Schumer Helping Upstate Hospitals, Filled With RSV

December 5, 2022

Democrat Majority Leader, Senator Chuck Schumer has launched a major new push to increase federal support for Upstate hospitals strained by the dramatic increase in RSV cases. Schumer says quote “Hospitals are doing their best on the frontlines, but the feds need to step up with a comprehensive plan to respond to this major spike and be ready for it to get worse. Schumer says the feds have a unique ability to get more doctors and supplies where it’s needed, and they need to be prepared to do so. Nobody really knows what will come next, and if an Upstate hospital says they need something, the feds need to be able to say ‘help is on the way right now.’ Hospitals cannot afford to wait.”
