Two makeshift hospitals just opened in New York City to help battle the coronavirus pandemic

A field hospital built in Central Park for coronavirus patients just opened. The 14-tent, 68-bed hospital includes a makeshift intensive care unit with 10 beds. The Javits Convention Center has also been converted into a 2,500-bed emergency facility to provide relief to the city's overwhelmed hospitals. Another well-known site, the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, which hosts the U.S. Open, will be converted into a 350-bed temporary hospital, with work on the project to start Tuesday.
