The worst of the media are outlets like the NY Post and the Trump cheerleading FoxNews. These brainwashers still view the virus as a hoax and/or something to trivialize. A steady diet of them will get us all killed.

Governor Cuomo did shut it down. Shut the Subways down

More misinformation. They have never shut down the subways completely. Up until May 1 the subways ran normally. On that date they shut them down for 5 hours in the night for cleaning. You really need to start looking things up.

Seriously?? Please provide proof that those two outfits believe the virus is a "hoax".

At the end of the day, a pandamic was predictable/forecast for many years so anyone blame storming needs to look in the mirror.

Governor Cuomo has been lionized by the media for his daily pressers about the coronavirus in NY. He's reading speeches, of course, since there's a full-screen graphic ready to pop on screen as soon as he mentions the topic/sentence. But, no matter.

Cuomo and Governor Murphy from NJ should be answering very tough questions about their policies regarding nursing home residents and LTC residents re: Covid-19. In both states, nursing homes were forced to take back nursing home patients who tested positive.

How did that work out? Horrifically. Cuomo's been trying to dance around the topic whenever he's asked about it. Yesterday, he specifically blamed Trump because - he said - NY made its decision to force nursing home residents who tested positive back to their nursing homes because of the CDC guidelines that were in force.

Funny how Governor DeSantis didn't do that. Was DeSantis in violation of CDC guidelines? Of is this just another example of Cuomo thinking he can do no wrong, and that no one will actually call him out on it?

Thankfully, there finally is some growing concerns for investigations into what went down in NYS, and why. Will Cuomo actually pay a price for his policy? I wouldn't hold my breath. But there's lots of relatives of deceased NY nursing home residents who want answers, and some politicians are taking notice. There's a bit of an increase on the press side, but that's not to be counted on.

As we excitedly wait for a Coronavirus vaccine to keep us safe again we must not forget that 45,000 - 65,000 die in the US every year from Influenza even WITH a flu Vaccine.. I wonder where those numbers would be without a vaccine, I myself haven't had the flu in 15 years or so since taking the flu shot.. I think the mortality rate will continue to decline as we accept the responsibility of protecting ourselves and not expecting the Government to do it for us..

You are right GoodLife. And I was wrong about the Subways. You seem to get so much pleasure when I am wrong.

In my defense. I was following the events through frequent conversations with our granddaughter who lives in the lower East Side. She kept saying that they were not using the subways, so I assumed they were shut down.

I find this map and statistics very interesting. I understand the map and what it is portraying but it is unreadable . When I enlarge it it is still unreadable. Can you post a link where we can view for older eyes?

I commend you for admitting your error. Most here never do this. I am giving you a star for honest behavior.

However, your first comment in this thread sort of accused me of posting exaggerated titles or headlines. In fact I took those Florida scare headlines direct from the media. You should know by now I don't make posts without backup.

You can't see it better when you click on it? Try saving the image to your computer and then you can zoom in on it.
