Federal Emergency Management Agency recently showed the media its new medical overflow facility, a 1,000-bed temporary hospital at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an article on the Rolling Stone website.

The Army Corp. of Engineers also  have  identified four additional sites for temporary hospitals .

The temp facilities will be established at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, the Aqueduct Racetrack facility in Queens, CUNY Staten Island and the New York Expo Center in the Bronx — adding an additional 4,000 beds to the state’s capacity.

These new temporary hospital sites are part of a plan to create thousands of new beds to bolster existing hospital capacity, with the goal of being open to patients in early- to mid-April.
