Benefits of dedicated COVID-19 hospitals, ECMO; air sampling after aerosol-generating procedures

A health system reported outcomes at two hospitals created to treat only COVID-19. Another found that 42.9% of COVID-19 patients who got ECMO died, compared to 89.1% when it wasn't available. A sampling study compared viral particles in the air with different procedures.
