As per a report by Buzzfeed News, NY state paid more than $69 million for 1,450 ventilators that they never received. This comes after the state enlisted the help of a California man who responded to one of President Trump’s tweets. An engineer named Oren-Pines tweeted, ’We can supply ICU Ventilators, invasive and noninvasive. Have someone call me URGENT’. Officials say they recouped some money.
