Cuomo: All Non-Critical Elective Surgeries in New York Are Canceled

Cuomo: All Non-Critical Elective Surgeries in New York Are Canceled”

Northwell said it is offering the trials to patients already hospitalized in its facilities with moderate and severe COVID-19 conditions, with a goal of improving recovery and speeding discharge. NY is directing hospitals to produce a plan for how they can increase their number of beds by at least 50 percent. That would mean the state would have 75,000 beds.

"That is a sobering, sad and really distressing fact that should give everyone pause", Cuomo said. Such a deluge could overwhelm hospitals in a city that had about 53,000 beds.

"That will give us regional coverage in downstate NY, which is our must heavily impacted area", Cuomo said. The governor repeated his calls for calm and asked people to practice humanity and show some compassion towards others.

"We've got military all over our state doing all kinds of great things.helping with hospitals and building new hospital beds".

New York City has more cases than South Korea, Switzerland and the United Kingdom and, Mayor Bill de Blasio called the city the "epicenter" of the outbreak in the U.S. He noted that people over 70, a vulnerable group, represent 35 percent of COVID-19 hospitalizations but only 10 percent of the city's population. "You can't stand six feet away from people playing basketball", he said, referring to his "maintain 6-feet distance with others" order. "I've heard that. The elective surgery is a big source of revenue for the hospitals". "I've spoken with a number of health officials and there is a good basis to believe that they could work". Spending for the CDC Public Health Emergency Preparedness Funding, which covers the preparation to fight outbreaks of infectious diseases like Ebola or COVID-19, has declined dramatically under both Republican and Democratic administrations since 2003.

Hospitals are also required to double their capacity. The Post-Standard has asked for a statewide list.

Warnings of such shortages have reverberated across the country as other state governors have pleaded with the federal government to make more supplies available.

However, price gouging is becoming a major issue.

Following requests from local elected officials, Trump deployed the naval hospital USNS Comfort to dock in New York Harbor to supplement the area's hospitals as they prepare to deal with the worst of the coronavirus.

Ventilators range from $16,000 to $40,000 each.

For instance, N95 masks that the state was paying $0.85 for, are now costing up to $7.

Cuomo also is calling on the White House to enact the Defense Production Act.

He pleaded with US President Donald Trump to mobilize the military to help spur production and distribution of urgently needed medical supplies. Apparel companies would make gowns, for example, he said.

At his daily coronavirus briefing, Cuomo also offered the latest testing and positive numbers as of Sunday morning. "We need the product now".

He says New York City hospitals will be running short on fundamental supplies very soon. "This is not the way it should be done". "From my point of view, construction can start tomorrow", he said. On top of that, ventilators range in price from $16,000 to $40,000 each, and NY needs 30,000 - a situation Cuomo called "impossible".

Additionally, he's asking FEMA to set up four of its special hospitals at the Javits Center. Those come with staff and supplies and would each hold 250 patients.

"Time matters, minutes count, and this is literally a matter of life and death", Cuomo said. We get these facilities up.
