The Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York is set to become an emergency hospital in collaboration with the charity Samaritan & # 39; s Purse, was announced on Monday. The charity, led by evangelist Franklin Graham, has already opened two emergency hospitals in the United States and Italy (News, April 3). It is hoped that the building, its nave
will hold 400 hospital beds, will admit patients within ten days. It is still unclear whether the cathedral will accept coronavirus patients. The crypt is used as a "staging area" for medical personnel, said the dean, Rt. Rev. Clifton Daniel III., The New York Times.
