New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Holds Coronavirus Briefing | NBC News


WITH GARETH RHODES. MELISSA, JAMES DENOTE RIS Ph.D. DOCTOR. BRAND-NEW SCHOOL OF PHARMACY. PRESIDENT HARVEY STANGER, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR HAVING US. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL NEW FACILITY. PLEASURE TO BE HERE. WE ARE GETTING A LITTLE BIT OF A LATE START. I WANTED TO HEAR THE SENATE BRIEFING THIS MORNING ON THE COVID VIRUS, SEE IF THERE WAS ANY NEW THINKING. LET US GIVE YOU THE FACTS AND SOME OF THE NEW THINKING THAT WE ARE DOING HERE IN NEW YORK. NUMBER OF TOTAL HOSPITALIZATIONS IN THE STATE IS DOWN AGAIN. THAT IS GOOD NEWS. THE NET CHANGE IN HOSPITALIZATIONS, THREE-DAY ROLLING AVERAGE, A LITTLE MORE ACCURATE. THAT’S DOWN. THE INTUBATION RATE IS DOWN. THE CLOSEDOWN AND — LIVES LOST, 195. YESTERDAY IS THE MOST DEVASTATING NUMBER THAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH EVERY DAY. IT’S ACTUALLY UP A LITTLE BIT FROM THE DAY BEFORE. BUT OVERALL, THE TREND IS DOWN. AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF LIVES LOST, AGAIN, WE’RE JUST ABOUT WHERE WE WERE WHEN WE STARTED BEFORE WE SAW THE ONSLAUGHT OF THE VIRUS. AND THEN DEALT WITH IT AND CHANGED THE TRAJECTORY OF THE VIRUS. NEVER FORGET WHAT WE DID HERE. WHAT NEW YORKERS DID BY THEIR ACTIONS AND THEIR SACRIFICE. THEY SAVED LIVES. THEY SAVED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF LIVES. BECAUSE THAT PROJECTION OF WHAT THE VIRUS WAS SUPPOSED TO DO WAS MUCH, MUCH WORSE THAN WHAT IT WOUND UP DOING. WE ARE MAKING REAL PROGRESS, NO DOUBT. BUT THERE’S ALSO NO DOUBT THERE IS NO TIME TO GET COCKY, ARROGANT. THIS VIRUS HAS DECEASED US EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. WE HAVE BEEN BEHIND THIS VIRUS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. AND IT STILL SURPRISES US. WE THOUGHT INITIALLY THAT IT DIDN’T AFFECT CHILDREN. WE’RE NOW DEALING WITH AN ISSUE THAT IS VERY DISTURBING. WE HAVE ABOUT 100 CASES OF AN INFLAMMATORY DISEASE IN YOUNG CHILDREN THAT SEEMS TO BE CREATED BY THE COVID VIRUS. AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS JUST STARTING AND NEW YORK IS LEADING THE INVESTIGATION OF THIS SITUATION. THE SYMPTOMS OF THE CHILDREN ARE ANALYZED TO THE KAWASAKI DISEASE OR TOXIC SHOCK-LIKE SYNDROME. IT IS AN INFLAMMATION OF THE BLOOD VESSELS AND CAN AFFECT THE HEART. WE LOST THREE CHILDREN, 5-YEAR-OLD BOY, 7-YEAR-OLD BOY AND 18-YEAR-OLD GIRL. THE SYMPTOMS ARE ALL ACROSS THE BOARD AS YOU CAN SEE. LESS THAN 1-YEAR-OLD. PREDOMINANTLY 5 TO 14. BUT WE LOST A YOUNG LADY AT 18 YEARS OLD. AND WE HAVE SOME CASES UP TO 21 YEARS OLD. SO THIS IS A TRULY DISTURBING SITUATION. AND I KNOW PARENTS AROUND THE STATE AND AROUND THE COUNTRY ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS, AND THEY SHOULD BE. IF WE HAD THIS ISSUE IN NEW YORK, IT’S PROBABLY IN OTHER STATES. AND PROBABLY HASN’T BEEN DIAGNOSED YET IN OTHER STATES. BECAUSE, AGAIN, THESE CHILDREN DON’T PRESENT THE USUAL COVID SYMPTOMS. THEY’RE NOT RESPIRATORY SYMPTOMS. AND I THINK THAT’S ONE OF THE REASONS WHY PEOPLE HAVEN’T FOUND IT YET. BUT THEY KNOW WHAT THE SYMPTOMS ARE. IF YOUR CHILD HAS THE SYMPTOMS THAT THEY ARE SAYING OR ARE SYMPTOMS THAT SHOULD CAUSE AN ALERT, WE NEED PARENTS TO BE ADVISED. WE HAVE THE STATE DEPARTMENT HEALTH, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH THAT IS TELLING HOSPITALS AND MEDICAL PROVIDERS TO PRIORITIZE TESTING FOR THE COVID VIRUS FOR ANY CHILDREN THAT ARE DEMONSTRATING THESE SYMPTOMS. AT THE SAME TIME, WHILE WE’RE NOT COCKY OR ARROGANT, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT GETTING BACK TO WORK. WE TALK ABOUT NEW YORK BEING TOUGH, BUT THAT ALSO MEANS SMART. WE HAVE BEEN SMART ALL THROUGH THIS. LIEU AT WHERE WE ARE TODAY, THE CURVE IN NEW YORK, NEW YORK IS ON THE DECLINE. YOU TAKE NEW YORK OUT OF THE NUMBERS FOR THE REST OF THE NATION, THE NATION IS STILL ON THE INCLINE IN THE NUMBER OF CASES. SO WE HAVE BEEN SMART. WE GOT HIT WORST BECAUSE THE VIRUS WAS COMING THROUGH EUROPE AND NOBODY EVEN TOLD US. NOBODY EVEN KNEW. BUT WE TOOK THE WORST AND WE TURNED THE CURVE AND WE ARE — WE HAVE A BETTER CURVE NOW THAN YOU SEE IN MANY OTHER STATES AND CERTAINLY THE UNITED STATES AS A WHOLE. SO REOPENING, YES. BUT IT STILL MEANS WE HAVE TO BE SMART. WHAT DOES SMART MEAN? IT MEANS FOLLOWING THE CDC GUIDELINES, TO BEGIN WITH. FOLLOW THE DATA, FOLLOW THE SCIENCE. WE SAID THAT FROM DAY ONE. DON’T FALL SUBJECT TO EMOTION AND POLITICS. STAY WITH THE SCIENCE AND THE DATA. LISTEN TO DR. FAUCI. EVEN THIS MORNING HE SAID IF YOU DON’T FOLLOW THE CDC GUIDELINES, YOU RUN A REAL RISK OF TRIGGERING AN OUTBREAK THAT CAN GET OUT OF CONTROL. WHAT IS OUT OF CONTROL? OUT OF CONTROL IS WHEN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE INFECTED GOING INTO YOUR HOSPITAL SYSTEM OVERWHELMING YOUR HOSPITAL SYSTEM. