Andy Humm memorialized Kelly at Gay City News: Just five weeks ago - before all of this - I was sent by New Alternatives for Homeless LGBT Youth, where I'm on the board, to look in on a client hospitalized in Mount Sinai who was in awful pain and not getting proper care. Kelly, 48, was admitted to Mount Sinai's flagship hospital on the Upper East Side on March 17 and died Tuesday night, the workers said.

While New York is now considered one of the most affected states, healthcare employees at Mount Sinai West hospital in Manhattan were asked to were thrash bags while treating COVID-19 patients.

This daily government tally only accounts for those dying in hospital, but authorities said they would soon be able to compile data on deaths in retirement homes, which is likely to result in a big increase in registered fatalities.

At Mount Sinai West, in the same hospital system where Kelly worked, nurses published a photo on social media showing them fashioning plastic trash bags into protective outfits, according to the Post. Annie wrote that "GIVE your unnecessarily stocked masks, N95s, N99s, gloves, isolation gowns, and Medical Protective Gear to your local hospitals".

Mount Sinai West has about 40 coronavirus patients scattered throughout the building, sources said.

His sister confirmed his death to The Post, saying she was told he had been in the ICU, but that he did not think it was serious. "Today, we lost another hero - a compassionate colleague, friend and selfless caregiver". The nursing manager tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago and he thought it was still manageable. And our closeness is what makes us who we are.

The situation in NY is not good at all, Independent UK reported.
