White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Falsely Claims ‘Not a Single American Died For Lack of a Ventilator’

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany falsely claimed during a briefing with reporters that not one American died from lack of a ventilator during the coronavirus pandemic:

We got the N-95 masks out — ventilators are another good example, not a single America died for lack of a ventilator — a hundred thousand ventilators in a hundred days, three-times what is produced in the average year.

BuzzFeed News and the New York Times reported that hospitals and doctors have had choose who would live and die due to a lack of ventilators.

A New York City public hospital doctor told BuzzFeed News about the grim reality on April 4:

I watched like three people die on Saturday — nothing we can do. Zero. You feel defeated. You feel drained.
