New York Faces A Desperate Situation As COVID-19 Cases Top 25000

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo Holds Daily News Conference Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

At his daily briefing on COVID-19 in the state, New York Gov.Andrew Cuomo announced that there have been 4,790 new cases reported, bringing the state's total to 25,665, 10 times more than any other state. "The State can not do this alone, and the blunt truth is we need more ventilators and healthcare equipment fast, and we need the federal government to actually use the Defense Production Act to get private manufacturers to help build this critical equipment".

"I understand the federal government's point that many companies have come forward and said we want to help, and General Motors and Ford and people are willing to get into the ventilator business".

There are now more than 50,000 cases of the virus in the United States and more than 600 people have died.

In preparation for the increase, several field hospitals are being set up in several New York City boroughs and the suburbs.

The increased rate led Cuomo to project that the worst could hit in as little as two to three weeks. The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in MI have continued to rise, jumping from 549 on Friday to 1,328 by Monday.

Trump said he was not blaming Cuomo, however.

Cuomo has reiterated the state's hospital bed capacity is approximately 53,000, and he has been working with the federal government to supplement that number.

In New York state, 25,665 cases of coronavirus were confirmed as of Tuesday morning, with 210 deaths - far higher numbers that elsewhere in the U.S. - as 14,776 cases and 131 fatalities were concentrated in New York City alone.

Citizens had been ordered to stay inside due to coronavirus and banned from being in groups numbering more than five people. The interior minister, Davor Božinović, said the situation was complicated by the virus-related measures.

President Donald Trump shared a shocking accusation on air against NY governor Andrew Cuomo Tuesday that turned out to be a headline pulled straight from rightwing conspiracy site Gateway Pundit. "We are going to fight every way we can to save every life that we can because that's what, I think, it means to be an American".

"My mother is not expendable and your mother is not expendable and our brothers and sisters are not expendable", he said. He said that amounts to a death sentence to ailing New Yorkers.

"We're looking at an apex in 14 days", he said.

"This is going to get much worse before it gets better", he said. "So he had a chance to buy, in 2015, 16,000 ventilators at a very low price and he turned it down, I'm not blaming him or anything else but he shouldn't be talking about us".

"You can't call off the best weapon we have, which is social isolation, even out of economic desperation, unless you're willing to be responsible for a mountain of deaths", Arthur Caplan, founding head of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU School of Medicine, told The New York Times. "Can't we try to put people's lives first for at least a month?"

"If you ask the American people to choose between public health and the economy, then it's no contest".

He said there were some who thought that "if we go on too long with the economy shut down, the human toll for that could be greater than the risk of the virus". But he said there would need to be a regional or national co-ordinator of medical products "to make sure that the goods needed are where they need to be".
