I know 1200 can go by quick if things get much much worse. But I watched a ton of updates, and it was more or less stressed over and over that hospitals were already reaching max and ventilators as well. Hell, I even told my wife that if I was gonna get it, I would rather it be then, as they were about out.

This IS an extremely dangerous time and folks need to listen. At the same time, I do think some of the panic isn't necessary to the level it's at. Hoarding for example, just isn't necessary. Common sense & the truth and full and complete facts from ALL of our respective leaders.

Sounds like minimum another 2k of them on their way here to NY, so for now about 3200 stockpiled.


Gov. Andrew Cuomo Admits Stockpile of Thousands of Unused Ventilators

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo acknowledged Friday the state did have a stockpile of unused ventilators, despite his complaints the federal government was not sending enough.

Cuomo responded to a comment from President Donald Trump on Twitter that there were thousands of ventilators in New York not being used.

“Yes, they’re in a stockpile because that’s where they are supposed to be, because we don’t need them yet,” Cuomo said. “We need them for the apex, the apex isn’t here, so we’re gathering them in a stockpile.”

Cuomo’s comments demonstrate there is not an immediate shortage in ventilators in the city, despite alarming reports.

“We don’t need them today, because we’re not at capacity today, that’s why they’re not deployed because they’re not needed,” Cuomo said.

The governor has repeatedly complained that the federal government is not sending enough ventilators to New York.

On Tuesday, Pence said that the federal government had sent 2,000 ventilators to New York and an additional 2,000 more on Wednesday.

But on Friday, Cuomo explained expert projections showed he would need up to 140,000 beds and 40,000 ventilators.

“I don’t operate here on opinion, I operate on facts and on data and on numbers and on projections,” he said.

In an interview on Fox News on Thursday night, Trump appeared skeptical that New York would need 40,000 ventilators.
