Mr Cuomo echoed concerns from officials throughout the country about states competing against each other for supplies amid widespread shortages.
“I’m bidding up other states,” he said. “California offers them $4, I offer $5, another state calls in and offers $6. It’s not the way to do it.”
The governor said he had spoken to Illinois Governor Jay Pritzker, who has also expressed anxiety about the state-by-state bidding war for desperately needed supplies, such as masks and ventilators.
Governor Cuomo said he had made progress in securing hundreds of thousands of items equipment - including masks, gloves and gowns.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) called on the federal government Sunday to order the manufacturing of medical supplies, so states do not have to battle each other to get access.

Seems to me this is a good job for all the seamstresses who have been put out of business or just a job. Face masks, gowns, caps -- all are fairly simple and quick to sew up. And lots of people have time on their hands.
And what a way to unite together... fight together... and take care of each other together. The true American way.
I’ve been thinking about doing this myself. But, where/how do you get the materials to make these items? And, with so many out of work and worried about their finances, who pays for the materials to make these items, even if we donate our labor to assemble them?
