Can doctors and nurses treat ill COVID-19 patients in their homes instead of overwhelming the hospitals?
So that those whom require surgery are treated at hospitals.

No, bcuz the level of care they need. Here in Texas, they've already been sending all but the sickest patients home, but know that many of them will DIE at home. Most hospitals are at 85% capacity & they simply cannot take more patients. There are no surgeries being performed unless they're absolutely critical. Doctors are forced to triage patients, choosing who gets a bed & who doesn't-- meaning they're picking who survives and who won't.

Yes, but that would take a lot more resources, more doctors and nurses than we have. By the way, since it's the subject of the verb "require," "who" is the proper relative pronoun, not "whom."

No, they usually require oxygen, constant monitoring, and perhaps intubation. Which means a full hospital bed and other equipment. None of which can be done at home.
