President Donald Trump is sending 150 ventilators to Louisiana to help the state care for its coronavirus patients.

During a press conference Monday, Governor John Bel Edwards said the New Orleans area is on pace to run out of ventilator capacity by April 5th, but cited that that could change if the state received more equipment.

Governor Edwards said he's not sure of the specifications of the ventilators or when they will arrive, but he appreciates the federal support.
