Can Medical Facilities Handle Inauguration Crowds?

Health experts are warning that inaugural crowds could push medical facilities beyond their limits.
Hospitals in the D.C. area expect to see up to 60,000 patients during the four-day inaugural festivities, according to the Washington Examiner, which is about double the number of patients who would normally be treated.
The projection does not take into account a possible catastrophe or outbreak of an illness such as the flu.
Officials are still working out details of a plan to ensure that ambulances can make their way around large crowds and closed roads.
