"New York is in crisis, help New York", Cuomo pleaded, calling on the federal government to deploy resources from elsewhere to help the virus-stricken state.

Cuomo's remarks come at a time when the number of coronavirus cases in NY continues to increase every day.

Hospitals will either get their ventilator back at a later time or be paid so they can buy a new one. "I can't do anything more than that".

The governor added that the state now has 2,200 ventilators, stored in stockpiles, with around 350 people needing a ventilator to combat the novel coronavirus coming into hospitals every night.

"We have extraordinary measures in place that can make a difference if we run into a real ventilator shortage", Cuomo said.

The Trump administration's approach of treating the federal government and all 50 state governments as independent purchasers of medical equipment needed to combat the outbreak of the novel coronavirus has caused NY to lose 17,000 ventilators it needs to support the large number of COVID-19 cases in the state, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D). More than 100,000 people have now been infected in the state.

He went on to note that although the highest number of cases have occurred in New York City, the virus has reached every county in the state, with high numbers also being reported in Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. He insisted that no hospital would be left without needed equipment and supplies, and that only excess inventory would be redistributed.

He likened the effort needed nationally to combat the coronavirus pandemic to the sort of recovery efforts that occur following natural disasters such as hurricanes, when utility fix trucks from across the nation typically converge on the hardest-hit areas and then move on as the need shifts.

"That's how we beat this damn virus as it marches across the country", Cuomo said.

Response coordinator for White House Coronavirus Task Force Dr. Deborah Birx speaks during the daily briefing on the CCP virus at the White House on March 24, 2020.

National Guard troops will be sent to pick up the ventilators and move them to where they're needed "to save lives", Cuomo said. "But if you look at what's going on in this country, I just don't understand why we're not doing that".

Another 562 people have died of the coronavirus in NY, as the state's health crisis deepens.

"When our curve is over, that's what we're going to do. We are going to take our masks, take our equipment, take our personnel and take our knowledge and go to any community that needs it".
