    Cuomo to sign executive order to seize medical equipment as necessary

    US coronavirus live: Cuomo to seize ventilators from owners to give to hospitals in need | US news | The Guardian

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo said he would sign an executive order to seize medical equipment from hospitals that are not as overwhelmed with coronavirus patients right now.

    Cuomo said the National Guard would be used to take ventilators and personal protective equipment to help hospitals that are particularly hard hit right now, presumably those in New York City and Long Island.

    Cuomo said the equipment would be returned or reimbursed, but the move is likely to spark outcry from hospitals in upstate New York, which has seen fewer coronavirus cases.

    I can't imagine a hospital not sharing ventilators that they aren't using.

    Is it even a thing?

    Note to all Republicans who condemn using a state of emergency to seize medical equipment from underburdened hospitals in order to save lives: you supported using a national emergency declaration to divert tax dollars to build a ****ing wall.

    So settle down.

    I'm sure the folks in Schenectady who die because the governor sent all their ventilators to the Bronx will understand.

    Re: Cuomo to sign executive order to seize medical equipment as necessary

    Have you seen where Trump's government is importing equipment to give to wholesalers so the hospitals have to bid against each other "like we were on Ebay!"? That's how it should be done, right?

    Are you a foreign intell disinformation agent? Or just ignorant about the current epidemic in New York?

    The "death panel" members are POTUS, Pence, and the slow-witted state governors who refuse to tell citizens to keep their asses at home.
    If we limit exposure we reduce infection transmission. That would slow the flood of severely ill needing hospitalization--and use of rare ventilators.
    But of course Trump and the slower governors are unable/unwilling to tell folks to stay away from each other.

    Were those private funds, confiscated from private citizens? No? Didn't think so.
