OLYMPIA, Wash. — Governor Jay Inslee announced Sunday that Washington will be returning 400 ventilators to states hit hardest by COVID-19.

“Every state in America is united in the fight to save the lives of our people,” Inslee tweeted. “Though our mission is the same, our needs are different.”

Inslee says that states like New York, which have been battered by the coronavirus, will receive these ventilators.

“We can do this because Washingtonians are heeding the call to stay home,” said Inslee, explaining that social distancing is “saving lives here in WA and around the country.”
