Rumble Vice President Mike Pence said the administration is considering requests from governors to quickly deploy "field hospitals" or "MASH" units (mobile army surgical hospital) to help treat those with the coronavirus.
He said said the Army Corps of Engineers is "ready, willing and able" to help increase bed capacity, including converting existing facilities.
"The president has tasked us to evaluate and ... consider every request from governors for either field hospitals, or the Army Corps of Engineers that could retrofit existing buildings," Pence said during a news conference on Tuesday at the White House.
