The bodies of three men were discovered in different hotel rooms over the weekend.

Manhattan, NY – Three COVID-19 patients who had been treated and released from different area hospitals were found dead at a hotel that is being used to house those who are in quarantine as they transition out of medical facilities.

The bodies were discovered at the Hilton Garden Inn on West 37th Street over the weekend, Newsweek reported.

"These are three people who were in hospitals for COVID-19, got care, recovered and were released,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed, according to WNBC.

One of the patients had been treated at Harlem Hospital, another was treated at Maimonides Hospital, and the third had been treated at Montefiore in the Bronx, WNYW reported.

The bodies of two of the men – ages 70 and 42, were discovered in separate rooms on Saturday.

The body of the third person, age 64, was found in another guest room on Sunday.

Investigators said that the deaths were unrelated to one another and that there is no foul play suspected, WNYW reported.

The medical examiner’s office will determine their exact causes of death, a New York Police Department (NYPD) spokesperson told Newsweek.

“Something doesn't make sense here," de Blasio acknowledged during a coronavirus briefing on Monday, according to WNYW. "We are doing a full review here to understand that. We are going to add more medical personnel to do more checking in with people."

The New York City Office of Emergency Management has a contract with the Hilton Garden Inn hotel to use it to house patients who tested positive for the novel coronavirus but had been released from hospitals, WNYW reported.

“New Yorkers staying in these hotels have been determined by hospitals who are discharging them to not need medical care or hospitalization,” the city said in a statement.

The city said it is also “taking every precaution to ensure” that the needs of citizens quarantined at the hotel are having their needs met.

"The City has made hotel rooms available to individuals who, for various reasons, are unable to isolate at home," the city said in a statement to Newsweek. "Every death due to this disease is a tragedy, and we are reviewing these incidents."

According to an unnamed city official, workers contact each person in quarantine at the hotel by telephone to check on them daily, Newsweek reported.

If the patient doesn’t answer, hotel workers are to go to their rooms and knock on their doors.

Patients with worsening symptoms are directed to a hospital.

"We absolutely are going to check on people more deeply in that facility," de Blasio said, according to WNBC. "We're confused as to how this could have happened."

The city noted that the number of personnel working at with patients in isolation hotels across the city will be increased in order to provide more help, WNYW reported.

On Friday, de Blasio announced that another 11,000 hotel rooms will be made available for residents who are unable to self-isolate at their homes, according to Newsweek.

"Anyone who needs that quarantine, who's in a situation where they can't properly socially distance from the people around them—they're symptomatic or they have a test positive—if they want to be in one of the hotel rooms, it will be provided to them for free," the mayor confirmed.

As of Tuesday, 247,512 residents of New York had tested positive for coronavirus, and 17,671 have died, according to Bing’s COVID-19 Tracker.

We can all thank China for this pandemic. The Chinese Coronavirus started in a Chinese laboratory and it spread like wildfire across the globe. Now we have to deal with the consequences.

Forget China. The USA cases started with Europeans. No evidence support the bat conspiracy. But, even though Europeans introduced it to the USA, the Chinese government did lie to the WHO and the CDC saying there was no evidence showing person to person transmission and silenced their own Chinese version of the CDC's doctors.
Trump made it worse by praising the Chinese as transparent, honest, people and only put a Chinese travel ban that excluded Americans once the Chinese lie was dispelled by the WHO by the way.
This " ban" allowed 40,000 Americans to fly back into the USA from China, to spread the virus even more.
Trump did nothing in February other than blame the Chinese, the WHO, Obama, the Democratic hoax, and now, Biden. Now his answer is to see if injecting Lysol into your body and putting lights inside your body works. " It would disappear in a minute, a minute" he stated twice and asked Dr Birx, another Trump bootlicker, to look into it then backpedalled saying he was being sarcastic to a reporter's question to see what he would say. Liar!! He wasn't even looking at the press Corp and didn't sound sarcastic to me. He said it nonchalantly.

I’m with whoever but realize, Covid19 didn’t appear out of nowhere.

True story, October & November of last year I was at Urgent Care and/or Emergency Room for “unknown” Upper Tract Infection. It finally resolved right before Xmas.

Covid19 as they call it, I swear, has been around UNDIAGNOSED and making people sick or killing them.

It is real. It kills. Doctors are not God’s.
