"The Trump administration has so far resisted calls to use a Cold War-era law to help fill gaps in medical supplies that are badly needed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Many governors and health officials have been pleading with President Trump to use his authority under the Defense Production Act to get the federal government more directly involved in the buying and distribution of items like ventilators and face masks — items that have been in short supply, with states competing for them.
But Trump has given mixed messages about his use of the law, and the White House has argued that it has not needed to use its authority under the measure because the private sector has been cooperating with the administration on its own."
