New York, New York? Prolonged shutdown raises doubts about future

New York, New York? Prolonged shutdown raises doubts about future”

The Central New York, Finger Lakes, Mohawk Valley, North Country and Southern Tier regions have been approved to begin phase one of their reopenings after hitting the series of benchmarks the governor established to allow the process to begin. Connecticut, New Jersey and NY have all seen positive trends in the data and on Friday, Cuomo announced hospitalizations and deaths were both down.

"You increase economic activity, we expect to see an increase in numbers", Cuomo said.

Despite emergency field hospitals having come down and sirens noticeably less frequent, residents required to wear masks outdoors and clapping for essential workers at 7:00 pm are daily reminders the crisis is far from over. New York City is not included in the openings.

All key health indicators continue to trend down, though at a "stubbornly slow" rate, Cuomo said.

The governor, meanwhile, announced Thursday that a central area of NY state was now ready to open, bringing to five the number of regions that will begin phase one of reopening on Friday.

"Do not underestimate this virus, and do not play with this virus". "If you need medical attention, if you need a medical procedure, you should get it", Cuomo said.

Upwards of 700 NY state residents were dying every day at the height of the crisis last month.

New York, New York? Prolonged shutdown raises doubts about future

As of Thursday, more than 343,000 cases of Covid-19 and 22,170 related deaths have been confirmed in NY state.

The Mid-Hudson, Long Island, Western New York and Capital Region meet five of the seven metrics.

A recent spike in children becoming infected with a rare inflammatory syndrome similar to Kawasaki disease that scientists suspect is linked to COVID-19 has also reignited fears about the virus.

"This is impacting children who are between 1 and 21 years old, so parents should be aware and informed of this", he added.

It has also left hundreds of thousands of people unemployed and the city facing a multi-billion-dollar funding crisis that threatens a financial crisis not seen since the 1970s.

"We'll bounce back. We're New Yorkers". I understand from their point of you, we funded businesses, we funded millionaires, that's nice, how about working Americans, and that's what the Senate should think about, how do you actually help the American people.