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED IN ITALY. THAT WAS OUR GREAT FEAR HERE IN NEW YORK. BUT THAT IS A VERY REAL SITUATION THAT PEOPLE HAVE TO WATCH FROM. SMART MEANS LEARNING FROM THE MISTAKES OF OTHERS. WE’RE NOT THE FIRST ONES DOWN THIS PATH. STUDY WHAT CHINA DID AND SOUTH KOREA DID AND GERMANY DID. LOOK WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE OTHER STATES AND INFORM YOUR ACTIONS BY WHAT HAPPENED IN OTHER PLACES THAT WENT THROUGH THE SAME PROCESS. AND YOU’LL SEE MANY OF THE OTHER PLACES RUSHED REOPENING AND ACTUALLY HAD TO BACKTRACK AND THEN CLOSE AGAIN. THAT’S THE LAST THING THAT WE WOULD WANT HERE IN NEW YORK. SMART MEANS REGIONAL MANAGEMENT, LOCAL GOVERNMENT, MANAGED AND ENGAGED AND CITIZEN PARTICIPATION BECAUSE THIS ALL TURNS ON WHAT PEOPLE DO. THIS IS NOT ABOUT GOVERNMENT. GOVERNMENT CAN OFFER ADVICE AND SUGGESTIONS AND GUIDANCE. BUT IT’S ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE DO. WHY DID WE TURN THE CURVE IN NEW YORK? BECAUSE PEOPLE ACTED RESPONSIBLY AND INTELLIGENTLY. AND WE ALSO HAVE TO DO IT IN A WAY THAT IS TOTALLY TRANSPARENT. I WANT EVERY NEW YORKER TO KNOW ALL THE FACTS. BECAUSE IT’S UP TO NEW YORKERS. IT’S UP TO THE PEOPLE AND HOW THEY RESPOND, THEN GIVE THEM THE INFORMATION AND TRUST THEIR JUDGMENT. TRUST THEIR JUDGMENT. WHAT DID WE LEARN IN HERE? THAT WHEN PEOPLE ARE INFORMED OF FACTS THAT THEY ACTUALLY BELIEVE, WHICH IS SAYING SOMETHING, BUT IF YOU GIVE THEM THE REAL FACTS, THAT THEY BELIEVE THE REAL FACTS AND NOT POLITICAL FACTS, NOT PARTISAN FACTS, NOT SPIN, NOT HYPE, NOT SOME RHETORIC FROM A POLITICIAN WHO IS TRYING TO GET SOMETHING FOR THEMSELVES, IF YOU GIVE THEM THE REAL FACTS, THEY WILL RESPOND INTELLIGENTLY. BUT YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM THE REAL FACTS. AND THAT’S TRANSPARENCY. THAT’S WHAT SMART MEANS. AND THAT’S WHAT WE’RE DOING HERE IN NEW YORK. ALL THE FACTS ARE ON THE WEBSITE. ALL THE FACTS FOR YOUR REGION ARE ON THE WEBSITE. YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I KNOW. I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING MORE THAN I AM TELLING THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK. AND YOU CAN SEE THE CHANGES IN YOUR REGION, CAPITAL DISTRICT IN NEW YORK CHANGED OVERNIGHT. YOU CAN SEE THE CHANGES IN THE DIRECTION IN YOUR REGION. THEN WHAT ARE WE DOING? WE HAVE OUR HAND ON THE REOPENING VALVE. AND WE’RE TURNING THE REOPENING VALVE AND WE’RE STARTING TO REOPEN. BUT WE’RE CALIBRATING IT AND WE’RE MONITORING IT. RIGHT? THE FIRST MONITORING DEVICE IS THE DIAGNOSTIC TESTING. POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE. PEOPLE NEED TO GO. PEOPLE NEED TO BE TESTED. WE HAVE MORE TESTS THAN EVER. WE ARE TESTING MORE THAN ANY OTHER STATE IN THE UNITED STATES. WE HAVE COME UP TO SPEED FASTER THAN ANY OTHER STATE. PEOPLE HAVE TO TAKE THE STATE. WE HAVE IT AVAILABLE IN DRIVE-THROUGHS AND IN PHARMACIES. AND YOU WATCH THAT TESTING RATE DAY TO DAY TO SEE IF THE TESTING RATE IS GOING UP. MORE PEOPLE TESTING POSITIVE. THEN, ONCE YOU TEST, THEN COMES YOUR TRACING. THEN COMES YOUR ISOLATION OPERATION, ET CETERA. SECOND MONITORING DEVICE IS YOU ARE DOING ANTIBODY TESTING. THE ANTIBODY TESTING TELLS YOU HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD THE VIRUS AND HAVE RECOVERED FROM THE VIRUS. THERE’S A LITTLE LAG IN THE ANTIBODY TESTING BECAUSE IT’S REALLY TELLING YOU WHO WAS INFECTED TWO WEEKS AGO OR TWO AND A HALF WEEKS AGO. BUT IF YOU SEE THAT NUMBER GOING UP, YOU KNOW MORE PEOPLE HAVE GONE INFECTED. YOU THEN HAVE THE HOSPITALIZATION RATE, WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT. YOU KNOW EVERY DAY NOW, BECAUSE OF THE SYSTEM WE PUT IN PLACE, HOW MANY PEOPLE WALKED INTO A HOSPITAL WITH COVID. WATCH THAT HOSPITALIZATION RATE. IF YOU SEE THAT HOSPITALIZATION RATE GOING UP, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM. AND WATCH THE HOSPITALIZATION RATE IN TERMS OF THE CAPACITY OF THE HOSPITALS. THAT’S WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH FOR THE PAST TWO MONTHS. WE’VE SAID YOU HAVE TO HAVE A 30% BUFFER IN THE CAPACITY OF HOSPITALS. SO IF THAT INFECTION SPIKES YOU HAVE A 30% BUFFER IN TERMS OF CAPACITY. BUT WATCH THAT HOSPITALIZATION RATE. AND THEY WILL THEN GIVE