NY Reported Only 5 COVID-19 Deaths Saturday, Cuomo Says

Trump's theory, and that of many Republican governors, according to Cuomo, was the following: "We can quickly reopen and we can handle the virus because it will disappear or we will have a vaccine".

Hospitalizations from the disease also dropped Saturday, bringing the total number of people requiring treatment for the disease down to 869. They are numbers. It is irrefutable.

A federal judge has overruled New York's guidelines on religious gatherings. "Why don't we stop and acknowledge the undeniable reality of the situation?" "We experienced a phased reopening primarily based on metrics", defined Cuomo.

"If we are going to maintain the progress we've seen, we need everyone to take personal responsibility - that's why I'm issuing an executive order that says any ny employee who voluntarily travels to a high-risk state will not be eligible for the COVID protections we created under paid sick leave".

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R-East Shore/Brooklyn) and Assemblyman Michael Reilly (R-South Shore) have called for an independent investigation to review the handling of COVID-19 in nursing homes across the state.

"New Yorkers have controlled the spread of this unprecedented virus by being smart and disciplined, and our progress to date is illustrated by the current low numbers of new cases and hospitalizations", Governor Cuomo said. That was months after some states, mainly grouped together in the south and southwest, opened their doors in an attempt to restart the economy.

Texas has been vaulted to fourth in the nation in infections with almost 150,000 after reporting six consecutive days of more than 5,000 new cases, according to data from Texas Health and Human Services. Ga went initial, reopening on April 24.

Meanwhile, cases are rising in 36 states, including Arizona, California, Florida, and Texas.

However, Abbott put a pause to those plans last week and then signed an executive order to force all bars and similar establishments to close to thwart the skyrocketing number of infections. Those who are found to have broken the self-quarantine can be fined more than $2,000, Cuomo said.

So, what does Cuomo want?

"There are no Democratic or Republican facts", he told me. "It truly is not subject matter to debate since the hospital mattress is both vacant or it truly is entirely, we both bury men and women or we do not".

That final thought is what Cuomo believes the country needs.

In addition to New Yorkers losing these COVID-19 paid sick leave benefits after visiting high-risk states, any travelers arriving from states where the virus is surging have been ordered to self-quarantine for two weeks.

One infected student later went to a second event following the graduation, where they came into contact with students from other schools in the area.
