    Nirenberg back on CNN, says San Antonio’s ‘very dire’ COVID-19 crisis is ‘déjà vu’ – By Madalyn Mendoza (MySA) / July 14 2020

    San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg joined Don Lemon on “CNN Tonight” again Monday, this time in a “déjà vu” scenario the nation watched unfold in New York months ago.

    The mayor has made multiple appearances on national media shows throughout the coronavirus pandemic. First, when JBSA-Lackland hosted different cohorts of evacuees from Wuhan and cruise ships, then when the city was seeing success in flattening the curve as the virus ravaged other parts of the country. The tables have turned over the last month as San Antonio’s COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are surging at a “frightening” rate.

    Nirenberg described the San Antonio situation on CNN Tonight as “very dire.” San Antonio has refrigerated trucks on stand by for the deceased, just as New York City did when funeral homes and morgues ran out of space. He said the city is moving toward the “last line of defense” by readying field hospitals.

    Nirenberg told Lemon the point of the months-long shutdowns “seems to be lost” as local healthcare systems are now under severe stress. The latest surveillance reports the percentage of available staffed beds is 10 percent.