YOU THE INFECTION RATE. THE RT. THEY WILL TELL YOU — THOSE GAUGES WILL TELL YOU THE RATE OF TRANSMISSION ONE PERSON TO ANOTHER PERSON. AND IF ONE PERSON IS INFECTING MORE THAN ONE OTHER PERSON, 1.1, THAT’S THE OUTBREAK THAT DR. FAUCI WAS TALKING ABOUT. AND YOU CAN COMPUTE THESE RATES. YOU CAN MONITOR EXACTLY WHAT YOU’RE DOING. THERE IS A SCIENCE TO THIS. AND THERE’S A METHODOLOGY TO THIS THAT ERASES ALL THE THEORIES, RIGHT? EVERYBODY HAS A THEORY. I THINK THIS. I THINK THAT. I THINK WARM WEATHER IS GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I THINK GOD IS GOING TO DO SOMETHING. EVERYBODY HAS A THEORY. TELL ME THE FACTS. TELL ME THE NUMBERS. AND THAT’S WHAT I WANT TO TELL THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE. AND RESPOND TO THE FACTS. LOCAL REGION THEN MANAGES THE SYSTEM. THEY MONITOR THOSE NUMBERS WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. THEY CONTROL THAT VALVE. THEY MAKE SURE BUSINESSES ARE IMPLYING WITH THE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS WHEN THE BUSINESSES GO BACK. EVERY BUSINESS WILL SAY DON’T WORRY, DON’T WORRY, I WILL HAVE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS, I WILL SOCIALLY DISTANT. I’LL GIVE EQUIPMENT. ARE WE ACTUALLY DOING THAT? ARE WE STAYING AWAY FROM LARGE GATHERINGS? ARE WE MAKING SURE? THAT’S UP TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT. AND THEN BUILT IN IS A CIRCUIT BREAKER THAT WHEN THOSE GAUGES HIT RED, TURN OFF THE VALVE. HOPEFUL LIVE YOU DON’T GET TO THAT POINT BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN MONITORING AND YOU CALIBRATE AND YOU ADJUST THE VALVE A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME. BUT WORST-CASE SCENARIO, YOU TURN OFF THE VALVE. THAT’S WHAT OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE HAD TO DO WHEN THEY OPEN THAT REOPENING TOO QUICKLY. MORE OF THE STATE HAD THIS ACCURATE OR TRANSPARENT A MONITORING MECHANISM. BUT I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR COMMUNITY DAY TO DAY. BECAUSE YOU ARE THE ONES WHO ARE DETERMINING WHAT HAPPENS IN YOUR COMMUNITY. NOBODY ELSE. NO GOVERNOR. NO SENATOR. NO ELECTED OFFICIAL. IT’S WHAT PEOPLE DO. IT’S WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS DO. THE REGIONAL CONTROL GROUP ARE THE TOP ELECTED OFFICIALS, ACADEMIC OFFICIALS, TOP HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS IN THAT REGION, IN THAT COMMUNITY. AND THEY’RE THE ONES WHO ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE IT WORK. BUT THIS WILL BE ONLINE EVERY MORNING OR EVERY DAY. AND EVERYONE CAN SEE EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING LITERALLY DAY TO DAY. NO OTHER STATE HAS THIS SYSTEM. NO OTHER STATE IS AS TRANSPARENT. NO OTHER STATE IS GATHERING LOCAL DATA SO IT CAN PRESENT DATA STATEWIDE EVERY DAY. WE’RE DOING IT BECAUSE THE SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS HAS BEEN EXACTLY THIS. THE SECRET OF OUR SUCCESS, THE ONE THING I DID RIGHT WAS COMMUNICATE TO PEOPLE AND TRUST PEOPLE THAT WITH THE RIGHT INFORMATION THEY WILL MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS. THIS IS THE MOST ADVANCED WAY IN THE NATION TO GIVE PEOPLE, TO GIVE CITIZENS THE INFORMATION THEY NEED TO LEAD THEIR LIVES CORRECTLY. AND THAT WILL BE ONLINE IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. BUT FRIDAY IS MAY 15th, THE OPENING DATE. AND THIS WILL BE ONLINE — SMARTLY, RIGHT. WE ALL HAVE HEARD WASHINGTON SAY MANY, MANY TIMES, THE GOVERNORS ARE IN CHARGE OF REOPENING. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. SO THE GOVERNORS ARE IN CHARGE OF REOPENING. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THE STATES ARE ON THEIR OWN, THE GOVERNORS ARE ON THEIR OWN. WE NEED FEDERAL HELP. WE NEED FEDERAL ASSISTANCE. THEY’RE TALKING ABOUT PASSING A PIECE OF LEGISLATION IN WASHINGTON THIS WEEK. IT HAS TO BE A SMART PIECE OF LEGISLATION THIS TIME. