NY 'finally' gets 'good news' as China donates 1,000 ventilators

In Italy, more than 11,000 medical personnel have been infected - just under 10% of the official total - and some 73 doctors have died, according to the National Institutes of Health and the association of doctors. "I know how much we are asking of our health care workers on the frontline, and I thank them for everything they are doing because they are true heroes".

"I want Americans to understand that, as hard as this week is going to be, there is a light at the end of the tunnel if everyone does their part for the next 30 days", he said.

"We could be very near the apex, or the apex could be a plateau and we could be on that plateau right now", he explained, noting that various projection models have yielded a range of results. ICU admissions and intubations were also down, the governor said, while the discharge rate from hospitals was rising.

"We're all in the same battle here", Cuomo said, noting that the state of OR volunteered to send 140 ventilators to NY.

The number of deaths increased by 630, or 21%, compared to the number Mr. Known U.S. infections, approaching 275,000 cases, made up about 25% of the more than 1 million cases reported worldwide.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the state now stands at 102,863, almost half of all COVID-19 infections in the U.S., where the tally has reached 277,953.

What's the latest in NY?

Cuomo said NY has adopted a "surge and flex" approach to the hospital system: Surging the amount of hospital beds, staff and equipment, and flexing the entire system to be used in a different way than it has been before.

Meanwhile a new overflow hospital - the 2,500-bed Javits Center in Manhattan - would be staffed and equipped by the federal government, he said. He said NY needs the help of these young doctors.

"Anyone who's not already in this fight, we need you", said Mayor Bill de Blasio, urgently seeking help from "any health care professional: doctor, nurse, respiratory therapist, you name it".

"It can be a scarf, a bandana or one you make at home".

At the White House on Friday, President Donald Trump seemed to muddy the waters further when he announced that federal health authorities are now recommending individuals wear cloth face coverings to stem transmission of the virus.

Speaking at the White House on Saturday, President Trump gave a candid assessment of what lies ahead for the USA in the coming weeks.

When asked about Trump's comments on Saturday that he would like to see the restart of sporting events as soon as possible, Cuomo said it was best to defer to the medical experts.

"You could argue that you're seeing a slight plateauing in the data", Cuomo said, though he mentioned a timeline for the outbreak's imminent apex-which the governor has discussed during past briefings-remained unclear.
