“It’s only a matter of time before our states' ICU beds fill up,” Cuomo said. “The federal government must act.”
The Army Corps of Engineers has “tremendous capacity,” Cuomo said at a news conference. “This is what they do, this is what they do. They build hospitals.”
“Get us backup beds so when the hospital is overwhelmed, we can have some of the people who are in hospital beds go to a backup facility,” he said.
