On Saturday, Governor Andrew Cuomo said the Chinese government is facilitating a donation of 1,000 ventilators to the state of New York.
The ventilators are expected to arrive to JFK Airport sometime Saturday.
Cuomo called the donation a “big deal,” and said it will “make a significant difference for us.”
The state of Oregon will also lend New York State 140 ventilators, according to the governor. Cuomo called the relief “astonishing and unexpected,” saying the state of New York will “return the favor double fold.”
