Governor Asks Upstate: Send Ventilators To NYC

GOVERNOR’S BRIEFING, FRIDAY, 4/3

Governor Asks Upstate:

Send Ventilators To NYC

ALBANY – Governor Cuomo is issuing an executive order allowing the state to redistribute ventilators and personal protective equipment, or PPE, from institutions that don’t currently need them and redeploy the equipment to other hospitals with the highest need.

“I’m not going to get into a situation where we’re running out of ventilators and people are dying because there are no ventilators but there are hospitals in other parts of the state that have ventilators that they’re not using,” he said a today’s briefing.  “I’m just not going to allow us to go there. I think it would be wholly irresponsible.”

Managing Editor Libby Cudmore and photographer Ian Austin have the exclusive report from “Atropia,” the fictional country where the 403rd were tasked with retrieving items as unrest loomed.
