The States of California and New York are loaning ventilators to Michigan to help assist the treatment of coronavirus patients.

California Governor Gavin Newsom reports that his state’s curve is flattening, and said he feels a “moral and ethical imperative” to help other states. He’s loaning 50 ventilators to Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is loaning the state 100 of the lifesaving devices. New numbers in Michigan released Wednesday put the state’s total number of cases over 28,000.
