立法者和維權組織表示紐約州撥款用來對抗新型冠狀病毒的四千萬美元 應向受疫情最嚴重的地區提供醫療經費以及緩和經濟壓力

3月4日,亞美醫師協會(CAIPA)總裁兼執行總監劉季高醫生出席了在法拉盛舉行的新聞發佈會,紐約州眾議員金兌錫(Ron Kim)宣布該項撥款通過了紐約州議會兩院的表決。

金正恩是第一個共同發起這項措施的立法者,該法案獲得了4000萬美元的資金,以保護紐約人免受COVID-19疫情的威脅,並在經過大量辯論後帶領該法案在議會獲得通過。這位議員于2020年2月7日首次提議設立一項緊急贈款,以對抗COVID-19,當時他與包括CAIPA在內的幾個紐約專業醫學協會共同創建了亞裔美國人健康諮詢委員會。.雖然該機構的長期計畫是定期解決當地緊迫的健康問題,但其自最近成立以來最緊迫的優先事項是應對COVID-19帶來的挑戰。

這4,000萬美元撥款中最重要以及最直接的用途之一,就是確保對受新冠病毒感染的所有患者進行充分的測試和治療。 金兌錫和出席會議的幾位醫學協會的主席強調,有必要將這筆撥款分配至需應對可能出現大多數新冠病毒相關症狀患者的醫療中心和醫院。

紐約韓裔美國人聯盟主席Charles Yoon法拉盛華人工商促進會總幹事杜彼得(Peter Tu)一同出席記者會。呼籲州長葛謨(Andrew Cuomo)將4000萬元部分防疫基金「借」給小商家,共度難關。
