China is donating 1,000 ventilators to help New York in coronavirus fight

Source: CNBC

The Chinese government has facilitated a donation of 1,000 ventilators to New York state, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday. The shipment is slated to arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday.

ďThis is a big deal, and itís going to make a significant difference for us,Ē Cuomo said during a morning press briefing. The state of Oregon is also sending 140 ventilators to New York, which has become an epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak.

Cuomo said New York was conducting business with Chinese companies and cited China as a repository of essential medical equipment. He thanked Jack Ma and Joe Tsai, founders of the Chinese e-commerce juggernaut Alibaba, as well as Huang Ping, the Chinese Consul General in New York.

Cuomo also said the state had put in an order for 17,000 ventilators but that the order went unfilled, likely due to intense competition for the machines and global shortages. The national stockpile has roughly 10,000 ventilators.

3. They said they would provide some, but the wh says a lot of things it doesn't do....

I think the number promised was 400. I don't know if they were ever delivered.

But look for thrump to seize these to add to the national stockpile. They have to go through customs before getting to nys.

4. Nope. Those ventilators are federal property.

The notion of the federal stockpile was it's supposed to be our stockpile ó it's not supposed to be state stockpiles that they then use. - Kushner

24. It's a hell of a commentary

when a foreign government has to send us the help that our own Federal Government gleefully won't.

Think about it seriously all you Trumphumpers and Trump administration........A big giant FUCK YOU ALL.

They obviously don't have any scientific minds, so if we could just figure out a way to make the virus mutate to a form that would only attack Republicans, we would be all set.....
Or even better yet, develop a vaccine that only works on Democrats......and let the Republican population suffer a fate they deserve for all that they have done to us, not just the virus.....

If I say anything more brutal, which is what they deserve, I will just get another spanking from DU........

25. Probably

that would be in keeping with the Republican administrations continuous actions. The Republicans would confiscate them, and only send them covertly to the purest Red states. Jared's premise for confiscating them?, national security and lies that they are Trojan Horses, they are all loaded up with the virus to sabotage the U.S.

When is all this going to finally sink in to the heads of all the Trumphumpers? There is nothing worse than the outrage of a group of people that suddenly realizes that they have been conned......If it does happen, I will sit back with a bag of chips and a soda and watch it like I watch the comedy channel........

All this crap being covertly sent to the Red states, should be hijacked by the Truckers and taken to the Blue states that are being hammered, and that aren't getting any of the supplies, like NY and Mass, etc We can revolt from the bottom up......
Blue State hospitals can cross check the names of patients with the States voting registry to see which party the patient voted for and use it as something to assist decisions of which patients get ventilators and which patients don't.

Fight fire with fire........

26. Watch out

Barr will have them arrested and charged with Treason for even talking to China or any other nations......I wouldn't put it past the Republicans. Just look at what they have done in the past few days to the Ukraine whistle blower and the Air craft carrier captain.......

I donít give a damn about Trump or Kushner or any other stupid ass Republican.

If these save even one person, itís worth it. Go, Andrew! Do whatever you have to do to save as many as you can!

31. How about ANY

of the Zillionaires?????????? Some have sent like ten million. That is laughable considering they are all worth more than 60 BILLION.

If they do happen to give some paltry millions, they shouldn't even be acknowledged in the press as "good guys".

How much has been given by the Jerk at Facebook, the asshole at Amazon, Warren Buffet the heirs of Walmart, etc etc etc All their efforts have been focused on how to make even more money off the crisis, not how to help the nation's people.......This is indeed the: "NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY" folks, watch them and weep.

Nothing, not one single thing, could be more contemptible than the Republican Senators insider trading. They sure as hell weren't spending any time doing the jobs they were elected to do, but totally focused on despicably re-arranging their own personal wealth and portfolios before the rest of us found out how bad it was going to be. In some countries, that kind of corrupt behavior is rewarded with prison, or even the death penalty......
