Trump accuses hospitals of hoarding ventilators as the USA faces shortages

Trump had earlier made the claim on Twitter Friday, as infections and deaths in NY rose and hospitals complained of the coming dire need for equipment: 'Thousand of Federal Government (delivered) Ventilators found in NY storage, ' Trump Tweeted. You are making the difference.

Even more sobering. Trump says the peak of death rates for the country will actually hit in two weeks (right around Easter) and he doesn't want to declare victory prematurely. "The decision to extend this mitigation process until the end of April, I think was a wise and prudent decision", he said. "I just don't think that we really need to make a projection, when it's such a moving target that you can so easily be wrong and mislead people", Fauci said.

The incident is a good time to remember, though, that the country would benefit from a press corps less concerned with their cliques and more concerned about the American public they ostensibly report for. But experts have warned that America faces a shortage of critical supplies in the months ahead as the number of cases continues to grow.

The New York City area has reported 33,786 cases and 678 deaths. In actuality, the USA continues to lag behind other countries in terms of testing per capita, even if the total number of tests conducted does outrank that of other, smaller nations.

Major disaster declaration has been notified in almost two dozen states, in addition to Trump declaring a national emergency a week ago. One in 3 Americans remain under state or local government orders to stay at home to slow the spread of the virus. For example, in Silicon Valley and NY, the local police have started imposing hefty fine ranging from United States dollars 200 to USD 400 for those not adhering to social distancing measures in public places.

The immunologist also agreed with President Trump's decision not to impose a strict quarantine on New York State, New Jersey and CT over concerns the move would create a "bigger difficulty". The city is now running out of morgues. I've been watching them bring in trailer trucks - freezer trucks. because they can't handle the bodies, there are so many of them.

He continued to explain that the death rate is expected to peak in two weeks.

"If it is not a complete collapse, we are on the verge", he added. Cuomo has said his state may need 30,000 to 40,000 of them.

At the White House event, Trump said that if the USA death toll is held to 100,000, "we all together have done a very good job".

"As the president fiddles, people are dying, and we have to take every precaution", she said.

President Trump said on Monday that the United States has conducted coronavirus testing on "hundreds of thousands of people" and that is why the country now leads the world in the number of cases.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said on Sunday that more than 13,000 of those cases are in the Garden State. "We have to do better as a country".

President Donald Trump has talked about reopening the country by Easter Sunday, April 12, despite many states such as NY ordering residents to stay home past that date.

"You said it on Sean Hannity's Fox News [show], you said that you might-" Alcindor said.
