The article goes on to state the following:
Cuomo said that shortage is “troubling” but noted that there are extraordinary measures the state can take to increase its supply.
Trump criticized New York’s efforts to get supplies Thursday while praising Governor Cuomo at the same time on Twitter.
Trump tweeted, “It wouldn’t matter if you got ten times what was needed, it would never be good enough. Unlike other states, New York unfortunately got off to a late start. You should have pushed harder. Stop complaining & find out where all of these supplies are going. Cuomo working hard!”

Cuomo said 2,200 ventilators remain in the state stockpile, but an estimated 350 people per night enter hospitals in need of ventilators.
“If the person comes in and needs a ventilator and you don’t have a ventilator, the person dies,” Cuomo said.
Cuomo stated that he spoke with President Trump on Thursday morning and said the federal government is “very aware of our situation.”
