Patients With Coronavirus Being Treated in Spokane
Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane is treating four patients who have tested positive for the coronavirus. The patients are US citizens who will be staying at the hospital. We don't know where they were infected, but we know they flew into Spokane from Travis Air Force Base in California.
So why Spokane? Well, Sacred Heart is one of only 10 hospitals in the United States with "secure airborne infection isolation rooms." This particular facility can care for up to 10 patients, and it's 14,000 square feet. You shouldn't be concerned however, as hospital officials say the risk to the public is "very low."
