"We are all in this together.” Oregon Gov. Kate Brown tweeted.

Oregon sends 140 ventilators to New York
Quote:
Oregon is sending 140 ventilators to New York, Gov. Kate Brown announced on Twitter Saturday morning.
“New York needs more ventilators, and we are answering their call for help,” Brown wrote. “We’ll be sending 140 ventilators to help NY because Oregon is in a better position right now. We must do all that we can to help those on the front lines of this response.”
Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted his thanks on behalf of New York, which is the state hardest-hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are so grateful to @OregonGovBrown and the people of Oregon,” he wrote. “On behalf of the people of NY, I thank you and rest assured that NY will repay the favor when Oregon needs it.”

This was a good thing for Oregon to do.

I have been looking but I have yet to find data indicating that NY is out of ventilators.

Cuomo says they have 2,200 stockpiled but only enough to last another 6 days.

They have 350 people a day needing a ventilator. And seems people need to be on a ventilator for around two weeks, sometimes more.

It seems inevitable that NY is going to run out of ventilators.
