Coronavirus: Trump orders General Motors to make ventilators

US President Donald Trump has ordered General Motors to make ventilators for coronavirus patients after attacking the car giant's chief executive. Mr Trump said that "GM was wasting time" and action was needed to save American lives. GM has been working with medical device manufacturer Ventec Life Systems, to build ventilators at the GM factory in Kokoma, Indiana. Mr Cuomo again emphasised a need for more medical supplies, saying the state's peak is expected to come in 21 days and there is still a shortage of thousands of hospital beds and ventilators. Mr Cuomo also fired back at Mr Trump's comments on Thursday night, where the president argued that New York was exaggerating its need for 30,000 ventilators.
