Sen. Chuck Schumer calls for federal aid to help New York hospitals deal with RSV

New York Senator Chuck Schumer called on the federal government to prepare to act and aid New York as hospitals begin to deal with the surge of respiratory syncytial virus, reported Dec. 4.

Mr. Schumer pointed to the federal government's ability to surge staffing, move patients across state lines, credential out-of-state providers, expand telehealth and coordinate supply chains as potential tools to combat RSV.

The Senate majority leader made the call for aid with officials from New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based Northwell Health.
