  • Here's New York governor Andrew Cuomo.

  • Older, sicker patients who are staying on ventilators longer.

  • They usually have a worse outcome right on.

  • I think people get that from their usual experience.

  • What we're seeing now is that is happening.

  • We've had people on for a very long time and they haven't gotten better and they are passing away.

  • So the number of deaths is a 3 85 It's up from to 85 and since we still have a large number of people on ventilators for a long period of time, the experts expect that number to continue to increase.

  • Emergency services are being inundated, magazine writer Michael Brendan Dougherty.

  • He sent out this tweet it's worth.

  • Ah, look.

  • Last night, emergency services in New York took 6406 medical calls, the highest volume ever that s'more than on 9 11 While New York City is scrambling to prepare hospitals for an influx of new patients, one hospital in Queens people have died inside the emergency room while waiting for a bet.

  • A refrigerated truck has been stationed outside to hold the bodies off the dead.

  • Pretty grim reality, Really?

  • In New York, let's take a quick look at what is happening there.

  • This is one hospital queues outside people waiting to get tested.

  • 13 Corona virus patients have died here Justice Hospital in the last 24 hours, another hospitals or equipment going in there.

  • This is in Manhattan to actually a makeshift morgue there, too, which is pretty sobering on down here.

  • This is me, Miami, on This is a huge field hospital, said she that's being built upto.

  • 250 covert 19 patients could be treated here at a time.

  • Once that is finished Now, getting a bed in the hospital is one issue.

  • The availability off ventilators is another.

  • Here's Governor Cuomo again the number of ventilators we need is so astronomical.

  • It's not like they have them sitting in the warehouse.

  • In the federal government, there is no stock pile available well alongside the physical disease.

  • Affecting tens of thousands of Americans is the economic impact, which effects millions right across the country.

  • Of course, almost 3.3 million Americans filed unemployment claims last week.

  • That's a record.

  • It's more than four times, actually the previous record.

  • You see how that compares to the past 20 years?

  • Also, in this graph on this graph, even more striking Mrs from CNBC shows the past 50 years, and you can see another spike while Our North America editor, John So pull share back graph.

  • Let's take a look at what he said about it.

  • I've never seen a graph like this.

  • This is the weekly U.

  • S.

  • Jobs data going back 50 years rise today.

  • Less a spike, um, or a sky rocket on Now our North American reporter, Anthony Zerka.

  • Let's try and get his tweet up because his is interesting to read, he says.

  • The latest unemployment numbers were predicted to be bad.

  • They turned out to be catastrophic hum and catastrophic is a strong word, perhaps, but that's what he's using, and this is where he's using it.

  • This is his article well worth a read.

  • If you get a chance, I'm just going to show you one quote from it.

  • The government ordered shutdown hasn't just shouted businesses temporarily.

  • It has vaporised are the jobs off millions of Americans, many of whom are particularly vulnerable hourly service workers who live paycheck to paycheck.

  • And, he says, the test our will now be whether the multi trillion dollar relief will do enough quickly enough.

  • Well, his smear saying he was in New York force.

  • It is absolutely incredible.

  • We are talking.

  • About 3.3 million Americans lost their job in one week, not one month, not six months, but one week, and it completely obliterates any previous records.

  • Back in 1982 we saw that the highest number of weekly unemployment insurance claims were made were 665 1000.

  • This is just staggering, and it just goes to show just how ravaging the economic impact of the Corona virus will be right here in the United States.

  • And remember, this is just the first real piece of economic data.

  • It does not actually include people that are self employed.

  • So that means people part of the gig, economy and it also, according to some experts, it suggested it actually doesn't really truly reflect how many people have filed for were uninsured for unemployment insurance, because systems were just so overloaded by this many claims that it's possible that initial claims weren't really even all accounted for in this weekly number.

  • So it is pretty certain that we're going to see that this number is going to go up again.

  • I'm talking about numbers.

  • We just have this update coming into us here.

  • Outside source breaking news.

  • We can report that the U.

  • S has over taken China for Corona virus infections at John Hopkins University there, which is reporting, is now over taken China with 82,404 confirmed cases.

  • Of course, this started in China as the epicenter, and then that moved to Europe, where the World Health Organization declared that was the center of the pandemic.

