More than half of New York City’s population can expect to be infected by the coronavirus, Mayor Bill de Blasio said. Most will suffer only a “mild experience,” but many will become very sick, and “we are going to lose some people,” he said.

April will be tough and May tougher before the virus crisis eases, he said. The city has seen 192 deaths so far, and there are more than 26,000 confirmed cases of the virus statewide, according to the Hopkins dashboard.

  5. Cuomo is right. New York is just first. Look at Italy, it was first. The question is, what city will be next, and after? Why can't we just go on a globalLockdown.

  9. All talk no action! Complain Complain Complain !

  10. He and his liberal friends love to blame others for the mess in NYC, when it is obvious that the cause of the situation is their very own flawed policies.

  11. What a kook! Sanctuary State = #1 in the country in infections.

    Like a drug addict, he refuses to admit the cause and the problem, but let's get those federal government handouts.

    Cuomo was the #1 reason we left that toilet and I'm glad we did.


  13. He said "they received 400 respirators. They need 30,000. What happened to the other 26,000?"

    If Trump said this it would be blasted all over for not being able to do math… but everyone here seems to have missed it. Maybe it is representative of those supporters…

  14. Good job you have accomplished in 2 weeks the same death toll it took Italy 2 months to accomplish!! NY not strong NY un prepared and that’s what you get for being concerned about the economy not human life! Try letting your nurses wear face masks instead of firing them for wearing their own,

  19. USA Today is garbage with their fear mongering "1/2 of NYC could be infected"..

  20. 3% of patients in ICU beds and Cuomo wants 50,000 ventilators. Asked if he has gotten the vents out of his stockpile and he said "NO" and asked why and he says "because no hospital has contacted him for one" – OMG

  24. This is the guy who thinks killing babies right up the moment of birth is OK!!!
    When he signed the late term abortion bill last year his fellow Democrats actually cheered!!!
    It was disgusting to watch!!!
    He also said a couple days ago that "you can't put a value on a human life."
    What a F*cking hypocrite!!!
    Almost 3,000 babies are killed EVERY DAY in America!!!
    862,000 abortions every year!!!
    How many thousands of innocent lives are snuffed out in your state Mr. Cuomo???!!!
    And he's worried about a handful of coronavirus deaths???!!!

  25. Bike lanes were important to Cuomo and not health essentials to New York!!

  26. The NEWLY SELF-APPOINTED president of the USA has spoken!!

  27. Instead of criticizing others, why didn't you you realize that your city was going to be ground zero in the US and do something weeks ago, you knew this was coming. It sounds to me as if you are now trying to shift the narrative. You are guilty of making this situation worse than it could have been and now you want all the resources to be directed your way. I wish this was not the case, but right now it is. I guarantee once you get those ventilators that you should have already had for situations like this (it's called emergency planning) you are not going to give them up. You're the kid in the sandbox that hoards all his toy and won't let others enjoy them when you are playing with something else. Now since you're not getting your way, you stomping your feet and trying to blame others.

  28. 2015 NY STATE REPORT:

    "New York State pandemic planning includes careful consideration of the potential shortage of ventilators, based on the estimates discussed above. There is a federal government stockpile of ventilators, but its use is limited for any one locality; there are not enough ventilators to be distributed to meet demand if many regions need them at once.

    New York State has stockpiled 1,750 ventilators to help reduce ventilator need in the face of the moderate scenario; however, there are no current plans to buy enough ventilators for the most severe model. The State’s current approach to stockpiling a limited number of ventilators balances the need to prepare for a potential pandemic against the need to maintain adequate funding for current and ongoing health care expenses. Furthermore, severe staffing shortages are anticipated, and purchasing additional ventilators beyond a threshold will not save additional lives, because there will not be a sufficient number of trained staff to operate them. In the event of an overwhelming burden on the health care system, New York will not have sufficient ventilators to meet critical care needs despite its emergency stockpile. If the most severe forecast becomes a reality, New York State and the rest of the country will need to allocate ventilators and other scarce resources."
