New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo thanks the Chinese government for sending 1,000 donated ventilators to his state, highlighting the extreme measures leaders are taking to secure lifesaving devices during the coronavirus pandemic.
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York governor said Saturday the Chinese government was facilitating a shipment of 1,000 donated ventilators to his state, highlighting the extreme measures leaders are taking in what has become a cutthroat scramble to independently secure enough lifesaving devices during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a sign of the disorganized response to the global crisis, Gov. Andrew Cuomo praised the Chinese government for its help in securing the shipment of the breathing machines that was scheduled to arrive at Kennedy Airport on Saturday, while acknowledging that the U.S. government’s stockpile of medical supplies would fall drastically short.
“We’re all in the same battle here,” Cuomo said, noting that the state of Oregon also volunteered to send 140 ventilators to New York. “And the battle is stopping the spread of the virus.”The rush to secure supplies has prompted intense squabbling between the states and federal government at a moment the nation is facing one of its gravest emergencies. Leaders like Cuomo have been forced to go outside normal channels and work with authoritarian governments and private companies.
Trump said states are making inflated requests for medical supplies when the need isn’t there and suggested he had a hand in the ventilator shipment arriving from China to New York. Trump also said he’d like to hear a more resounding “thank you” from Cuomo for providing medical supplies and helping quickly to add hospital capacity. Cuomo acknowledged he asked the White House and others for help negotiating the ventilators.
“We have given the governor of New York more than anybody has ever been given in a long time,” Trump told reporters in Washington.While the state of Massachusetts used the New England Patriots’ team plane to pick up over a million masks from China, Russia has also sent medical equipment to the U.S. Meanwhile, Trump has said he’d prevent the export of N95 protective masks to Canada and other nations, prompting a rebuke from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who said his country won’t bring retaliatory measures as it continues to ship gloves and testing kits to the U.S.
The number of people infected in the U.S. has exceeded 300,000, with the death toll climbing past 8,400; more than 3,500 of those deaths are in New York state, including more than 1,900 in New York City. In addition to getting ventilators from China and Oregon, Cuomo ordered private hospitals in the state to redistribute breathing machines to those most in need.
“I want this all to be over,” Cuomo said, noting that while it’s been roughly 30 days since the state’s first case, “it feels like an entire lifetime.”Trump said the federal government is setting up a 2,500-bed field hospital at New York’s Javits Convention Center that will be staffed by the military. He said similar hospital projects are being built in Louisiana and Dallas.
“There will be a lot of death, unfortunately, but a lot less death than if this wasn’t done,” Trump said. He later added that the federal government is “a backup ... the greatest backup that ever existed for the states.”As the number of people infected has grown to more than 1.1 million worldwide, health care systems are straining under the surge of patients. In China, air raid sirens sounded across the country Saturday and flags flew at half staff in tribute to victims of the coronavirus pandemic, including the health care “martyrs” who have died fighting to save others.
With the highest number of infections in Europe and their hospitals overwhelmed, Spain and Italy struggled to protect medical staff on the front lines, while 17 medics in Egypt’s main cancer hospital tested positive for the virus.Italy and Spain, with combined deaths of more than 25,000 and nearly a quarter-million infections, have reported a high percentage of infections among health care workers.
Carlo Palermo, head of Italy’s hospital doctors’ union, fought tears as he told reporters in Rome of the physical risks and psychological trauma the outbreak is causing, noting reports that two nurses had killed themselves.“It’s a indescribable condition of stress. Unbearable,” he said.
Overall, new infections continued to slow their once-exponential pace in Italy, with 4,805 new cases registered Saturday that brought the country’s official count to 124,632. The death toll continued to mount, with 681 new victims bringing the world’s highest toll to 15,362.
In France, 7,560 people have died of coronavirus-related issues including at least 2,028 in nursing homes, health director Jerome Salomon said. More than 440 of the overall deaths happened in the last 24 hours.In the U.S., the outbreak is deepening in other areas beyond New York. More than 400 people have died in Louisiana, and state authorities have been sprinting to find ventilators similar to New York. Michigan has more than 14,000 infections and 500 deaths, with Detroit being the state’s epicenter.
With the arrival of the weekend and spring weather, many Americans struggled to adhere to social distancing and stay-at-home orders that cover most of the country. The sheriff in San Diego issued about two dozen citations to people, saying violators were breaking the rules by having picnics near the beach.
