  1. NY Struggles Under Weight of COVID-19

    "Please come help us." That's how Gov. Andrew Cuomo appealed to out-of-state medical workers yesterday as New York surpassed 66,000 infections and 1,200 deaths. Standing along the Hudson River, locals greeted the arrival of a 1,000-bed Navy hospital ship to ease the burden on the Big Apple's facilities. Meanwhile, Ford and General Electric announced they'll produce 50,000 ventilators over the next three months.

    What's in store for the future? Statistics from the White House estimate that 82,000 Americans could die from COVID-19 by August — even if social distancing guidelines remain in place through May.
