Ventilator shortage may occur in some areas of US - Trump

Unites States President Donald Trump on Tuesday said a ventilator shortage may happen in some areas across the nation, adding, however, the country has done a "great job" in taking measures necessary to prevent that from happening.

The president revealed reserves of ventilators were set up, not because the US lacks a required number to provide to everyone in need, but because the pandemic's peak in the country is expected in the next several weeks.

Previously, during the Administration's Coronavirus Task Force press conference Trump revealed the government is holding 10,000 ventilators back, in order to prepare for the greatest surge in virus cases which is expected in the next two weeks.
