“We lived this nightmare, we learned from this nightmare and we’re going to correct for the lessons we learned during this nightmare,” (Governor Cuomo) said during a late-morning news conference.

As part of the new effort, DOH is asking all hospitals to immediately identify retired nurses and doctors who could be called upon to help fill staffing shortages, as well as prepare staffing plans for emergency field facilities.

Hospitals must also begin balancing patient loads within their individual networks to ensure one facility is not overwhelmed; plan to add up to 50 percent capacity; confirm their personal protective equipment stockpiles; and prepare to implement statewide “surge and flex” plans to move patients across systems.

I have no idea whether plans like this are being carried out in other states. I do know that while NY is experiencing a serious upsurge in Covid cases and hospitalizations, it's not as bad here -- yet, anyway -- as in other parts of the country.

And, sorry to bring him up again, I think that Trump's greatest failure as president was the way he did not deal with the pandemic correctly.
