Samaritan's Purse, a US-based Christian global relief agency, is building a field hospital on Central Park's East Meadow lawn, from one of the facilities in the Mount Sinai hospital group. "It's very surreal to be here in New York," says Christine Dirks, a nurse more used to operating on abroad fields. The NGO already has a similar facility in Italy where they are helping with the coronavirus outbreak. The Central Park field hospital will have a 68 beds capacity, including ICU beds, and will be ready to take care of patients on Tuesday morning.
