New York To Share Equipment, Reassign Medical Staff As Needed

Governor Andrew Cuomo says New York will redistribute medical equipment to parts of the state that now need the most assistance. He also says the state still needs federal help.   

Cuomo says if one part of the state needs help, the rest of the state will help share ventilators and workers.

“When Downstate New York needed help, Upstate New York was there. If Upstate New York needs help, or Western New York needs help, or Central New York or the North Country needs help, the rest of the state will be there.”

Cuomo says New York needs help to ramp up testing and recruit workers to trace the spread of the pandemic. He says they will need help from the federal government before reopening the economy.
