96 hospitals in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania metropolitan area, This metro area includes Camden, N.J., and Wilmington, Del. With a population of approximately 6 million.
If each hospital has one ebola patient in the ER, every hospital will be shut down. In my county that is only two patients. Between me and Philly there are only a hand full of other hospitals not more than 10.
Theoretically 96 ebola patients could close every hospital to all other medical emergencies for 6,000,000 people.
