Field hospital built in famous Central Park to deal with NYC's coronavirus pandemic

An emergency field hospital has been erected in Central Park, New York City on Monday (March 30) and will be accepting patients tomorrow.

New York is expected to reach peak death rate in 10 days, at 800 deaths per day, from coronavirus, according to experts.

The group organizing and funding the hospital is called Samaritan's Purse, led by Franklin Graham, a notorious anti-LGBTQ preacher who has a track record of using humanitarian missions to promote an evangelical agenda.
