Governor Cuomo Announces New York State to Send Covid-19 Medication Remdesivir to Florida

Medication to Help Florida Care for 280 COVID-19 Patients and Will be Delivered Tomorrow

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that New York State will send the COVID-19 medication Remdesivir to Florida as the state struggles with a resurgence of cases. Florida is waiting for a further supply from the federal government and New York will provide enough Remdesivir to help the state care for 280 COVID-19 patients until the federal shipment arrives. New York’s shipment of the medication will arrive in Florida tomorrow.

“When New York was climbing the COVID mountain with no end in sight and resources were scarce, we were incredibly moved by the generosity of states around the country that stepped up to provide supplies and medical personnel in our time of need,” Governor Cuomo said. “Thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of the people of New York – and the assistance of those states – we bent the curve.  With continued discipline of wearing masks and social distancing, along with a phased, data-driven reopening, New York’s numbers have remained low and steady. I said at the time that we would return the favor if and when other states needed help.  Today, on behalf of all New Yorkers, we will deploy Remdesivir to help Florida care for patients as it waits for further supply from the federal government.  We will stand by our fellow Americans every step of the way as our nation fights COVID-19 together.”
