Quotes from the news wire:
This would be really painful news and would open up an entirely different chapter, because I can't tell you how many people I spoke to who took peace and solace in the fact that children were not getting infected, we thought children could be vehicles of transmission... but we didn't think children would suffer from it.
New York, the hardest-hit state in the nation with more than 320,000 cases, is allowingactivities to occur in the states marinas and boatyards. On Wednesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo noted that nearly 1,300 COVID-19 patients that were admitted to hospitals in the last few days were from people out of the workforce and abiding by stay-at-home orders. Overwhelmingly, the people were at home.
Because it is not that New York economy was closed down. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo can get on a bus, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo can get on a train, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo can buy food. But expand that list of essential services. And that phase, that evolution of the economic reactivation, is what we're talking about.
We have international travelers who were in China and who were in Italy and who were in Korea and who came here, and I have no doubt that the virus was here much earlier than we even know. And I have no doubt that the virus was here much earlier than it was in any other state. Because those people come here first.
It's higher in New York because it started here first, because we have global travelers coming here first, because we have more density than most places, but you will see this in cities all across the country. And you will see this in suburban counties all across the country, we are just a test case.
I think the federal government should order factories to manufacture masks, gowns, ventilators, the essential medical equipment that is going to make the difference between life and death, it's not hard to make a mask or PPE( Personal Protective Equipment) equipment or a gown, but you need companies to do it.
By law, no city in the state can close down, can quarantine unless the state government allows it. I will not allow any quarantine of any city or any jurisdiction in this state, so that is not going to happen, there's no discussion of closing down New York City, meaning quarantine geographic constriction.
Our primary goal right now is to slow the spread of this virus so that the wave of new infections doesnt crash our health care system, and everyone agrees social distancing is the best way to do that, this is not a war that can be won alone, which is why New York is partnering with our neighboring states to implement a uniform standard that not only keeps our people safe but also prevents state shopping where residents of one state travel to another and vice versa.
Out of an abundance of caution it would be helpful if... you agree to quarantine, isolate yourself for 14 days, we don't have any direct reason, you haven't tested positive, you're not symptomatic, but we're all good citizens, we're all trying to do what we can to stop the spread, that would be helpful.