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? NO HANDOUTS TO GREEDY CORPORATIONS. NO POLITICAL PORK. AND NO PARTISANSHIP. SOMETIMES — THERE HAS TO BE A TIME IN HISTORY WHEN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS WILLING TO STOP PLAYING PARTISAN POLITICS. AND IF IT’S NOT THROUGH THIS EXPERIENCE, THROUGH THIS CRISIS, IT WILL NEVER BE. THAT’S THE FIRST DEFINITION OF SMART FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. THE BILL HAS TO FUND STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. IT HAS TO FUND WORKING FAMILIES. IT HAS TO FUND STATE TESTING AND TRACING. EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT TESTING AND TRACING. IT’S UP TO TESTING AND TRACING. IT IS. NO ONE HAS DONE IT BEFORE. NO STATE HAS THIS TESTING CAPACITY. NO STATE HAS THIS TRACING CAPACITY. WE HAVE TO BUILD IT. WE CAN DO IT, BUT IT’S A HECK OF A LOGISTICAL ENDEAVOR. AND WE NEED FUNDING TO DO IT. AND WE NEED A REAL ECONOMICAL STIMULUS. THIS ECONOMY HAS BEEN DAMAGED THROUGH NO FAULT OF ANYONE BUT THE CORONAVIRUS. BUT TO GET THIS ECONOMY BACK UP AND RUNNING WE ARE GOING TO NEED AN INTELLIGENT STIMULUS BILL FROM WASHINGTON. WHEN I SAY NO PORK BARREL, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? WHEN THEY PASS A PIECE OF LEGISLATION IN WASHINGTON, EVERY SENATOR SEES IT AS THEIR OPPORTUNITY TO BRING HOME BACON TO THEIR STATE. THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE OUT THE COVID VIRUS AND REPAIRING DAMAGE FROM THE COVID VIRUS. KEEP IT ABOUT THE COVID VIRUS. LAST BILL WHEN THEY DID IT, THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT PROVIDING MONEY TO STATES THAT DIDN’T HAVE A MAJOR COVID PROBLEM. THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT BUILDING A NEW STATE CAPITOL IN SOME STATES BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH COVID CASES TO JUSTIFY THE FEDERAL ALLOCATION, SO THEY WERE LOOKING FOR WAYS TO SPEND THE MONEY. HOW LUDICROUS IS THAT, RIGHT? THIS IS SOMEBODY’S MONEY. THIS IS THE TAXPAYERS’ MONEY. THEY WORKED HARD. THEY’RE WILLING TO HELP SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF COVID, BUT KEEP IT ABOUT THE COVID VIRUS. SECOND, I UNDERSTAND BUSINESSES NEED TO ROFR. THIS DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A GIVEAWAY TO THE RICH MILLIONAIRES WHO ARE DOING JUST FINE ANYWAY. AND IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A GIVEAWAY TO BIG BUSINESS. IT SHOULDN’T BE THAT ANOTHER EPISODE IN HISTORY WHERE SOMEHOW THE RICH FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GET MORE ASSISTANCE WHEN IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT HELPING AVERAGE AMERICANS. AND THAT’S THE PEOPLE WHO REALLY NEED HELP HERE, ARE THE WORKING FAMILIES, THE FAMILIES THAT GO PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK. THEY’RE THE ONES WHO ARE STRUGGLING. AND THE ESSENTIAL WORKERS WHO HAVE BEEN SO GREAT FOR SO LONG. POLICE OFFICERS, FIREFIGHTERS, NURSES, SCHOOL TEACHERS, THE PEOPLE WHO LITERALLY NEED FOOD. I HAVE PEOPLE LITERALLY SAYING I NEED FOOD TO FEED MY FAMILY. WE HAVE UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND AT FOOD BANKS. THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO REAM NEED HELP. AND THOSE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO THE STATE GOVERNMENT FUNDS. NEW YORK STATE, WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR ECONOMY. WE KNOW WHAT OUR BUDGET LOOKS LIKE. WE NEED $61 BILLION IN FEDERAL SUPPORT OR WE WILL WIND UP AGGRAVATING THE SITUATION. BECAUSE WHEN YOU DON’T FUND THE STATE, WHO DOES THE STATE FUND? THE STATE FUNDS SCHOOLS, LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, AND HOSPITALS. YOU REALLY WANT NEW YORK STATE TO TURN AROUND AND HAVE TO CUT SCHOOLS AND CUT LOCAL GOVERNMENTS? YOU KNOW WHO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS ARE? THAT’S POLICE, FIREFIGHTERS. YOU WANT ME TO GET HOSPITALS? HOSPITALS ARE THE NURSES AND THE DOCTORS WHO JUST GOT US THROUGH THIS, AND EVERYONE CELEBRATES AS HEROES. IF YOU DON’T FUND THE STATE, THAT’S WHO YOU’RE CUTTING IN TERMS OF FINANCES. NOW, THIS IS NOT A REDDISH, BLUE ISSUE. YES, I’M A DEMOCRAT. BUT THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS. I HAVE DEMOCRATS AND I HAVE REPUBLICANS IN MY STATES. I HAVE INDEPENDENTS, SHORT PEOPLE, TALL PEOPLE. NEW YORK, WE HAVE EVERYTHING. IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE AN EFFECTIVE STATEWIDE LEADER, FORGET RED AND BLUE. IT DOES NOT WORK. AND EVERY STATE, RED STATES, BLUE STATES, THEY ALL NEED FUNDING. YOU PUT THE GOVERNORS IN CHARGE, THE STATES ARE HEADING THE REOPENING. THEY NEED FUNDS TO DO IT. THERE IS AN ORGANIZATION CALLED THE NATIONAL GOVERNORS ASSOCIATION, NGA. DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS. IT’S HEADED BY A REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR, GOVERNOR HOGAN. I’M THE VICE CHAIRMAN. I’M A DEMOCRAT. WE’RE DOING A JOINT STATEMENT TODAY SAYING STATES NEED FUNDING. AND NOT PORK BARREL FUNDING AND NOT FUNDING THAT FLOWS THROUGH THE STATES BUT GETS TO THEIR SPECIAL INTEREST. THAT’S NOT WHAT WE WANT. WE WANT FUNDING TO ALLOW US TO DO OUR JOB. DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS WORKING TOGETHER ARE GOING TO MAKE THIS STATEMENT. AND WASHINGTON