And officials from the major sports leagues had a phone call with Trump about resuming competition. Asked if he thought the NFL season would start on time in September with fans in the stands, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, said: “I’m not anticipating that happening in this state.”
In China, where the coronavirus was first detected in December, authorities have cautiously lifted restrictions amid dropping numbers of infections. On Sunday the government reported just 30 new coronavirus cases, including 25 people who had arrived from overseas. The other five were in the southern province of Guangdong, which borders Hong Kong. There were three new deaths for an official total of 3,329.
Spain’s Health Ministry reported 18,324 infected health workers as of Saturday, representing 15% of the total number of infections in the country.As Spain completes its third week in a state of emergency, there were signs the number of new infections were slowing. But they were still high, with 7,026 new cases reported overnight Saturday and 809 deaths.
Worldwide, confirmed infections rose past 1.1 million and deaths exceeded 63,000, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. Experts say both greatly under-count the true number of victims because of lack of testing, mild cases that were missed and governments that are underplaying the crisis.
At the same time, more than 233,000 people have recovered from the virus, which causes mild to moderate symptoms such as fever and cough in most patients, who recover within a few weeks. But for some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.

During a party i spilled red wine on the host's white carpet. Initially I ignored the spill and didn't even alert the host. Only later I told the host cuz the carpet was permanently red. And i gave the host a mr clean magic eraser. I now expect the host to thank me for helping. China helping more than jared at the white house
It's the least they could do Cuomo is an idiot. Throwing toys out the cot. Ordering masks from China who infected everyone. I just wonder,if the virus started here,what will the racist people say? China thinks she has humbled the world by donating to the Earth's strongest state vet2980 Wow, a national government providing lifesaving equipment to a United States State. Imagine.
Beware the politic of generosity. Do they work? China has sent tons of equipment and tests that don’t work to other countries. Oh wait! He won’t know cause they have all been added to the “stockpile.” smh traitors sheesh idiots COVIDIOT StayAtHome awakeamerica2020 conventionofstates ReopenAmerica
Unless the Feds intercept the shipment. YEP, Cuomo can praise Lyyin' CHINA to high heaven for assistance, but not TRUMP Admin. WHY? You forgot to mention that Trump arranged this. Do better. Is this guy serious Did he thank them for concealing COVID19 for months? What a disgrace Thank You China. china Why do we continue to trust China to do the ‘right’ thing?
DSladeNews Trojan horse? Do you have today work? Has the equipment been tested for covid-19 and before use? I myself have unanswered questions. Trump Pompeo give billions of dollars away in aid and then what a few million dollars coming back into the country 🤔 so sad to see the comments. a human being should know what gratitude is.
Check those ventilators. It's not a donation. It's a purchase. That's expensive Democrats and the Chinese are one in the same The western (capitalist) propaganda against China (communism) doesn't really matter when the truth stares us in the face! I’m starting to think Cuomo is a drama queen. Tainted probably
realDonaldTrump Mike_Pence ICYMI Surely China should have followed President Trumpster’s lead, and kept all the respirators for themselves! The Trump administration will confiscate it. They are doing it every where Inflation of ventilators w/o experienced critical care staff and shrinking criticalcare staff on suicide mission w/o appropriate biosafety level.Lockdown which leads to shortages of required drugs not only for ICUs but also millions of other patients. Panic Politicians domino
LadyLakeMusic 🤔☣️🇨🇳 Someone kill your whole family and you have thank them for giving you the money to born the corpse , WOW Pete Hoekstra (US Ambassador in the Netherlands) will not be pleased. He called upon the Dutch not to turn to China for help. is this statement true? This is a dereliction of duty. The governor is failing the people of New York AGAIN. Release the medicine, Gov. Cuomo and let New Yorkers and their doctors decide! For some patients stricken with the coronavirus, this could be a matter of life and death.
NYGovCuomo, Has taken advatage of this situation to make himself look like something his is not. The people of the US could care less about you and your brother playing funzies on tv every day, it's a waste of air time. Thanking China is a smack in the facea to the American's. But did he thank realDonaldTrump or VP? Or the Army Corps of Engineers? What a complete rude, utterly ungrateful piece of garbage. He built this problem and everyone has run around helping him and WHO does he show appreciate for? Freaking C H I N A who sent this plague here!
