The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), commonly known as COVID-19, has resulted in severe resource shortages in the areas that have become hot spots. A leading area of concern has been hospital bed and intensive care unit bed availability that would leave hospitals unable to treat the most severe cases and which would result in unnecessary additional loss of life. Here, we present a model based on prediction of cases by state to propose resource allocation to alleviate hospital bed shortages.
