NEW YORK (AP) — With coronavirus deaths surging in New York, the governor announced Friday he will use his authority to seize ventilators and protective gear from private hospitals and companies that aren’t using them, complaining that states are competing against each other for vital equipment in eBay-like bidding wars.
“If they want to sue me for borrowing their excess ventilators to save lives, let them sue me,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. He added that he will eventually return the equipment or compensate the owners.
The executive order he said he would sign represents one of the most aggressive efforts yet in the U.S. to deal with the kind of critical shortages around the world that authorities say have caused health care workers to fall sick and forced doctors in Europe to make life-or-death decisions about which patients get a breathing machine.
So now because New York decided to shun the CDC recommendation in 2015 to buy 16,000 ventilators to have for a pandemic the governor will steal from privately owned hospitals?
The whole country is suffering because of this.
Where I live has a population density of 32 people per square mile yet we are being treated the same as New York. The area I live is poor. A waitress not working for one week is bankrupt. I’m sure its the same all over.
