We are all doing our part together, Chicago, to fight against the Coronavirus, and every day the amount of effort put into the fight by those staying at home, at the hospitals, or in the essential stores, makes me so proud of the city as a whole.
Over the weekend another accomplishment was added to the feats that the city has gone through to combat the virus, with the construction of the hospital within the McCormick Place. After just five days the convention center, which is usually filled with cars, boats, and trade show booths, was filled with three thousand hospital beds. The quick construction was made possible by carpenters and other workers' constant work to convert the center on schedule. This makes it larger than the largest hospital in the whole state, with nearly 140 “health care heroes” as well as the National Guard already signed up to help out.
So thank you to everyone who helped create this feat of human effort and kindness, and who are willing to risk their lives to make the lives of the healthcare workers easier. If you want to know more about this amazing feat done by your fellow Chicagoans, you can head over to the main article here.