They sent the Philippines some COVID Test kits, and it didn't work 99 percent. Trump Admin tells Governors to find their own,stuff.. Then out bids the States. Now Trump Admin are doing the same thing to our Allies... Who is Trump working for? He took n oath to protect ALL CITIZENS.. He hasn't lived up to his oath of office..
And in the meantime U.S is blocking medical aid to multiple nations. People are beginning to see past the propaganda. Two of the worlds largest tech manufacturing companies have enormous factories in China. Apple and HP. If they cant produce, in China, thousands of ventilators every week then they are not trying. Don't thank China for a mere 1000. Should be 100,000.
Trump was trying to take credit Isn't Elon Musk, GM and Ford all making ventilators Why the F would you buy Chinese made ventilators? New York already has 1500 unused ventilators waiting in storage. They are at this point hording in case they may need them in the future while other areas that could use them now go without. There are other people in this country besides New Yorkers!
Good but a Chinese P R stunt Problem being that he not smart enough to check to see if they are contaminated with viruses. They better check them for viruses and make sure they're in working order. Hasn’t China done enough damage? From veedioes And speeches i have seeing, cuomo is a leader who really cares population lives. Very sad to see people struggle and die. But as long as seeing what America's politician said and did. It's hard to maintain sympathy.
Governor Andrew coumo when I was little in the late 60s they would kids in oxygen tents to not give other kids my pneumonia and one time chicken pics I had both at the same time. Why can't we do this to keep nurses better protected They’re probably defective Why does NY incorporate hydrochloroquine and Z-pack into treatment - once a patient goes on respiratory it’s very hard to get them off! Try the drugs!
The claim: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo admitted the state has thousands of ventilators in stockpile, despite requesting more from the federal government. I doubt the quality 😏 What a joke 1000呼吸机，救命神器！ Only fair, as they are largely responsible. Did Cuomo also thank China for hiding the outbreak as thousands of Chinese flew to Nee York in December and January infecting NYC?
Thank you china for spreading the disease all over the world Thanking China for ventilators is like thanking an arsonist that brought a fire extinguisher. When they shut down their disgusting, vile wet markets, stop locking up Muslims & lying about the virus, stealing our tech, then we can talk. ChinaVirus fuckchina Batsoup wetmarket
🌍🌍🌍Hydroxychloroquine Cuomo failed to mention the masks were donated by an American & shipped from China. When will the NY bastard start telling the whole story. What a freaking poor excuse of a leader. Here's hoping they actually work this time WajahatAli TrumpLiesChinaSupplies TrumpLiesChinaSupplies TrumpLiesAmericansDie TrumpPandemic TrumpIsKillingAmericans TrumpIsTheWORSTPresidentEVER
Rats are spreading it in NY NYGovCuomo Mask all COPS NOW. Six axis degree of freedom Human Dispersible Helically Aerodynamic Spherical Covid 19 Pathegon Cluster Morphed Aerosol Droplet that really can traverse distances much greater than 6 feet. blurtnobrain See? The national government can get it done. Just not *our* national government.
This is like when Hugo Chavez supplied four out of five of New York’s boroughs with Energy just to jab at Bush What other stuff are they sending our way? Do not trust the Chinese they are the masters of FAKE. As Cuomo hordes ventilators, just in case Well, the fail rate will likely be equivalent to the trinkets in a 4th grader’s birthday gift bag so it will be an equivalent of about 300. But in all seriousness, hope they work for folks who need it.
Don't thank them too fast, australia rejected 1 million faulty masks they sent us Is he going to share them with other states when they need them? They caused this with their corruption, incompetence and failed communist system. That you are thanking them is a disgrace. It’s like thanking a guy who kicks you in the balls after he recommends a good doctor. WuhanCoronaVirus.
Wonder if they will top 40% detection rate. Don't have high hopes for this one. Did he pull the ones out of stockpile from our own country? How many ventilators in Cuomo’s stockpile now? The country of New York. Next he will be thanking them for sending the virus. What is wrong with that man. The Chinese govt did not send the ventilators. A businessman of Chinese nationality did. The Chinese Govt didn’t stop the shipment.
