    Just received word from an ICU doctor at a small NY hospital: They are officially out of ventilators and are now double venting patients with COVID (using the same ventilator for 2 infected patients). Do everything possible to avoid infection. PLEASE ISOLATE as best you can.

    The phrase is explained in the parenthetical remark that follows it: using the same ventilator for 2 infected patients.
