is daily briefing the governor said he was very unhappy with the federal stimulus package not providing any funds for local government budgets it's for culvert nineteen treatment only and he says they're still shopping for ventilators Juliet Papa ten ten wins Nemo says the top priority is ventilators we approved a technology that allows one ventilator to serve to patients what they call splitting which is where you add a second set of tubes to a ventilator to do to patients it's not ideal but we believe it's workable they're trying to be creative we're also converting anesthesia machines to ventilators we have a couple of thousand anesthesia machines in our hospitals and we're converting them to work as ventilators menopause y'all offered encouragement today to overwhelm staffers at Elmhurst hospital the mayor describes Elmhurst hospital as the epicenter within the epicenter of the corona virus outbreak the folks at Elmhurst hospital folks doing this noble work need supplies and I'm committed to getting you supplies in fact in the last ten days we have four times resupplied owners hospital with additional ventilators and we will keep doing that until we're at the point that Elmhurst absolutely always has more than enough ventilators as for the needs of the whole city mayor de Blasio says we will have an additional twenty five hundred ventilators from the federal government within the next few days but that's only about a sixth of what we are going to need to get through this entire crisis we predicted this moment we need fifteen thousand ventilators on the corrections front mayor deblasio says he's worried about inmates who might be susceptible to serious complications should they catch cope with nineteen we are looking to release the inmates that we think are appropriate to lease that release that we think do not pose a threat to the community the mayor saying that the city's jail population fell below five thousand for the first time since nineteen forty nine Roger stern ten ten wins news some hospitals in the city are already over run with patience temporarily temporary morgues are being set up in refrigerated trucks have been brought in in some spots to handle bodies city council speaker Corey Johnson says he wants more city streets closed to vehicles during this outbreak so people can get outside with plenty of room the number of deaths in New Jersey has nearly doubled over the past two days six six thousand eight hundred seventy six cases eighty one deaths another two thousand four hundred ninety two positive test results in the state today the state health officials say thirty one point seven percent of those tested in New Jersey have tested positive governor Murphy tamp down rumors about when schools might reopen I'm aware that some school districts on a separate matter have already begun advising families as to when they anticipate re opening let me be perfectly clear on this that decision rests with yours truly we will not be prepared to revisit the closure until at least April seventeenth New Jersey did get some good news I am pleased to report that my request for a major disaster declaration request to FEMA has been approved by the president meeting we will now have access to greater essential federal research support to help our residents through this emergency it means we can lift some remaining bureaucratic barriers to assistance as well and be able to augment our response even more efficiently president trump has said he wants to get the economy back up and running as sooner rather than later Mr trump has sent letters to all fifty governors top of the letter to governors which will pressure them to lift the grip of forced social distancing and closed businesses president trump offering hope to people in areas not that hard hit we may take large sections of our country that aren't so seriously affected and we may do it that way but and we've got to start the process pretty soon Illinois governor JB Pritzker however has locked down his entire state and is worried about efforts from the White House to break that I'm concerned about the desire of the president to ignore the science to try to do something that has a desire to do the feds will look at infection statistics and give each county in the nation the high medium or low risk rating Costantini Washington the house is expected to vote later today on the two trillion dollar stimulus package passed by the Senate correspondent Andrew Nembhard speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's pleased with the Senate version calling it a good compromise since we take some pride in the fact that as I said earlier dem congressional Democrats in the Senate in in the house were able to flip this over from corporate trickle down Republican version to bubble up for for first families first legislation.
