California to Send 500 State-Owned Ventilators to the National Stockpile to Help States in Need

Published:

SACRAMENTO –Recognizing that states like New York are experiencing immediate supply shortages as a result of COVID-19, Governor Gavin Newsom today announced that California would help meet this moment by loaning 500 state-owned ventilators to the Strategic National Stockpile inventory. 

“California is stepping up to help our fellow Americans in New York and across the country who are being impacted the hardest right now by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Governor Newsom. “We still have a long road ahead of us in the Golden State – and we’re aggressively preparing for a surge – but we can’t turn our back on Americans whose lives depend on having a ventilator now. We’re meeting this moment with compassion. I know that if the tables were turned and we were experiencing a hospital surge, other states would come to our aid and provide ventilators just as we are today.”

California continues to prepare for a possible COVID-19 surge. The state is securing thousands of beds in alternate care facilities, protecting the homeless, purchasing critical medical equipment and launching new programs like the Health Corps to recruit health care professionals.

    So, the stockpile for the ventilators is federal? If yes, how can you trust the federal government to be fair in the distribution, if distributed at all?
