U.S. hospitals across the US are preparing to receive patients with the coronavirus, supported by guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to The New York Post.

Healthcare facilities are being told to limit the number of patients they treat, but also be prepared to react if the cases spike.

In addition to providing access to negative-pressure airborne infection isolation rooms, hospitals are also asked to make certain their supplies of hygiene products are fully stocked to help control the spread of the virus.
