Today is the day that New York State Governor Cuomo has designated as being phase 1 of his plan to dismantle the quarantine. We don’t fit under the categories of those who can officially venture out, but even if we were we wouldn’t let down our guard totally. As we mentioned yesterday we are going to be interested to see if the Coronavirus spikes due to all the close quarters demonstrations going on.
It appears that Cuomo has set up a way for many thousands of protestors to be able to find out if they have or are carriers of COVID-19. The success or failure of this method of taking the pulse of the disease, is only as good as those willing to get tested.
Caring About Our Country
Cuomo has even stated that those who were in demonstrations should assume they have the Coronavirus and to tell other they have it since they likely do. Does that sound like something that a bunch of twenty-somethings would do? Maybe if they really care about our country as they say they do.
Stepping Out into the Sunshine?
Tomorrow, June 8th, is the start of phase 1 of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s COVID-19 strategy. Some New Yorkers will come out of their apartments. We started our lockdown earlier than most, seeing the writing in the sky before it was official. But tomorrow is when many here in Manhattan will step out into the sunshine.
We’re waiting though. Because we want to see how the protestors fare after sweating all over each other in the recent demonstrations. We’re also curious about the vandals and looters. Of course the demonstrators are not the same demographic as the vandals/looters. For the most part demonstrators were peacefully seeking justice. Though in the end, they were all physically close together pursuing their various agendas.
A Vote Not Well Placed?
What will we do if we see that many of the demonstrators don’t have symptoms? Hard to say, because a lot of the demonstrators were not in age groups that were at risk. Speaking of the demonstrators it is interesting to note that our mayor is lifting the curfew. He has done this seemingly due to the negative feedback he’s been receiving from New Yorkers, including those of us who unfortunately voted for him.
Live from the Javits
Earlier this afternoon in a live broadcast from the Javits, Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York, pushed back on Trump’s statement of the low amount of ventilators the Donald felt were needed. Cuomo said that he operates on facts and that the president’s view on how many ventilators are needed is way off.
Could this be then end of the Bromance? Trump had nice things to say about A.C. for the most part on Hannity last night (yes, I have to admit, I watch Fox News sometimes), but the tide could changing.
There are even those who are speculating that Cuomo might jump into the political race for prez. Who knows. We do know though that here in Manhattan and the other boroughs we need our ventilators and hospital beds!
