    Only a centralised and authoritarian government could do that I think. I doubt whether even emergency powers or executive orders would be near enough. Of course it's a completely different economic scenario. I even doubt there's a design on the books, let alone a State organisation that could effectively oversee it. Then again maybe there is, EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACT 2013

    There is talk here of hospitals 'opening their surge capacity'. There is no surge capacity, hospitals are full every day now.

    That isn’t a hospital. According to people that have been there it’s just a giant room full of beds with no medical facilities. Or you could believe the Chinese government.

    A local heath Dept shiny bum was on the radio here yesterday and was asked about surge capacity. She basically bluffed and said in a roundabout way that they are working on it. Sheesh, we can't even get people out of ambulances and into our shiny new hospital. I'd have thought it's pretty easy, just take over a hotel or two close to the hospital.

    at least it is a place to house those too sick to be at home when there is not enough room at the local clinic/hospital.

    Bit in the paper today about doing much the same as for the Spanish Flu if it came to it. Canceling crowd and sporting events, proroguing school, taking over halls and stadiums, emergency morgues, mass burials etc.