SHOULD LISTEN. THE FEDERAL BILL SHOULD ALSO BE RESPONSIVE TO WORKING FAMILIES. WHAT ARE THE PROBLEMS THAT WORKING FAMILIES ARE FACING THEY COME TO ME WITH? I CAN’T PAY MY RENT. I CAN’T PAY MY MORTGAGE. I’M AFRAID THAT ONCE THIS FORBEARANCE ENDS, THE BANK WILL SEND ME THREE MONTHS WORTH OF MORTGAGE PAYMENTS. I’M NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO PAY IT. I’M AFRAID ONCE THIS FORBEARANCE ENDS, I’M GOING TO GET A BILL FOR THREE MONTHS OF BACK RENT, AND I CAN’T PAY IT AND I’M GOING TO BE EVICTED. THAT’S WHAT REAL FAMILIES ARE TALKING ABOUT NOW. THEY’RE AFRAID THEY ARE NOT GOING TO GET THEIR JOB BACK. THE FUNERAL COSTS FOR FAMILIES, FUNERAL COSTS ARE DEVASTATING. THAT’S REALITY FOR WORKING FAMILIES. AND YOU HAVE HOMEOWNERS IN THIS STATE AND MANY OF THE STATES AFFECTED BY COVID, MASSACHUSETTS, NEW JERSEY, CALIFORNIA, MICHIGAN. SAME STATES THAT HAVE THE COVID PROBLEM THAT JUST HAD AN ADDITIONAL TAX FROM WASHINGTON WHEN THEY REPEALED WHAT’S CALLED SALT, STATE AND LOCAL TAX DEDUCTION. INCIDENT WAS A THEFT BY WASHINGTON TO INCREASE TAXES ON CERTAIN STATES, NEW YORK IS ONE OF THEM, MASSACHUSETTS IS ONE, CALIFORNIA IS ONE. AND IT HURT HOMEOWNERS. BECAUSE YOU CAN’T DEDUCT YOUR STATE AND LOCAL TAXES ANY MORE. IT WAS PUNITIVE. INCIDENT WAS POLITICAL. IT WAS WRONG. YOU WANT TO HELP TAXPAYERS, HOMEOWNERS, THE PLACES THAT WERE HIT BY COVID? REPEAL SALT. AND THAT’S WHAT SHOULD BE DONE IN THIS BILL. AND YOU ALSO HAVE TO FUND STATE TESTING AND TRACING. WE CAN PUT TOGETHER THE OPERATION. IT’S NOT GOING TO BE EASY. IT IS GOING TO ENTAIL THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN THIS STATE TO TEST AND TRACE. BUT WE NEED FUNDING FROM WASHINGTON TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN. AND IF YOU WANT TO BE CREATIVE AND AGGRESSIVE AND SMART, WHICH IS WHAT WE NEED MORE THAN EVER, THE BILL SHOULDN’T JUST REOPEN AMERICA. NOW IS A CHANCE TO ACTUALLY REIMAGINE AMERICA, OKAY? YOU NEED TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY. YOU NEED TO CREATE JOBS. YOU NEED TO GET PEOPLE BACK TO WORK. NOW IS THE TIME TO INVEST IN BUILDING AND REBUILDING. INVEST IN PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE. BUILD AIRPORTS, BRIDGES, MASS TRANSIT, BUILD THE PUBLIC HEALTH INFRASTRUCTURE SO WE CAN HANDLE A SITUATION LIKE THIS NEXT TIME. THE INVESTMENT OF PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE IS LONG OVERDUE. THEY TALKED ABOUT THIS FOR YEARS. THERE ARE DOZENS AND DOZENS OF REPORTS THAT WILL TALK ABOUT THE BAD SHAPE OF OUR ROADS AND OUR BRIDGES AND HOW BAD OUR AIRPORTS ARE COMPARED TO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS AND OUR — — BUILT A NEW AIRPORT IN THE COUNTRY IN 25 YEARS. WHILE ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES ARE BUILDING NEW AIRPORTS. EVERY PRESIDENT, DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICANS, THEY HAVE ALL SAID THE SAME THING. OUR PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE IS CRUMBLING. WE NEED TO CREATE JOBS. WE SHOULD INVEST IN PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE. NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT. AND IF NOT NOW, WHEN? IF YOU CAN’T AGREE ON A STIMULUS FOR THE ECONOMY TO REBUILD THIS COUNTRY TODAY, WHEN ARE YOU EVER GOING TO DO IT? AND LAST POINT ON THIS, NO BAILOUT BOONDOGGLES. DO NOT BETRAY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AGAIN. WHY DO I SAY AGAIN? BECAUSE I WENT THROUGH THE 2008 BAILOUT, WHICH WAS THE BAILOUT FOR THE BANKS AFTER THE MORTGAGE CRISIS. I WENT THROUGH THAT. AND THEY BAILED OUT THE BANKS. YOU KNOW WHAT THE BANKS DID, THEY GAVE IT TO THEIR EMPLOYEES AND THEY GOT RICH. AND YOU KNOW WHO PAID THE BILL? THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER PAID THE BILL. AND THE HOMEOWNER PAID THE BILL WHEN THE EQUITY IN THEIR HOME DISAPPEARED OVERNIGHT. AND EVERYBODY SAID, OH, WE CAN’T LET THE BANKS FAIL. WITH HE CAN’T LET THE BANKS FAIL. SO THE TAXPAYERS HAD TO BAIL OUT THE BANKS. AND THE BANKS TURNED AROUND AND GAVE BONUSES TO THEIR EXECUTIVES. I KNOW BECAUSE I WAS THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NEW YORK AT THE TIME. I HAD TO TRY TO CLEAN UP THE MESS. I HAD TO GO AFTER THE BANKS FOR THE BAILOUT THAT WASHINGTON GAVE THEM THAT THEY WERE GIVING IN MULTIMILLION DOLLAR BONUSES TO THEIR EXECUTIVES. THE SAME EXECUTIVES WHO HAD CREATED THE MORTGAGE SCAMS IN THE FIRST PLACE. DON’T DO IT AGAIN. AND I’LL TELL YOU TODAY WHAT THE NEW SCAM IS GOING TO BE. THE NEW SCAM IS GOING TO BE THESE CORPORATIONS ARE GOING TO USE THIS PANDEMIC TO LAY OFF