    Default Cuomo Today

    Rate of increase in cases is going up. 2X every 3 days. !40k hospital beds may be needed. Their project need is 40K ICU beds, they have 3k.

    They are opening Javits center as a hospital.

    They could be 14 days from a serious problems. They NEED to slow the increase, it hasn't happened yet.

    They have the highest testing in the US. They've exhausted their options, they've done all they could, including anti-malarial trials. They are testing for antibodies to virus-meaning immunity.

    Apex is higher than thought and coming sooner than thought it would. They are still far short in the number of beds. They are trying to get hotels, dorms, etc. They need more healthcare workers and back up workers. They know the rate of sickness among staff is high.

    The are desperate for ventilators. Life and death depends upon them. They have 3-4k. They have gained 7k, still need 30k. Can't be bought or found. Can't be made in 10 days. They are trying a procedure of using 1 ventilator for 2 patients. It's experimental, dangerous, but necessary. He is asking the feds to consider using National Procurement Act. 3 or 5 weeks isn't going to cut it, the feds under the act would give the company the $$ for workers to produce in 14 days. No red tape. Voluntary offers are too slow.

    He's also suggesting to move ventilators across the country-NY is the 'canary in the coal mine.' What's now there, will be somewhere else when it passes NY. Then move them to the next region reaching their apex.

    He's realizing what others are not, that the virus is moving at different times through the population. Now it's NY, CA, WA; Next will be IL, FL, TX, etc. We can learn and help as time goes on.

    Job 1 should be saving lives.

    Let those with antibodies go back to work. Then the economy can move along without more health endangerment. People are not going to pick 'fix economy over lives,' restart economy while protecting the health.

    As much as I loathe his politics, I have to say that Cuomo is all over this and doing a good job. I get a kick out of his NY 'tough guy' phrasing and almost a mafia kind of cadence to his speech at times.

    Jim does the same thing, and they're probably both completely unaware of it. Sharon loves hearing Jim talk because it reminds her of her childhood in New Jersey.

    Yeah, I loathed him. then last week I caught one of his briefings, I was shocked by how much he seemed to know. Then he go along with Trump, whereas they'd been feuding just weeks ago-remember?

    Today he's on Trump's shit list. He 'could have ordered ventilators two years ago for pandemic, he chose not to. Not the federal government's fault.

    Trump wants the country back to work. By Easter.

    Not built to 'stay home.' I've been watching him on FOX town hall with Pence, US Surgeon General, Birks.

    Even referring to 'hot spots' he says we can work around those that are ill. We got to get back to work.

    If he's right, genius. If he's wrong, gonna be ugly.

    Yes, I do. I'm proud of both of them for putting aside vastly different political views and working together on this.

    Today he's on Trump's shit list. He 'could have ordered ventilators two years ago for pandemic, he chose not to. Not the federal government's fault.
    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Trump was talking about de Blasio. De Blasio hasn't stopped his whining yet or shown any kind of leadership. If NYC is saved, it'll be due to Trump and Coumo's hard work and foresight.

    Trump wants the country back to work. By Easter.
    Not going to happen. I've been accused of being overly optimistic but this just isn't reasonable.

    I understand where Trump is coming from and his dismay of watching his hard work erased in such a manner so quickly, but the economy will come roaring back - AFTER we have a handle on the damned virus.

    He just needs to be patient and have faith.

    He mentioned Cuomo by name. I heard that DeBlasio didn't fill out forms the other week, he's an idiot. This ventilator thing has to do with emergency preparedness coordination-governor.

    I think Cuomo is panicking with the NYC numbers, they say apex hits in 14-21 days. He's not getting anything 'made' by that time. So, panic. Trump doesn't like being criticized, especially when he's trying to go back to his happier scenario.

    Seriously Rick, I hope you're right and he can be talked back. I don't know, but it could be one of those 'things' that puts me back to a write in vote. Sort of laughing/crying. It's beyond reckless.

    I'll have to go look. I'm pretty sure what Trump said is that de Blasio didn't order the equipment and Coumo will save the day because he was on top of things. Again, I may have misheard what was said.

    I think Cuomo is panicking with the NYC numbers, they say apex hits in 14-21 days. He's not getting anything 'made' by that time. So, panic. Trump doesn't like being criticized, especially when he's trying to go back to his happier scenario.
    I definitely detected panic with Coumo this morning, but if those numbers are correct, it's justified and there'd better be a lot of Cavalry headed that way right now.

    Seriously Rick, I hope you're right and he can be talked back. I don't know, but it could be one of those 'things' that puts me back to a write in vote. Sort of laughing/crying. It's beyond reckless.
    We live in interesting times and this is all new to everyone. This whole thing will be studied in depth for decades to come.

    It's not unreasonable to see people getting frustrated, especially our leaders who are supposed to have answers to every scenario that pops up - this is all being figured out on the fly and the stakes literally couldn't be higher for all of us.

    I can't imagine the stress, and it will continue 24/7 for the next few months without letup.

    My Dad told me that Trump aka a few companies got some there and more coming, but unfortunately it's still gonna be hard to keep up. NYC is going to be much much worse, as it's a much more confined area for like 8 million people. I'm about 10-15 miles just north of there, and it's not any prettier. The only benefit in NY is the amount of hospitals, of which there are tons. But ventilators are needed as much as beds, if not more. I know some folks are getting plain old oxygen tubes as well. But the numbers are increasing quickly, and the "peak" hasn't hit yet. And the numbers are increasing quickly in NYC and here in lower Westchester County. Many many more are starting to wear masks.

    I try and type like an 'adult' on here mostly, but in live time I revert back to my usual NJ/NY dirtbag roots! A lot of people get a kick out of the NY/NJ talking. I am NOT one that talks like a hardcore NY'er from Brooklyn. I detest that accent myself. I didn't even think I have any type of accent at all, but ways of speaking and saying words for surely! Especially them bad ones!

    He is back to the flu, car accidents, and depression causes suicide. I do hope he's right, but I have my doubts. It could be genius, it could be disaster. He was at this point a little over a week ago; then seemed to care about lives; now he's back where he was. "Hey, people die of all sorts of things, we got to get back to work."

    ...By the way, at the same time this town hall took place, this bad news from Italy arrived. Looks like they’re not past the increase in deaths yet:
    CNN
    @CNN





    Italy has reported an increase in deaths of coronavirus in the last 24 hours. Another 743 people have died as a result of coronavirus. At least 6,820 people have died in Italy so far. There are at least 69,176 confirmed case of coronavirus in the country. https://cnn.it/2Ux3IDI

    89 people are talking about this










    It will be interesting to see what the message will be by the time Trump holds his presser this evening. Will they stick with this deadline, or will we see a walkback when the implications of this sink in with Trump’s advisers?
    Let’s not forget, though, that governors control most of this process, including when businesses re-open. They may not be anywhere near as sanguine about their preparations — and they’ll be a lot closer to the situation.
    ...
    It's true about the governors and control of 'stay at home orders,' but if the President is calling those at home shirkers, unpatriotic, etc., his 'people' will flip off the governor or anyone that tries to stop them.
