how long did that take from the time they hit 1 new detected case per 1500 people per day? (which realistically means 1 per 150)

a long time.


let's see... about 3+ months


Have fun, red states.

Remember Son of Sam?
6 killed, 7 wounded.
Spanned 2 years.
All the shooting victims had long dark hair, and thousands of women in New York acquired short cuts or brightly colored dyes, and beauty supply stores had trouble meeting the demand for wigs.

6 people dead over 2 years, and people changed their behavior to survive.

But keep on telling me a mask has a metal strip in it that is a 5G antenna, ffs.

If Covid was a serial killer, taking this many lives....

Cuomo is seeing 60% approval in the state, highest it has been during his tenure I believe, and it is earned.

Being in NY has been a great experience, mainly because of information and transparency. As well as pretty wide adherence to the rules. Though I have seen that slipping a bit as people get comfortable.

Hell, if Covid was literally anything else. A product on the shelves, a car on the road, a cult in the woods, anything and we'd be doing something about it. But it's a virus and for some reason people don't care.

Have you heard about the COVID-19 Killer? He murders people he sees not wearing masks around others. Dozens dead already but the media won't tell you about it.

As a resident of a blue city in a red state..
Ugh.
I don't even farking know.
Even a coworker at the pharmacy thinks it's overblown, hoax, etc. Meanwhile cases are worse than ever in Montana.
I'm surprised the nursing home across from work hasn't been hit yet.

I'll keep cooking at home, reading, hiking, and generally avoiding people as I always have.

Uhhh, well when they were going to go back, NY/NJ was a shiatshow. So they stayed here, and invited their friends and family to come to FL where it's safe.

Now all of those NY/NJ plates are getting loaded up on car carriers as they've destroyed FL and are fleeing back.

Enjoy your low numbers for now. They're all coming back your way.

My cousin in Brooklyn calls herself a Cuomosexual. I'd probably agree if I still lived in NYC. He's made tough decisions and taken responsibility for them. Even the bad call with nursing homes was a good guess given the information at the time, and that he owned up to it makes me respect him. When a critical decision is required, it's sometimes better to make a bad call than to remain indecisive.

Why is the girl on the left listing to starboard like the Costa Concordia? Did Mom crochet that dress herself? Why is the kid on the right under an umbrella when nobody else is? Drama queen.  Why do three people have two umbrellas?  Where did their footwear come from? The Jesus store?

Of course he would have high support numbers from those that survived. He showed them leniency and they're forever grateful. Duh, sometimes I wonder if you people have to set an alarm to remember to breathe.

Not a chance this will stay like this. All the douchebos are coming back from mommy & daddy's house and they have not worn a mask or done a thing about social distancing the entire time they were away. They are having such a hard time wearing a mask. these effers go to get on the elevator and say they "forgot" their masks, they didn't forget, they got caught. Please go back to Jersey and Long Island, we don't want you here screwing up our numbers and chances to reopen.

I honestly don't really know enough about him to critique him beyond what I've seen since March. It didn't help that the federal response was a muddied message as well. NYS (and others) listened to them and it delayed things a bit. But every TV conference I have watched has been clear, concise and easily understood. It was daily for awhile to reassure the public. 

I have to admit that what I've seen is exactly what you want from a leader. As you described, you want someone willing to act, and willing to apologize for mistakes.

Just wait until that bum walks past the rat he previously had a love affair with before the heat of the pandemic. Sparks fly, and the virus is off and running, again.

"From those that survived?" Yes, if you mean the state survived. NYC had 0.38% of the population die from the disease, and today that number reached 0. In a city of 8.4 million people, no one died from COVID. Not many other population centers of the same size can say the same today. 0.16% of NYS population died from the disease since March. That's pretty damn good considering the rates that some states are about to see. There is a 2 week lag time behind testing spikes. Some states are in considerably more danger

A reminder. NYC has a population density of 27,000 per square mile as well. To tamp down a pandemic in those conditions is frankly amazing.

Because you don't stop covid by buying stuff, you stop it by not buying stuff. That is something Americans cannot abide.

Tokyo was picked as an example because the poster Googled "large city, low covid deaths" and ran with the result to fit his "America sux" narrative, completely devoid of context and trend.

Same in Ireland, no deaths yesterday, but we are seeing an increase in new cases, 17 yesterday, mostly amongst the under 25's. Hope it doesn't continue as they might push out the last easing of the rules, currently set for the 20th of this month.

Much the same in Scotland. Only eight deaths over the past 15 days and no deaths at all on nine of those days. Small uptick on positive tests, but 17 (yesterday) in a population of 5.5m really isn't many, and very close to your figures.

The bad news is that we have an open land border with one of the worst affected countries in the world with one of the least effective governments, where deaths still run at 100 per day.

I suspect Boris is deeply embarrassed at how very much better we are now doing in Scotland and would like to see the score levelled. I live in a touristy area ... visitors from England are NOT welcome.
