"Let’s not hold the victory parade yet, but let’s be optimistic," Dean Boris Lushniak tells The Washington Post
Hospitals in the Washington, D.C. area are ready to safely handle an expected surge of COVID-19 patients, The Washington Post reported. Since March, the region's hospitals have dramatically expanded capacity with thousands of beds and personal protective equipment.
“When it comes to the surge that we were expecting in the hospitals, overall this region has done very well," Dean Boris D. Lushniak told The Washington Post. "We have not had the nightmarish scenarios of halls filled up with [sick] people.”
