Andrew Cuomo: $2 trillion congressional deal would be 'terrible' for NY

"Given the uncertainty around COVID-19, we understand that people are trying to find new ways to prevent or treat this virus, but self-medicating is not the way to do so", said Dr. Daniel Brooks, the medical director of the Banner Poison and Drug Information Center. "You want a less dense area, so pilot closing streets to cars, opening streets to pedestrians", Cuomo said, adding that the plan is only possible at the moment because there is far less traffic than normal.

Trump appeared to be dramatizing a report from a New York Department of Health task force in 2015 which predicted that, if faced with a pandemic like the 1918 Spanish flu, New York would run into a ventilator shortage to the tune of 15,000.

Failed 2016 president prospect Hillary Clinton has actually been happily utilizing the coronavirus to slam President Donald Trump since it started.

The tone was a considerable change from Tuesday, when Cuomo had fiercely criticized the federal government's response to the pandemic and balked at Trump's suggestion that restarting the economy superseded public health concerns.

"We can tell New Yorkers that help is on the way", said Schumer.

At Elmhurst Hospital Centre, which serves about 1 million people in New York's Queens borough, scores of people, most wearing surgical masks, queued up on Wednesday to be tested at a special tent set up outside.

The percentage of patients requiring hospital care decreased down to 12 percent of the overall cases, with 3 percent of those in intensive care units. "That is a bad combination of facts".

"I will take personal responsibility for transporting the 20,000 ventilators anywhere in this country that they want, once we are passed our apex", Cuomo said.

Jim Hackett-the CEO of the Ford Motor Company-said this week he would answer the call to help. It needs tens of thousands more.


"We're not slowing it, and it is accelerating on its own", Cuomo said. "Not to exercise that power is inexplicable to me".

"That is a dramatic increase in the rate of infection", the governor said.

"FEMA is sending us 400 ventilators". There have also been a confirmed 25,000 cases, with state officials warning of an impending crisis which will soon rapidly spread across the country.

The crux of her criticism was formed after President Trump expressed his desire for Americans to go back to work sooner than later.

"It has been a challenge, but we are willing to make it work to ensure that the virus doesn't spread", Thompson said. "You're missing the magnitude of the problem". The state says at least 210 people have died from COVID-19.

NY is rapidly becoming the new epicentre of the coronavirus pandemic, with the rise of infections accelerating twice as fast as previously predicted in the state and threatening to swamp the centre of global finance even as its hospitals face shortages of critical medical equipment. "It's just a matter of time". He said that the number of confirmed infections in Westchester County, the origin of New York's outbreak, had "dramatically slowed" following a two-week containment. Because this is a respiratory illness and people need more ventilation than usual. "We need them in New York NOW", he tweeted. They've been studying projections from China, South Korea, Italy, places all across this country.

At least 30,800 people have tested positive for the virus in New York state and more than 17,800 in New York City alone. "Today, no hospital, no nurse, no doctor can say, legitimately 'I don't have protective equipment, '" he said.

Coronavirus patients are not the only ones who would be impacted by a breakdown in the hospital system.

"We'll only do it if it's good", Trump said, adding that the reopening could be limited to a "portion" of the nation.
