Cuomo slams $2T stimulus package as 'terrible' for NY

A nearly empty 42nd Street in New York City

The rate of hospitalisations in NY has slowed in recent days, Cuomo said, with numbers he called "almost too good to be true".

The Governor said the state has managed to buy 7,000 ventilators but is still short 30,000 of the machines, and the federal government was giving him just 400 more.

At a Fox News telephone town hall later in the day, Mr. Trump argued that Mr. Cuomo should have bought ventilators five years ago in anticipation of a potential pandemic.

"God bless them - 40,000 people have signed up as a surge health care force", Cuomo said. But he said the state does not have enough for the expected need in a few weeks, when the virus peaks. Only China (81,218) and Italy (69,176) have seen more cases. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., have widely different views on the federal bailout package approved by Congress. Cuomo said the measure would not give NY enough money to make up for the widening multibillion-dollar budget gap.

"We are enduring a great national trial", Trump said.

And while Trump has said the trial "is looking very, very good" and that chloroquine, a drug used to treat and prevent malaria, could be a "game changer", Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top expert on infectious diseases, continued to downplay the president's statements during Tuesday evening's press conference.

"It is not even a question as to whether we will need more", Breed said.

As of Wednesday, March 25, there have been 445,753 confirmed cases of COVID-19 worldwide, which resulted to 19,767 deaths. Because this is a respiratory illness and people need more ventilation than usual.

"The group was created to help the state with hard medical/law questions around ... pandemic and disaster response", among other topics, he said via email. "But the theory is given the density that we're dealing with, it spreads very quickly, but if you reduce the density you can reduce the spread very quickly", he said.

Fighting social density is the latest focus for the state, which announced on Wednesday that confirmed cases have risen to 30,811 and deaths from coronavirus have topped 200.

Democrats, including Governor Cuomo, have criticized Trump, a Republican, for suggesting he would reopen the nation's economy by mid-April.

Civil fines will be issued to non-compliant businesses, but not individuals, Cuomo said. The sweeping orders, unprecedented in their breadth and depth, encompass about half the nation's population.

Zucker argued that it's important to follow CDC guidelines on social distancing whether in NY or elsewhere, but offered a mixed message when asked about the White House's guidance on recent NY visitors self-quarantining for two weeks.

Even before states began adopting those measures last week, the pandemic paralysed parts of the U.S. economy and upended daily life as schools and colleges closed and workplaces shuttered voluntarily or under local government orders.

According to the 2015 report, hospitals would rely on "triage committees", or teams of doctors, to choose which patients would receive ventilator treatment during a shortage, weighing which patients were most at risk and which were most likely to survive treatment.

"And we have a lot of digital entertainment that allows us to make this much more bearable". "We're doing our best to keep our students engaged in learning, monitor and enrich our own kids' learning, while maintaining our own sanity during this challenging time".