  • It looks like it could be heading on to North America so that just coming into us in the last couple of minutes while the president, Donald Trump, has bean speaking as well.

  • In the last hour or so, let's take a listen to what he said, Oh boy, Well, how the world has changed, how the world has changed, right?

  • But it's gonna end up being better than ever.

  • So striking an upbeat tone that some of his Democratic rivals have begun highlighting his previous comments, he's made downplaying the threat off the outbreak.

  • Critics have pointed Teoh tweets like this.

  • So this is from earlier this month.

  • Donald Trump says the last year 37,000 Americans died from the common flu averages of 27 70,000 per year.

  • Nothing is shut down.

  • Life on the economy goes on.

  • Think about that.

  • Well, I wanted to think about the fact that this tweet was sent on March, the night that was the same day.

  • All obviously went into a national locked down.

  • A desperate effort to stop the spread of the virus to Democratic groups started running multi $1,000,000 ad campaigns in swing states, criticizing President Trump's handling off the crisis.

  • Here's one from a group called Priorities, you say a USA atom.

  • It's not pulling any punches.

  • The Corona virus.

  • This is that new hoax.

  • We have a totally under control.

  • It's one person coming in from China one day.

  • It's like the miracle it will disappear when you have 15 people and within a couple of days is gonna be down to close to zero way.

  • Think we've done a great job in keeping it down to a minimum?

  • I like this stuff.

  • I really get people surprised if I understand.

  • No, I don't take responsibility and something else to bring.

  • Year after years of politicians in the USA demanding limits movement across the border with Mexico, it might get their wish, but not quite in the way they imagined.

  • So this is the border between the U.

  • S.

  • State of Arizona on state of Sonora in Mexico.

  • Group there has been threatened to blockade traffic coming from the U.

  • S.

  • Because of lack of screening at the border, while the US now has the third largest number of cases off the virus in the world.

  • And we've just been hearing that now that might have changed that have Bean confirmed cases in Arizona.

  • Mexico has just 5500.

  • Excuse me.

  • Now Cata K is in Washington has the latest on along this, but we start by chatting about those economic measures.

  • Look, I don't think anyone's thinking this is going to be the last of it.

  • You have Nancy Pelosi speaking today, saying that they're gonna have to look Atmore because of those job loss numbers that you just mentioned.

  • 3.3 million.

  • Let me just give you some context there.

  • That is already Mawr jobs lost in America than were lost during the whole of the 8 4009 financial crash during the Great Depression.

  • At the end of the 19 twenties, 13 million jobs were lost, but that was over the course of three years.

  • This has only been a week that the U.

  • S.

  • Has being shut down, and already we've got 3.3 million filing for unemployment, probably more wanting to do so.

  • So with that kind of economic devastation, I don't think anyone on Capitol Hill is kidding themselves that this massive stimulus package that's just being put out, eyes going to be the end of it.

  • Yeah, interesting.

  • Catty are what we've been showing people the images from New York.

  • Now I want to go to them.

  • Kind of the human cost is supposed to the economic costs and those.

  • It's an extraordinary that New York state has become this kind of happy center on this feuding, it seems, between the governor off New York on President Trump.

  • Yeah, keeping on Louisiana, by the way as well, because we're starting to get reports out of Louisiana, New Orleans in particular, known as a party town, that that could be another big hot spot, not as record ported as much as New York, but still another problem there is.

  • There is friction with governors and the federal government throughout the country, with federal, the federal government, the White House, Donald Trump saying Look, it's up to governors and up to states to get hold of ventilators to get hold of the protective equipment that they need on those states, saying no, we need a coordinated effort because here's what's going on.

  • We found out in the last day or two that individual states are competing against each other for ventilators, for masks for protective gowns and shields for goggles on.

  • That's driving the price up of some of these protective equipment that the doctors and nurses so badly need and which is why you've got people like Andrew Cuomo saying this shouldn't be done on a state by state basis, actually need some kind of federal coordination to make sure that the people that really need the supplies of getting them on that states aren't competing with each other or competing with the federal government for the scarce resources that there are.

there are now are more than 80,000 confirmed cases in the US, just shy of the numbers in China and Italy.
