Mayor Eric Adams has unveiled a plan to help city hospitals battle the COVID crisis.

In order to handle the surge, he is directing more than $100 million dollars into city-run hospitals to hire more staff. At least $27 million dollars in loans will be offered to non-profit hospitals that serve primarily low-income patients.

As of Monday, Jan.3, there were 5,500 people in city hospitals with COVID-19 – that’s the most since the spring of 2020.
