cases are in New York City, a total of over 36,000 so far and 790 deaths citywide. There have already been many scary stores from the city with overrun hospitals, makeshift morgues in freezer trucks and more.

The latest is an emergency field hospital in Central Park. Sunday morning, trucks filled with equipment and supplies parked along 5th Avenue. The Samaritan’s Purse organization brought in four trailers of gear, that included tents, beds, personal protective equipment and 10 ventilators. A team of 70 health care workers will be on site, coming from around the US to help during the pandemic. It is located across the street from Manhattan’s Mount Sinai Hospital and it expected to open and be operational on Tuesday.

“This is honestly the most improbable place we’ve ever been. I never would have guessed we’d come to New York City with something like this. But New York never thought it would be dealing with a pandemic, either,” Dr. Elliott Tenpenny told the NY Post.

  1. These new Yorkers wil really go to any length to keep up this virus hoax. I heard they have been passing deaths as due to this virus.

    Trump we are with you. Please go hug a patient today.

  2. Of course New York would see the worst of it. People packed in and living so close together, ignoring social distancing. What did they expect?

  3. Might ADD that Delta,ong otherss, is flying medical people free to go treat people in other places. Certain limits but I bet this might count.
