SALEM, Ore. -- Governor Brown tweeted that Oregon will be answering New York's call for help by sending 140 ventilators.

Brown said since Oregon is in a better position right now, we must do all that we can to help those on the front lines of this response.

"Oregon doesn't have everything we need to fight COVID-19 — we need more PPE and testing — but we can help today with ventilators. We are all in this together," tweeted Brown.

Associated Press reports that New York is expected to get over 1,100 ventilators from China and Oregon.
