Firefighters gave medical workers in Queens a special show of support on April 3, showing up with hand-written signs and several trucks to thank them for treating coronavirus (COVID-19) patients in the city.
“To all the healthcare workers, from the FDNY, we want to thank you for your service,” said one firefighter, his voice amplified.
Two other firefighters held up a hand-made sign which read “THANK YOU YOU’RE OUR HEROES.”
Queens has been the borough worst hit by the city’s COVID-19 outbreak, and Elmhurst Hospital has been ground zero for the treatment of patients in the area.
As of the morning of April 4, over 59,000 confirmed positive cases had been recorded in New York City, including at least 1,905 deaths tied to the virus. Of those cases, a third were recorded in Queens, while at least 590 deaths have occurred in the borough — the most of any county in the State. Credit: @amilienimages via Storyful
