The governor says he has had confirmed orders for millions of pieces of medical gear evaporate.
At a press conference on Thursday, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker admitted he needs help with the response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“Our first responders, our health workers and everyone responding needs to have that gear and I’m telling you we are killing ourselves to make it happen,” said Baker. “It’s happened to us, it’s happened to many governors across the country - the issue about landing the order is very frustrating. And every call our big message to them as you have to let us land the order and it in continues to be the biggest challenge we face in some respects.”
