CHA has submitted a letter to the editor (unpublished as of today) to The Wall Street Journal correcting misinformation in a recent story on the transfer of more than 600 COVID-19 patients from Imperial County to hospitals in other parts of the state.  

The story, which references a handful of emails to characterize a weeks-long crisis, erroneously captured California hospitals’ response to an extraordinary disease outbreak in a remote border county and paints an incomplete and unbalanced description.
