This is, as the coronavirus task force warned, going to be a very bad week. (Just in the past few days, I've had one friend lost her aunt and her brother admitted to the ICU. Another friend's son is in the local COVID unit.) And remember, most of the deaths now are happening in people who don't have the luxury of staying home.
Athena Jones reported for CNN's New Day.
"Good morning, Alisyn, we're outside the Javits Center. It will open its doors to COVID-19 patients. This is as we begin with the federal task force saying it's going to be a tough week in the fight against the coronavirus. Experts claim a difficult week ahead for the nation," Jones said.
"As the numbers of cases are expected to peak in New York in the coming days."
"In New York, hospitals are bracing for the possibility of hitting the apex of COVID-19 cases this week. Mayor Bill Di Blasio warns the city only has enough ventilators and medical supplies for the next few days. This as the state saw a decrease in deaths over the weekend.
"[...] In some states, like Illinois and Michigan, the rates for ventilators and other medical supplies have governors growing more frustrated at the federal government's lack of an early response."
And in the meantime, Trump is pushing his miracle drug. How much money will he make?
