New York "not ready" for high point of COVID-19 pandemic – Gov. Cuomo

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is warning that the state is still not ready to handle the peak number COVID-19 cases, expected in the next seven days or so.

The state has almost 80K hospital beds but is short of masks and ventilators.
