PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Medical personnel from the Army Reserve join Temple University Hospital in the fight against COVID-19. The Urban Augmentation Medical Task Force has arrived to support Temple health care workers.

A Temple nurse says the Army has jumped right in to help them care for COVID-19 patients.

“We’re always asking for help. We’ve been saying we need more people, we need help and then they notified us that the reserves were coming. I was like wow this is really cool. It’s a huge help as far as relief on patient load,” nurse Jeremy Buck said.

FEMA is helping to make this much-welcomed support possible.
