Many hotels currently house guests who are either quarantined or experiencing mild coronavirus symptoms, and, as a result, there can be very unfortunate consequences.
Three people died over the weekend at a single Hilton affiliated hotel, Hilton Garden Inn New York Times Square South, in New YorkCity that was used to house recovering Covid-19 patients.

Here’s an excerpt from the Newsweek (access their piece here):
Two men, aged 42 and 70, were found dead in rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn on West 37th Street in Manhattan on Saturday, a spokesperson for the New York Police Department told Newsweek. A 64-year-old man was found dead in a room on Sunday.
The police spokesperson said the three deaths were unrelated and were not deemed suspicious.They have been referred to the Medical Examiner, who will determine the cause of death for the three men, the spokesperson added.
The police spokesperson added that the hotel is under a contract with NYC Emergency Management to house individuals who have been released from city hospitals after testing positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
This is an awful development for these released patients, all the employees at this Hilton Garden Inn hotel that had to deal not only one but with three tragedies over a single weekend, and obviously for the loved ones of these deceased.
