Rep. Zeldin Helps Secure 4,000 Additional Ventilators for New York Amid Coronavirus Outbreak
PATCHOGUE, NY - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the bipartisan Congressional Coronavirus Task Force, just announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is sending 4,000 additional ventilators to New York State over the course of today and tomorrow. Congressman Zeldin has been working closely with incoming White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office not only on securing this shipment, but also obtaining more ventilators to be best prepared for the coming days and weeks.
“As the state hit hardest by the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the State of New York desperately needs ventilators to treat its ever-growing number of patients,” said Congressman Zeldin. “In partnering closely with the Administration, especially incoming White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and Governor Cuomo’s office, this delivery of vital ventilators is incredibly important progress. Throughout this process, the cooperation between the federal, state and local government in New York has served as a model of bipartisan cooperation, and that example continues today.”
