New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is going to ask US President Donald Trump to erect an additional four temporary hospitals in the state to cope with the coronavirus epidemic.
According to Cuomo, the peak of the epidemic in the state will come in 3 weeks. Earlier, local authorities decided to build 8 temporary hospitals. He also indicated that there should be a plan “B.”
“I will ask the President today if he will allow us to build 4 more temporary hospitals,” Cuomo said.
He noted that the Comfort hospital ship would arrive in New York on Monday.
