NY governor knocks $2T COVID-19 aid package

Top Political Scientists Weigh in on Cuomo's Political Future

"And since we still have a large number of people on ventilators for a long period of time, the experts expect that number (of dead) to continue to increase", Cuomo told a news conference. He would revise the amounts paid out to school districts, local governments, health care providers and all others who depend on state funding, based on how much money the state actually has collected from revenues.

"We are also scouting new sites all across primarily the downstate area of this state".

The goal is to have a 1,000-plus overflow facility in all five boroughs of Manhattan, as well as the neighboring counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and Rockland.

On Tuesday, Dr. Deborah Birx - the White House's coronavirus response coordinator - said the Trump administration is doing all it can to help bolster the recovery effort in NY. The total number of cases now tops 30,000, with the vast majority of those cases in New York City.

New York reported another 5,146 new infections, including 2,952 more in New York City. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., have widely different views on the federal bailout package approved by Congress. Cuomo said the measure would not give NY enough money to make up for the widening multibillion-dollar budget gap.

EMTs lift a patient into an ambulance while wearing protective gear, as the COVID-19 outbreak continues, in NY, on March 24, 2020.

"This is the really bad news", Cuomo said at a news conference Thursday.

In an attempt to flatten the curve or reduce a rapid spike in cases, Cuomo implemented measures to limit human interactions. "All essential services will be maintained".

Finance Minister To Address Media Shortly, May Announce Stimulus Package
For poor widows and the aged, an ex-gratia transfer of Rs 1,000 will be done for the next three months, in two instalments. Collateral-free loan will be doubled to Rs 20 lakh to 63 lakh women self-help groups, impacting 7 crore households.

"Almost any scenario will overwhelm the health care capacity", he said, seeking to present an aura of calm amid the storm, "That's reality".

Coronavirus deaths and hospitalizations in NY were both up dramatically, a stark sign of the outbreak's quickly increasing reach.

Kelly's sister, Marya Sherron, told the New York Post that her brother had informed her of his illness about 10 days earlier. As of Thursday, 52,000 people answered his plea and volunteered to help.

"Today, no hospital, no nurse, no doctor can say legitimately, 'I don't have protective equipment, ' " Cuomo said. Ventilators, though, are in short supply.

In addition, the state has authorized "splitting" ventilators so that one machine could serve two patients and was looking into converting anesthesia machines to ventilators. "If we could test a lot more, we would have a much better idea of how distributed this virus is".

The governor commended the president for utilizing the Defense Production Act as a leveraging tool to get more medical equipment and said getting 30,000 ventilators "is an extraordinarily hard task" but "it's something that our team is working on with the White House team, and I want to thank the president for his cooperation and his team for their cooperation". While hospitalisations had been doubling every two days as of Sunday, those numbers were doubling every 3.4 days by Monday, and by Tuesday the rate was every 4.7 days, Cuomo said. "We had the president saying, 'It's just a few people, don't worry about it'". He said NY will also need 140,000 hospital beds, up from the roughly 53,000 it now has.

"The LameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our Country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success", Trump wrote in a tweet.

Civil fines will be issued to non-compliant businesses, but not individuals, Cuomo said.
