U.S. Prepares for Prolonged Shutdowns as Coronavirus Strains Hospitals
A U.S. Navy ship outfitted with 1,000 hospital beds pulled into New York Harbor. Tents sprung up in New York Cityâ€™s Central Park. The Javits Center, a 1.8 million-square-foot convention center in Manhattan, opened its doors as a makeshift hospital.
They are part of a striking new reality in New York City and across America, as state and federal leaders take steps unprecedented in modern times to fight the global coronavirus pandemic that has infected nearly 160,000 Americans and more than 775,000 people globally.
With nearly half of states now reporting more than 1,000 confirmed infections, governors and mayors across the U.S. are working to secure more medical supplies, adding restrictions and asking the federal government for better coordination....

Apparently this set up in Central Park is the same as that hospital in Italy. Nasty situation in NY, especially in and around NYC. Praying you and yours aren't in the midst of that, Brother.
No, but thanks, QC. We do have some cases in our area, but I am farther from NYC than Washington DC is. Mt. Cuomo likes to apply rules evenly across the State. There has been nonsensical talk of travel limitations for NYS, NJ, and Connecticut, (CDC has issued travel advisory) so as to keep it behind State lines I guess. Viruses apparently respect State lines. Like I said, Washington is closer to NYC than my address is, is just an ignored reality, one of the irrational responses to this whole thing.
Samaritanâ€™s purse is headed by...., once that name is known, atheists, progressives and the Pharisees and Sadducees will all clamor for â€ś he who shall not be namedâ€ť good old fashioned mass media lynching. .

Well QC, how else can the politicians take credit, and the name of Jesus be suppressed? btw, Samaritan's Purse has also built a good sized field hospital in Italy.
May the Lord encourage His people to be light among darkness to be doers & hearers of His life changing Word amen!
