Cuomo uses crisis to stockpile medical supplies

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Governor Andrew Cuomo failed to stockpile medical supplies for his state back in 2015 when he was advised that New York did not have enough ventilators in a pandemic. Back then, the ventilators would have cost a little over half a billion dollars out of a budget well in excess of $150 billion dollars. Now that there is a pandemic, Cuomo is using the crisis to make up for his dereliction of duty, getting the federal government to pay for something that New York should have paid for years ago.

Day after day, Cuomo has been demanding that the federal government send more ventilators, saying they don’t have enough. When asked if he was stockpiling the ventilators, he said of course, because the hospitals don’t need them yet. Cuomo is planning for the worst case scenario, 30,000 people needing ventilators at the same time. That sounds reasonable, but Cuomo has been saying repeatedly that the hospitals do not have enough ventilators now.

Dr. Deborah Birx debunks the 60-70% number

Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force,  reassured New Yorkers and Americans that our health care system is adequate to the task and the country is working overtime to supply what is needed. She also said that there is no model that they are working with that shows 60% to 70% of Americans infected with the coronavirus.

New Yorkers flee the city

Meanwhile, New York City residents have been fleeing the city and possibly spreading the virus to other parts of New York and other states. Rhode Island has told New Yorkers to stay away.

Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, warned those fleeing NYC to quarantine themselves for 14 days after arriving in a new place to avoid spreading the virus.

To everyone who has left New York over the last few days, because of the rate of the number of cases, you may have been exposed before you left New York. Everybody who was in New York should be self-quarantining for the next 14 days to ensure the virus doesn’t spread to others, no matter where they have gone — whether it’s Florida, North Carolina, or out to far reaches of Long Island.”

Dr. Birx appeals to New Yorkers that have left NYC to self-quarantine. Watch:
