Serious situation in Wisconsin, where a field hospital is being set up to care for a big surge in covid patients.
It's catching up with them now. In Wisconsin, Republicans have sued to stop public health measures, and won. Now hospitals are overwhelmed and they're building field hospitals for care. /14
Facing a depleted pool of clinicians from #coronavirus illness & an alarming surge in cases of #COVID19 overwhelming their hospitals, Wisconsin is allowing HCWs from out of state to practice & opening a field hospital at the state fairgrounds. #WearAMask
"Wisconsin is setting up a field hospital for Covid-19 patients as a surge in cases overwhelms hospitals"
Wisconsin coronavirus: State sets up field hospital for Covid-19 patients as surge overwhelms hospitals.
A sight I had hoped not to see again after New York's peak: Wisconsin Gov Evers announcing that a field hospital will be opened at the state fair park due to the surge in COVID19 hospitalizations in the state.
WI Gov's order "applies to any gatherings at locations open to the public...is likely to be challenged in court by state Republicans...In May, the WI Supreme Court struck down the state's stay-at-home order after Republican legislators filed suit."
