  1. 216 confirmed means probably 10x that currently and then 2x this number in ~3 days, 4x in a week, 16x in 2 weeks. It seems to double every 3-4 days (and NYC is disgusting and packed with people)
    Hospitals will be overrun like Italy.

  2. Why you guys don't wear face masks ? Face mask helps to slow down the virus spread !! Many infected people have no syndrome and the incubation period is much longer than we expected !

  3. IS UNDER CONTROL…WILL YOU ALL STOP FREAKING OUT? GO SNORE SOME DOPE AND CALM DOWN…YOU ALL SUFFER FROM WOODY ALLEN DISEASE OF PARANOIA.

  4. If it was done earlier it wouldn't have been quite as prolonged on the economy and in people's motives. You have all seen the patterns the info was out months ago. Less people would have gotten sick the demands for hospital beds would have been slowed. There are shortages of antibiotics which are crucial to so many including myself and I'm 24. Less people would have lost and would loose their jobs. Less people would have ended up on the streets. You will see this happen. It would have been a big blow and a shorter recession compared to what we will all face now due to lack of proactivity and not admitting true information. There could have been more room in budget to give incentives for employees to not fire people. They're could have been more money and sort of more resources to go around. This reminds me of the price war between saudi Arabia and Russia.

  5. Evolution of the virus in the Top 15 of the most infected countries from December to March 12: https://youtu.be/ZgJG1WmZGiU

  6. What if patient has flu but also covid19? If stop test at flu, how would be ever find out. Hopefully they r quarantined and treated mostly the same

  7. **MAYOR, U NEED TO "PROGRESSIVELY" EVACUATE THE CITY. TELL FOLKS NOW THAT EVACUATION IS AT THEIR OWN DISCRETION, THEN EVACUATION RECOMMENDED BY NEIGHBORHOOD, THEN EVACUATION BY ORDER (NEIGHBORHOOD SPECIFIC). THIS ALLOWS A MANAGED RELEASE OF PEOPLE AND POTENTIALLY SLOWING INFECTIONS.***NYC IS NOT LIKE CHINA OR HONG KONG, IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO ENFORCE AN ORDER TO KEEP PEOPLE SELF-QUARANTINED.***THE BETTER OPTION IS "PROGRESSIVE" EVACUATION, RECOMMENDED BY NEIGHBORHOODS (OVER TIME).**

  8. Amazing amazing response. 1,000 times better than Trump's. Great leadership. Next time he runs 4 president, I will be paying attention.

  9. You mean the President that took it so seriously that he shut down the flights from china and was accused of being racist ? that President ? What an ass this guy is !

  10. Richard A. Carranza rattled his response to Spanish speaking reporter in Spanish without bothering to tell English speaking folks what that was all about. Is that not rude? Does not that mean that anyone not speaking Spanish should not have that particular information? And especially now during the state of emergency?

  11. It's nice to see an official, in this case a mayor, taking action proactively as opposed to reactively too late. That said, leaving schools open is INSANELY stupid. Children CAN get infected and while they are miraculously far less likely to develop a severe reaction, they WILL be carriers spreading the virus to all the other kids and their parents.

    The solution is NOT to force parents to stay at home, but to engage the older kids in their teens into a kid sitter corps. Older teenagers who would normally be in school are recruited to 'babysit' the younger kids. This would need to be coordinated to ensure that the kids the teenagers are given responsibility for are as local as possible so as to minimize public exposure. There you go.

  12. as a musician with all my work canceled, do I have to pay rent ???? I dont have it ! And my lanlord told me he will see me in court. Help please ?

  13. calm down white folks……..you all will get your chance to pay for slavery……GOD has all the figures worked out !!! Exodus 21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

  14. What’s going to happen to ppl living pay check to paycheck if spread gets worse.lots of tenants will be kicked out by landlords bc they have no money for rent?? I foresee chaos ahead.

  15. As to all the talk of Containment Zone coming this weekend and The City Basically being shutdown rumors The Mayor Answers them at after the question at 57:08 everyone stay safe pls isolate… Seek assistance if needed as to work compensation or unemployment and eviction help

  16. Those are senarios He says as to any shutdown …they are doing senarios they are testing with the NYPD… So if anyone leaked about those senarios they are prepping for they are not facts… don't spread rumors

  17. Mass quarantines in New York Subways in about 7-10 days tops. Our governor said walk to take a bike to work. Avoid Crowed Trains, THERE R NO EMPTY TRAINs or BUSES DURING RUSH HOUR !! SHUT DOWN MASS TRANSIT.
    Wait till they test NYC. They are scared to test. Why? nothing Spreads a Virus like NYC Subways Governor. I Challenge you to test NYC. It's already in ALL 5 boroughs and you KNOW it.
    We have 10s of thousands in self Quarantine that wont stay in doors. So can i now where my N95 Respirator in a Bank you Moron. ( That's a law passed in 1845 look it up ).
    The N95 and P100 Mask and half mask Respirator work. Why do u think they wear them in hospitals dummy?
    Look up the spanish flu of 1918.

  18. Sign language guy signaling nonsense signs; appears to simply throw shakas 🤙, and hesitant when signaling key terms

  19. China released biological bomb on the rest of the world. People are getting sick and are dying, economies are being destroyed. China has 1.5 Billion people so death of 100 Million is of no consequence. COVID-19 is not the first biological disaster coming from China. Our squabbles about who is to become president are becoming less important Over 5 thousands people died to-date. How many will die before infection is conquered?

  20. CDC was caught flatfooted. There are no tests. There are no supplies in stores, no face masks, no hand sanitizers. US spends $10,500 a year on health care, the largest amount in the world. Yet only 5,000 people were tested to-date. South Korea spends $2,000 a year on healthcare and they already tested over 200,000 people. Why are we so inefficient?
