    Well if you want people to have peace of mind. Section off and Only esclusively admit coronavirus patients through one specific area of the hospital not through the regular emergency. Regular patients and corona virus patients should not be admitted in the same emergency department as non covid. Can you guarantee that? If you cant then the people will be staying away. Sad reality.
