DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - With Coronavirus fears widening, Dallas County has secured a 250-bed mobile hospital and now the only questions are where to put it and when it will be ready.

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins made the announcement yesterday and it's believed the temporary hospital will be the first of its kind in Texas.

Jenkins also says the old Parkland Hospital campus will be re-opened, not as a hospital, but as a location for quarantines.
