Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens is already facing a deeply concerning volume of COVID-19 patients. This video captured earlier today and posted to YouTube shows just how crowded the emergency room at this New York City hospital already is.
Earlier today, we wrote an article stating that someone in New York is dying every 17 minutes from coronavirus. This was just 6 hours ago, and now a report by MarketWatch finds that number is one victim every 9.5 minutes now.
That is how quickly the spread of this virus is impacting the city informally considered by many to be the capital of the world.
New York still has the most cases of any US state, now up to 52,318. An additional 6,056 cases have been reported today as of 5:40pm ET, making this likely to top yesterday’s single-day increase of 7,285 cases.