Thank you China! Make sure you tell these racist it's for all ppl not just Europeans. So the Trump administration sells the ones in storage and New York has to buy them back Let me fix it for you- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo thanks the Chinese government for sending 1,000 donated ventilators to his state, highlighting how horrifically inept and incompetent the Trump Administration is. TrumpGenocide Cuomo MichiganStrong
They need to pay reparations and fix the problems that led to SARS and Covid19. Unfuckingbelievable!!! Thanking the enemy. Figures a Democrat would do that. The Wuhan misrepresentation of facts in Dec 2019, knowingly or inadvertently, is a separate issue and will go through an investigation someday when it's all over. But this life-saving donation is a nice gesture and certainly deserves thanks.
Cuomo can sell his soul to anyone, anytime, BUT he will Never sell American soul ! Okay... thank you China for killing half of the world... and making money while doing it ... ... boycottchina boycottmadeinchina ChinaVirus ChinaLiedPeopleDied dirtychinese punishchina lockdownchina China has stopped the companies on its soil from exporting medical kits and medicines and hoarding all of them. They donate medical kits forcefully to all their hositile nations even though you are ready to pay. This is to showcase their narrative in main land China as superpower
That's once in a lifetime rare donation. 弱小和无知不是生存的障碍，傲慢才是 PDChina Should have sent those ventillator sooner NewYorkCity has over 250,000 Chinese nationals maybe more If you count the ones here in the USA illegally Covid19 guys,are you sure the ventilator works in good condition and reliable? Do u know the cost of that? Communist lied to the world and Chinese people about the virus. Selling rubbish facilities to the other countries ChineseVirus ChinaLiedPeopleDie WHOLiedPeopleDied chinazi
评论里的🐸🐸、🍌人又开始带节奏啦，越抹黑，中国愈发强大，单细胞生物们哭哭哦。 Can’t wait until next week when they send the vaccine over. L5d Its no Chinese government , it’s alibaba foundation do it No thanks to Trump. Sadiq_Cyrus Ok now Yes, China needs to repay more to Americans. 1,000 ventilators FROM CHINA! WHAT CAN GO WRONG? PROBABLY CONTAMINATED WITH CORONAVIRUS!
The US or Canada can't make their own ..time to bring manufacturing back and stop getting junk from China Trojan horses Thank you Hitler for the virus and his ventilator They are sending with more virus dumbo🤣 Did he thank CCPVirus as well? CommunistChina and XiJinping creators and spreaders of WuhanVirus
The great Heroes of China are coming to save the day! a couple of piddly ventilators isn't going to change the fact that they owe us trillions of dollars. Do they work? Awesome 💙💙💙 When New Yorkers can say Thank You Xi Jin Ping rather Thank You Trump Baligubadle1 Maybe if NYGovCuomo would allow the citizens of New York to have access to HCQ they wouldn't need all these ventilators. No wonder New Yorkers are fleeing to other states. If my Governor kept me and my loved ones from a drug offering hope, I would be livid.
At the behest of the President’s connections with two business friends, China delivers ventilators to NY First China export deadly ChineseVirus19 to World. Thousands r dead, Millions accross the countries r suffering, living in panic n stressed, world economy is on downfall, recession is looming over, job cuts/pay cuts and then China acts like savior of the world, Worst of an EVIL.
This is how it is supposed to work. Yes, I know the Chinese govt. has an agenda. So does ours. No good parent with a dying child would turn down help, regardless of the source. I hope they get the extended warranty Send them back. Good for NY. It's a shame our own federal government can't competently assist the states on a consistent basis. The buck stop with Trump even as he rates his response as a 10/10 (delusional).
thank them for the COVID19 as well. but can you actually thank someone who helped you after inflicting the pain in the first place ? say, someone who broke your leg and then gave you a stick to stand on ? COVID19 CCPVirus He shouldn’t have accepted, but did he really have a choice, though? Given the fact that every state scrambles to secure supplies regardless of others, it comes as no surprise to me.
Communist dw BBC china nytimes Natural Brothers do not permit division to start conflict. Human being: brothers. In middle of this sad crisis is a Real hope to mankind a new way to increase the friendly relationship between Nations with power to defeat to Global Organized Corruption. Contaminated don’t trust China they tried to kill the world
Cuomo keeps sucking off Communist China---the Democrats are all about communism---wouldn't surprise me if they were in on the release of this virus to push this communist agenda they have The Federal Government didn't seize that shipment too? Cue vile comments from American racists 😷 Where are the 30,000 you just said you had in warehouses
Cuomo blocked the drs from prescribing hydroxycloroquine. All he is looking for is death. The man needs therapy Hopefully they are not defective like the test kits and n95s they sent other countries 🤷🏻♀️ What a deal... maybe Covid-19 is pre-installed... And Canada will still supply 3M with the cedar fibre needed for your masks, even though you won't give us any.
