Published

on

According to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, his state is “relatively comfortable” with the number of ventilators and other protective equipment it is in possession of right now.

New York is the state that’s been hit the hardest in the coronavirus outbreak and has been struggling with keeping an adequate supply of medical equipment to protect medical professionals and help treat patients who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Many of the shortages have focused on items like gloves, masks, and ventilators. However, as of Friday, Cuomo said New York now has enough equipment to function.

“We’re OK right now. We’re OK. PPE you need every day. We have a stockpile where we are now relatively comfortable,” Cuomo said. “Remember, what we’re saying to these hospitals, they’re all uncomfortable. If you ask any hospital if they have enough PPE, they will say no. It is like asking a budget director does he have enough revenue. They will never say yes.”

He continued, “These hospitals are accustomed to having a one-month to two-month stockpile. They are now looking at several days of stockpile. So, they are all uncomfortable, but we only have several days for any hospital. And we do have several days for every hospital, and we do have a supply that’s coming in. So, compared to how we have been operating on this new dire circumstances, we are relatively comfortable with ventilators and PPE.”

Cuomo made it clear the current situation could change if the rate of hospitalizations for the coronavirus were to suddenly spike up again. As of now, the state has been seeing the numbers level off a bit over the last several days.

The governor stated that he talks with hospitals daily and gets reports concerning the supplies these facilities have to ensure they stay stocked with what they need to keep running and treating those who come down with this illness.

Here’s to hoping the good news continues for the people of New York.

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

Published

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.

Liberal Officials At State And Local Level Using Coronavirus Aid Money For Free College, Guaranteed Income

Published

on

State and local officials are taking full advantage of the millions of dollars they have received from CARES Act funding — before it reverts back to the federal government — by spending the money for many, many different kinds of liberal priorities, including free college, “Trunk or Treating,” or an experimental income program. The CARES Act has provided $139 billion for state and local governments. These payments have been used to fund a plethora of programs, including police budgets and utility assistance for struggling residents. And that is the sort of thing this money is supposed to go toward. Helping folks of all walks of life endure the hardships caused by the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns. However, liberals are using this money to support their own little pet projects and causes too. via Fox News: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is spending millions on free college for more than 600,000 essential workers. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell agreed to spend $629,000 to hire 15 community relations specialists. Democratic St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter recently announced a guaranteed income program for low-income families using $300,000 in CARES Act money but has received pushback from a fellow Democrat. Earlier in September, Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wrote a letter to Carter expressing concern that the spending fell outside of federal guidelines and could be subject to recoupment by the U.S. Treasury. https://twitter.com/MayorCarter/status/1301936145585106944 It’s not at all surprising to see liberals take money that was supposed to be designated to help folks struggling in the wake of the pandemic closures for things they’ve always wanted to have the money to put in motion. What’s maddening is these same officials are already standing in line, hands out, begging for more money because there isn’t enough to actually help people in their communities because they misappropriated the…
