Sharing is Caring!

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — New York could hit “PAUSE” again if the state hits “a real hospitalization crisis,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned Monday, as the number of residents hospitalized with COVID-19 continued to climb.

COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state have increased “dramatically” in recent months, from 891 on June 29 to 3,532 on Sunday, Cuomo said at a news briefing. Hospitals, meanwhile, are “already experiencing staffing shortages,” he said.

As a result, the state has initiated a number of “emergency hospital procedures,” including recruiting retired nurses and doctors to help treat COVID-19 patients; directing hospitals to increase capacity by 50 percent; and drafting plans for emergency field hospitals, he said.
