The entire world is struggling with the pandemic of Coronavirus while a new report has come up from New York. The report projects an incident of tire deflation of all hospital staff including nurses, doctors and others who are standing ahead to fight against COVID-19.
Employees who are working tirelessly and courageously in this pandemic didn’t feel the love Friday morning. After an overnight shift at New York-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, staff finds their car tires deflated or slashed.
A total of 22 vehicles were found with slashed tires in the hospital parking lot, and police have arrested a suspect in the incident. The New York Police said in a statement they “received a complaint of criminal mischief” at around 7 in the morning.