At least he's not using prison labor again. Our govt sent them add in Jan or Feb. You better check and make sure they are clean ! Seems like Trump was right all along, the Chinese leader is a great guy and it's a pleasure doing business with him.... Better make sure they work. The stuff they sent to Spain (tests) were only 30% accurate.
Trump via Putin’s endgame? Start applauding the autocratic dictators that realDonaldTrump empowered and enabled? Not easy to prove wrong. And all will be newly broken :D Did he also THANK them for sending us this virus and lying about it? WTF. Seriously? Unbelievable the best country in the world beggin for ventilators because our federal government can't get his shit together. 😡😡😡🤬
🖕 China most likely sent ventilators made by an American owned company in China. As for Trump not sending supplies to Canada but Canada sending the US things is common sense. New York is the front lines an epicenter. Fight the virus there so you dont have to as much there. Anything from Rusher or Chiner is a Propoganda Victory for them. Will N Korea be next sending 'Night Soil 'to Fat Donny?
If they're of the same quality of the 'masks' and 'tests' they've been sending out then I hope they won't need to be used by anybody. Trump and GOP are purposively murdering New Yorkers. We know that for fact. It’s a shame our Federal government is’nt helping. In the face of a national pandemic, Trump has expertly deployed the legendary, 'Trump Chaos' management style that has been a hallmark of every business he has attempted. They have all failed. This time, the result is not bankruptcy, but thousands of dead Americans
Did he check the warehouse to find the ones missing, and did he just thank CHINA? They're going to break within the 1st half hour. Cuomo sucks off the Communists that started this Trump: but I’m 1 on Facebook and have 12M tv viewers per coronavirus press conferences. Isn’t that great! People love ME! Good luck on these made in China PPE
So Elon musk couldn’t hook you up? China, a country whose government thinks its stockpile should be used to help US states during a pandemic. Description of National Stockpile Changed to Align With Jared Kushner’s Claim It’s Not for States Thank God for China rn While the healthcare system based on capitalism fails when it is needed most... TrumpLiesAmericansDie
They were probably ours anyway since Pompeo & Trump sent China 18tons of supplies Oh. Thank you so much China. The price the world pays for having China as their manufacturing base. 🤮 About time And orange buffoon tried to take credit Can we trust anything from them anymore? Just asking because I am not sure how this all works but seems funny we are getting stuff from them Makes me nervous 😬
Oh, they're going to be super-efficient and virus-free right? Trump sent Cuomo thousands ventilators and they just sat in a warehouse. An interview showed that Kraft, owner of Patriots, helped to engineer this highly complex and cooperative feat to bring ventilators to Mass. and NY via a private plane with 'PATRIOTS' painted on its body.
Has he checked to see if the Chinese ventilators work? Check the masks for more virus. The Chinese government are godless murderers. Because our federal government is run by incompetent sociopaths. Covid TrumpPressConf Thank you China China-3 Trump-0 How low have we gone Over 600 dead yesterday. We have to ask other countries for help. Private citizens are trying to help: our President is a total disgrace.
It’s the least they could do. $20 days THEY DONT WORK How generous! Give them virus and ventilators! THANK YOU CHINESE GOVERNMENT. BEST WAY TO GET THEM TO NEW YORK..... Colorado need some too. Please help us. Not accurate! Not that I'm complaining, but this *will* be a news item when he runs for President. I'm not totally sure I mind.
You forgot 'DUE TO TRUMP ASKING HIS FRIENDS' from your biased article title. Trump has given you so much no thanks? Don't let Trump touch them Yes, thank the Chinese & malign your President you goofball. What'd ya do with the 1000 vents you were hoarding in your warehouse because.......none of the hospitals needed them! Oh yes.... Thank you Chinese Communist Party! I say FU CCP! Set your people free!
America can't make its own ventilators and has to pay China, the source of the virus. I thank God for this pandemic. Some people may feel the horror of wars Now can you take back this virus? A big thank you to China. DIDN'T THE VIRUS COME FROM CHINA? Let's hope they work. Thank you Chinese government! Tainted w/ rona sauce.
Well as much as I don't like Cuomo, need to do anything and everything to save lives right now! Disinfect them thoroughly Watch the numbers shoot up even higher
