A friend who is a paramedic mentioned that yesterday New York City had around 6500 emergency calls. For comparison, on an average day, NYC gets around 4000-4500 calls. All of the calls my friend responded to yesterday were coronavirus related. All of the patients tested positive for coronavirus. Half of them are now in ICU.
Things will definitely get worse before they get better.
On another note, below are more photos from the city during self-isolation. These photos are from Bryant Park on March 19, 2020 around 6:30pm.