WORKERS. THAT IS WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO DO. THEY’RE ALREADY SAYING IT. THEY DO THESE ANALYST CALLS WHERE THEY TELL THE ANALYSTS WHY THEIR STOCK VALUE IS GOING TO GO UP. AND WHAT THEY’RE SAYING IS WE’RE NOT GOING TO REHIRE THE SAME AMOUNT OF WORKERS. WE’RE GOING TO REHIRE FEWER WORKERS. OUR PROFIT MARGIN GOES UP. OUR DIVIDEND GOES UP, OUR STOCK VALUE GOES UP. YEAH. EXCEPT THE AMERICAN WORKERS ARE LEFT ON THE BEACH. THAT’S WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO. MARK MY WORDS TODAY. AND I WANT TO PROPOSE A LAW THAT IS VERY SIMPLE. AMERICANS FIRST. AMERICANS FIRST. NOT AMERICA FIRST. AMERICANS FIRST. PROTECT THE WORKER. CORPORATION WANTS A BAILOUT? CORPORATION WANTS MONEY? FINE. BUT IF YOU DO NOT REHIRE THE SAME NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES, GIVE THE MONEY BACK. IF YOU DO NOT REHIRE THE SAME NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES, NO GOVERNMENT GIFT AND BAILOUT FOR YOU. THAT’S THE AMERICANS FIRST LAW. VERY SIMPLE BUT UNDENIABLE. I’VE SPOKEN TO A NUMBER OF MEMBERS OF THE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION FOR NEW YORK. THEY’RE GOING TO PROPOSE THE AMERICANS FIRST LAW. NO BAILOUTBOONDOGGLES. I HAVE ALSO SPOKEN TO THE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION ABOUT WHAT I JUST TALKED TO YOU ABOUT, WHAT WE NEED IN THIS BILL WITH THE STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS NEED, WHAT WORKING FAMILIES NEED. AND I BELIEVE OUR DELEGATION ACTUALLY HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEAD THE WAY. SO IT’S NOT JUST NEW YORK. THAT’S TOUGH, SMART, UNITED, DISCIPLINED, AND LOVING. BUT WE HAVE A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT GIVES US A UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THAT IS TOUGH, SMART, UNITED, DISCIPLINED AND LOVING. LET ME LEAVE YOU WITH ONE POINT OF PERSONAL OPINION. YESTERDAY — PERSONAL OPINION. SO IT’S WORTH WHAT YOU PAY FOR IT. SINCE YOU’RE NOT PAYING FOR IT, EASY. YESTERDAY I WENT FOR A WALK WITH MY DAUGHTER. I HAD TO TAKE THE DOG FOR A WALK. EVEN THE DOG IS GETTING A LITTLE OUT OF SORTS. I THINK HE HAS COVID VIRUS HIMSELF, THE DOG. SO WE TAKE THE DOG FOR A WALK WITH MY DAUGHTER MAKAYLA, SHE’S 22 YEARS OLD. WE’RE GOING FOR A WALK. EVERYBODY IS WEARING MASKS. A LOT OF PEOPLE WEARING GLOVES WHICH IS SMART. ONE FELLOW SAID I WEAR THE GLOVES BECAUSE WHEN I WEAR THE GLOVES, I DON’T TOUCH MY FACE AS MUCH, WHICH IS INTERESTING. BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT TO TOUCH YOUR FACE, RIGHT? YOU DON’T WANT TO TOUCH YOUR MOUTH, NOSE, YOUR EYES EVEN. SO IT’S A PLEASANT DAY, GOING FOR A PLEASANT WALK. WE COME ACROSS ONE FELLOW WHO IS NOT WEARING A MASK. AND I SAID SOMETHING TO THE GENTLEMAN ABOUT THE MASK. WE STARTED TO HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT WEARING MASKS AND NOT WEARING MASKS. AND WE WERE IN A LITTLE BIT OF A DISAGREEMENT. AND THE SITUATION — THE CONVERSATION GOT A LITTLE TENSE, SO I STOPPED THE CONVERSATION BECAUSE OTHERWISE I WOULD GET A LECTURE FROM MY 22-YEAR-OLD MAKAYLA. I DON’T LECTURE MAKAYLA. MAKAYLA DOES LECTURE ME. SO I LET IT ALONE. AND WE FINISHED THE WALK. INCIDENT WAS ALL VERY NICE. NOT THAT SHE GAVE ME ANY CREDIT FOR LEAVING THE CONVERSATION ALONE. BUT I DID WANT TO MAKE A POINT TO THAT GENTLEMAN THAT I DIDN’T GET TO MAKE, BUT IT’S SORT OF A UNIVERSAL POINT. PEOPLE SEND ME MASKS NOW. AND SOME REALLY BEAUTIFUL MASKS. SOME ARE PERSONALIZED. THIS ONE SAYS GOVERNOR CUOMO. IT WAS MADE FOR ME. SOME SAY NEW YORK TOUGH. BEAUTIFUL COLORS. I HAVE MASKS SENT TO ME FROM SPORTS TEAMS. I HAVE BUFFALO BILLS MASK. I HAVE A GIANTS, JETS, METS, YANKEES MASK. THIS ONE SENT TO ME SAYS E PLUIBUS UNUM. OUT OF MANY, ONE. IT DOES SAY SOMETHING. IT DOESN’T HAVE WORDS BUT IT MAKES A STATEMENT. WHEN YOU WEAR A MASK YOU SAY, I RESPECT YOU. THAT’S WHAT THE MASK SAYS TO EVERYONE YOU WALK PAST. I RESPECT YOU. I RESPECT YOU. I RESPECT YOUR HEALTH. I RESPECT YOUR PRIVACY. I RESPECT YOUR SPACE. I RESPECT YOU. I CAN DO ANYTHING I WANT WITH MYSELF. THIS IS AMERICA. BUT I RESPECT YOU. AND OUT OF RESPECT FOR YOU, I WEAR THIS MASK. THIS MASK SAYS I RESPECT THE NURSES AND THE DOCTORS WHO KILLED THEMSELVES THROUGH THIS VIRUS TO SAVE OTHER PEOPLE. AND I RESPECT THE NURSES AND THE DOCTORS, SO I’M NOT GOING TO INFECT ANYONE OR ALLOW ANYONE ELSE TO BE INFECTED UNNECESSARILY. SO I DON’T CAUSE MORE STRESS ON THE NURSES AND THE DOCTORS. THIS MASK SAYS I RESPECT THE ESSENTIAL WORKERS. WHO GET UP EVERY DAY AND DRIVE THE BUS OR DRIVE THE TRAIN OR DELIVER THE FOOD