Emergency medical tents provided by the state will alleviate some stress on Lubbock’s hospital capacity. At least medical experts hope so.
On Thursday morning, a team of workers installed copper piping throughout one tent on the Covenant Health campus in Central Lubbock. It’ll be ready for patients early next week. A tent was also issued to University Medical Center.
They’ll be able to treat 60 COVID-19 patients a day at the Covenant location.
