The Los Angeles Convention Center could be used to house coronavirus patients

The Los Angeles Convention Center has been offered to hospitals in Los Angeles County to be used as an additional facility to house more patients, Mayor Eric Garcetti confirmed in a news conference Monday.
Initially, the convention center was going to be used for non-coronavirus patients, but they’ve been asked to use the space for coronavirus patients, Garcetti said.
Over 3,000 medical professionals have volunteered to help, according to Garcetti.
“We’ll scramble and figure out how we can build a hospital for the first time, or a field facility, as it’s being formally called, in the convention center to help save lives,” Garcetti said.