OR KEEP THE LIGHTS ON SO THAT I CAN STAY HOME AND I CAN STAY SAFE. IT SAYS I RESPECT OTHERS. AND I RESPECT YOU. AND THAT IS THE STATEMENT THAT WE SHOULD ALL BE WILLING TO MAKE ANY DAY. BUT ESPECIALLY IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS. YES, I WANT INDIVIDUALS TO BE INFORMED SO THEY MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION. BUT IT’S ABOUT US AT THE END OF THE DAY, RIGHT? IT’S A MIND-SET THAT SAYS IT’S NOT ABOUT ME. IT’S ABOUT WE. AND WE HAVE RECIPROCAL RESPONSIBILITIES AND A COLLECTIVE AND A MUTUAL ALITY THAT SAYS I’M GOING TO RESPECT YOU AND HELP YOU AND YOU’RE GOING TO HELP ME AND RESPECT ME. THAT’S HOW YOU BATTLE COMMUNITY SPREAD, WITH COMMUNITY UNITY. THAT’S WHAT THE MASK SAYS. THANK YOU. QUESTIONS?>>GOVERNOR CUOMO, YOU MENTIONED THAT NEW YORK — REOPENING MAY 15th FOR PHASE ONE. ANY KIND OF DIRECTION ON THE CRITERIA NEEDED TO MOVE FORWARD TO PHASE TWO OR ANY KIND OF TIMELINE AS TO ENTERING NEW PHASES?>>IT’S ALWAYS THE SAME. YOU START REOPENING THAT VALVE. I KEEP COMING BACK TO THE VALVE. I’M LIKE A VISUAL PERSON. START REOPENING THE VALVE. THAT’S PHASE ONE. WATCH THOSE GAUGES. WATCH THOSE GAUGES. THOSE GAUGES STAY DOWN, OPEN THE VALVE MORE. IT’S CALIBRATION.>>WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT CLOSING THE VALVE, SAY WE MAKE IT TO PHASE TWO AND WE START TO SEE INFECTION RATES GO UP AGAIN. DO YOU TURN IT BACK TO PHASE ONE OR BACK TO EVERYTHING?>>WELL, IF YOU ARE CALIBRATING THE REOPENING AND YOU’RE WATCHING THE GAUGES CAREFULLY AND YOU’RE DILIGENT, AND THIS IS A RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AND THE REGIONS AND YOU’RE DOING COMPLIANCE AND PEOPLE ARE WEARING THEIR MASKS AND YOU’RE WATCHING WHAT YOU’RE DOING, YOU SHOULD NEVER GET TO A PLACE WHERE THOSE NEEDLES GO INTO THE RED. CLOSING IS — MEANS YOU REOPENED TOO FAST, RIGHT? THAT’S WHAT OTHERS HAVE DONE, WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE A MISTAKE. BECAUSE YOU — THE LAST THING YOU WANT TO DO IS OPEN TO CLOSE AND THEN TO HAVE TO CALIBRATE THE REOPENING ON THE SECOND TIME. SO JUST CALIBRATE INTELLIGENTLY THE REOPENING. HOPEFULLY YOU NEVER HAVE TO CLOSE AGAIN. AND THEN YOU CALIBRATE THE ACTIVITY TO KEEP THOSE MARGINS AT A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN MANAGE THEM.>>GOVERNOR, ONE — TO YOUR INSTITUTION THAT HAS BEEN STRUGGLING IS MAINE, WHICH ISSUED A WARN NOTICE RECENTLY. WHAT CAN THE STATE DO TO HELP MAINS A MAJOR EMPLOYER IN THE AREA?>>WE WILL WORK WITH ANY EMPLOYER ON HOW TO ADOPT SOCIAL DISTANCING PRECAUTIONS, WHICH IS NOT A LOT OF MYSTERY TO HOW DO YOU KEEP PEOPLE SEPARATED, HOW TO KEEP PEOPLE WITH THE RIGHT PPE, STAY AWAY FROM GATHERINGS, NO CAFETERIA, NO LARGE MEETINGS. BUT WE WILL WORK WITH EMPLOYERS TO DO THAT. YOUR LOCAL LEADERS WILL WORK WITH EMPLOYERS TO DO THAT. IT’S ALL ABOUT JOBS AND KEEPING JOBS AND CREATING JOBS. SO ANYTHING WE CAN DO, WE WILL DO.>>GOVERNOR, YOU TALKED ABOUT — PHASED PENALTIES OR FINES IF THEY OPEN TOO SOON? WE ARE GETTING REPORTS ABOUT A GYM IN THE ALBANY AREA POSSIBLY REOPENING WITHOUT THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS IN PLACE?>>YEAH. THAT’S GOING TO BE UP TO THE LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT, ET CETERA, TO ENFORCE. EVERY COUNTY HAS A HEALTH DEPARTMENT. CITIES HAVE HEALTH DEPARTMENTS. SO THEY WILL HAVE TO ENFORCE THOSE RULES. BOTH WHO SHOULD BE OPEN, WHO SHOULD NOT BE OPENED, AND THOSE WHO OPENED, ARE THEY IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE CONDITIONS OF REOPENING. THAT IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE DONE AT THE LOCAL LEVEL. BUT, YES, THAT’S THE LAW. SO THEY JUST HAVE TO ENFORCE THE LAW.>>THANK YOU. IS NEW YORK SETTING UP A SYSTEM IN POSSIBILITY OF A SECOND WAVE?>>WE LIVE IN FEAR OF A SECOND WAVE. DO YOU SEE THESE LINES? THESE ARE FROM TWO SOURCES. FIRST, MY DAUGHTER’S. SECOND, THE FEAR OF THE COVID SECOND WAVE. LOOK, WE ARE — WE HAVE HEARD PEOPLE SAY THERE COULD BE A SECOND WAVE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? I’M NOT EVEN SURE. ONE THEORY IÑ THE VIRUS. RIGHT? BUT THAT IS A POSSIBILITY. BUT JUST THINK OF IT AS A POSSIBILITY OF A SECOND WAVE BECAUSE YOU REOPENED TOO QUICKLY AND PEOPLE GET TOO CASUAL TOO QUICKLY. AND THE VIRUS COMES BACK AND REARS ITS HEAD. THAT’S WUHAN. WUHAN ALSO — YOU KNOW, WE KEEP TALKING ABOUT GOVERNMENT, GOVERNMENT, GOVERNMENT. THIS IS NOT A GOVERNMENT CONTROL ISSUE. IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER WHAT LAWS WE PUT OUT. BECAUSE GOVERNMENT CAN’T ENFORCE ANY OF THESE LAWS, RIGHT? WE HAVE A