Governor Andrew Cuomo while sharing a vital information about the pandemic said infections could peak in between four and 14 days.
In his words, “Part of me would like to be at the apex and just let’s do it. But there’s part of me that says it’s good that we’re not at the apex because we’re not yet ready,”
Mr Cuomo while thanking China for sending 1,000 ventilators, which were due to arrive on Saturday, stressed that the state of Oregon would deliver 140 more, emphasizing that the state was continuing its search for more ventilators.
In reaction to the situation, his daily coronavirus briefing, US President Donald Trump said he had assured Mr Cuomo that New York would get the resources it needs.
