CBS News was caught using footage from an Italian hospital while trying to depict the coronavirus conditions in New York City last week.

On March 22, SKY News showed footage of a hospital in Bergamo, Italy, the city that has been hit hardest by COVID-19 in that country. On March 25, CBS News used that same video footage while describing the condtions on the ground in New York City with a headline that read, "America's Epicenter: New York Now Accounts For More Than Half Of New U.S. Cases."
