The COVID-19 epidemic in the United States has not worsened, and American media reports say that many hospitals in the United States are in crisis. Some hospitals have been forced to convert parking lots into temporary treatment places, but there are voices in the United States accusing these hospitals of creating false information. In this regard, CBS interviewed a parking temporary hospital in Nevada in the western United States.
According to the data released by the Nevada Hospital Association on the 7th local time, with the recent surge in cases, the number of hospitalizations in Nevada due to COVID-19 has more than doubled in the past month. In the Reno area of the state, a local hospital had to build a temporary hospital in the parking lot to receive patients.
Tony Slonim, head of the Reno Regional Health System: Our front-line medical staff are experiencing what they never thought would happen. The epidemic took my father’s life. We couldn’t be with him until he died, but as a former ICU doctor, I know that the medical staff are there to comfort him.
Local nurse Janet Baum: I have never seen such a thing since I worked. Even in my worst nightmare, I never thought that we would see so many deaths.
Local intensive care unit doctor Jacob: People in medicine never thought that they would provide care in a parking lot.
CBS reported that Jacob posted pictures and information on social media just before the temporary hospital accepted patients, but some people said it was not true on social media, and the White House also retweeted that it was false news.
Local intensive care unit doctor Jacob: If this is not true, which hospital would like to let everyone see that they are treating patients in a parking lot, knowing that people’s relatives die every day.
