Cuomo Says Funds Needed to Carry Out Vaccine Distribution

.Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo  issued a letter Saturday to President Donald Trump,  calling on him to use his influence and force Congress to ensure the next COVID-19 stimulus package includes  financial relief for American families, states and localities.

“If the president does not step in and act now to help the nation withstand, and begin recovering from, the COVID-19 pandemic, his lasting legacy will be as a President who allowed the national economy to crumble, while impeding the ability of states to quickly and efficiently distribute the COVID-19 vaccine,” Cuomo said.

The first round of vaccines arrived Monday in New York. Another batch of a second vaccine developed by Moderna is expected to arrive next week.

Cuomo also released the newest statistics on the epidemic.
