Michigan governor says California has loaned 50 ventilators
The Michigan governor announced Wednesday that the state is receiving 50 ventilators on loan from the state of California. Gretchen Whitmer said in a news release that the ventilators have arrived in Lansing. “From the beginning, Governor Newsom has taken swift and aggressive action to protect California families from the spread of COVID-19,” reads a statement from Whitmer. These ventilators will save lives and help our health care system treat more COVID-19 patients here in Michigan.