REGULATION. YOU MUST WEAR A MASK. HOW DO I MAKE 19 MILLION PEOPLE WEAR A MASK? I CAN’T. I COULDN’T MAKE THAT ONE FELLOW WHO I RAN INTO WEAR A MASK, RIGHT? PLUS, I DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE THE CONVERSATION WITH MY DAUGHTER. I DIDN’T WANT TO GET INTO A STRESSFUL SITUATION. BUT IT’S UP TO PEOPLE. IT’S UP TO PEOPLE. I BELIEVE. IF I GIVE THEM THE INFORMATION AND THE FACTS. WE ARE GOING TO REOPEN. YES, REOPENING IS A PROCESS DRIVEN BY PEOPLE AND THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PEOPLE. IF THEY WEAR THE MASKS, IF THEY SOCIALLY DISTANCE, IF THEY TAKE PRECAUTIONS, IF THEY WASH THEIR HANDS, THINK OF THIS. THE INFECTION RATE OF THE NURSES AND EMERGENCY ROOM WORKERS IS LOWER THAN THE INFECTION RATE AMONG THE GENERAL POPULATION. HOW CAN THAT POSSIBLY BE? HOW CAN YOU HAVE EMERGENCY WORKERS, EVEN EMS WORKERS, WHO SHOW UP ON THE SCENE, DEAL DIRECTLY WITH THE PERSON WHO IS COVID POSITIVE, PUTS THEM ON A STRETCHER, BRINGS THEM INTO AN AMBULANCE, GOES INTO A HOSPITAL. THEY TREAT THE PERSON. THEY’RE DOING IVs. THEY’RE UNDRESSING, DRESSING THE PERSON. THEIR INFECTION RATE IS LOWER? YES. BECAUSE OF THIS. IT WORKS. IT WORKS. WHAT DO YOU THINK, A NURSE OR A DOCTOR HAVE SUPER FANCY SPACE SUITS? THEY DON’T. THEY ARE WEARING SURGICAL MASKS, N-95 MASKS. MANY WEAR FACE SHIELD IN FRONT. AND A TKPOUPB. GOWN. AND THE GOWN IS MADE OF THIS. IF IT WORKS IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM, IT’S GOING TO WORK FOR YOU. SO IF PEOPLE FOLLOW THE PRECAUTIONS, YES, YOU WILL SEE A REOPENING AND YOU’LL SEE AN INFECTION RATE THAT DOES NOT GROW DRAMATICALLY. BUT IT’S UP TO PEOPLE.>>GOVERNOR, YOU TALK ABOUT MONITORING THE METRICS TO DETERMINE WHEN YOU CAN ENTER THAT NEXT PHASE. IS THERE A MINIMUM TIME THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE PUT IN PLACE TO ALLOW REGIONS TO MONITOR THE METRICS? I KNOW THERE WAS TALKS OF MAYBE 14 DAYS BETWEEN PHASES TO ALLOW THEM TO DO SO?>>THE 14 DAYS IS A PRELIMINARY ESTIMATE BETWEEN PHASES. WHY 14 DAYS? THAT IS THE PERIOD OF TIME WHERE IF YOU HAVE AN INFECTION OUTBREAK, YOU WILL KNOW IT IN 14 DAYS, RIGHT? IT’S NOT LIKE YOU GET INFECTED TODAY AND TOMORROW WE KNOW. YOU GET INFECTED TODAY, THE VIRUS MAY TAKE A FEW DAYS IN YOUR SYSTEM WHERE IT STARTS TO REALLY ACT. TWO, THREE, FOUR DAYS. A COUPLE OF DAYS YOU THINK YOU’RE SOMETHING FUNNY, YOU DIDN’T SLEEP WELL. SO 14 DAYS, YOU’LL KNOW. BECAUSE YOU GOT INFECTED, THE VIRUS MANIFESTED ITSELF. IF YOU GET SERIOUSLY ILL, YOU WIND UP IN A HOSPITAL. THAT TAKES ABOUT 14 DAYS. BUT YOU CAN WATCH IT ALL ALONG. AND IF THOSE RATES ARE STAYING LOW, COULD YOU ACCELERATE THE 14 DAYS? THEORETICALLY, YES. IF THE TESTING IS NOT MOVING, YOU’RE NOT GETTING MORE POSITIVES, NEGATIVES, ANTIBODY TESTING IS NOT MOVING, NOT GETTING ANY NEW HOSPITALIZATION INCREASES, WELL, SOMETHING HAD TO MOVE IF YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE A PROBLEM. YOUR TESTING HAD TO START TO MOVE, RIGHT? SOMETHING HAD TO MOVE. IF NOTHING IS MOVING, THEN YOU COULD SAY WE’RE IN GOOD SHAPE, LET’S ACCELERATE.>>GOVERNOR, AS FAR AS NURSING HOMES AND LONG-TERM CARE FACILITIES YOU SAID ALL EMPLOYEES NEED TO BE TESTED TWICE A WEEK. IN BROOME COUNTY, THERE ARE 2,000 EMPLOYEES IN THIS COUNTY THAT FALL UNDER THAT. THAT’S 4,000 TESTS. RIGHT NOW THE COUNTY RECEIVES 1,600 TESTS A WEEK FROM YOUR OFFICE. WHERE IS THE DIFFERENCE IN TESTING GOING TO BE MADE UP FOR AND WHERE SHOULD THEY EXPECT THOSE TESTS TO COME FROM?>>YEAH. LOOK, THE — THEY SHOULD — WHATEVER YOU DO, PEOPLE COMPLAIN. NURSING HOMES ARE OBVIOUSLY A TOP PRIORITY. WE PUT A LOT OF PRECAUTIONS IN ON NURSING HOMES. EVERYTHING THAT WE COULD. THINGS THAT I DID NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE DOING. NO VISITORS. I NEVER FELT COMFORTABLE WITH THAT. I STILL DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE. BUT THE PUBLIC HEALTH EXPERT SAID IT WAS NECESSARY. WE SAID THE TEMPERATURES OF ALL STAFF HAD TO BE TAKEN. WE’RE NOW AT A POINT WHERE WE HAVE MORE TESTING CAPACITY. WE DO. AND I THINK WE SHOULD PRIORITIZE NURSING HOMES. AND THAT’S WHERE THE TWO TESTS PER WEEK. WE WILL WORK WITH ANYONE WHO SAYS THEY DON’T HAVE THE CAPACITY FOR TWO TESTS PER WEEK. IT IS NOT AN UNCOMMON COMPLAINT. MANY OF THE NURSING HOMES ARE SAYING IT’S UNNECESSARY AND IT’S A BURDEN. I UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS BURDENSOME. BUT I THINK WE HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING WE HAVE TO DO AND DON’T THINK IT IS UNNECESSARILY BURDENSOME. YOU TAKE A TEST ONCE A WEEK. ALL THAT TELLS YOU IS THAT THE DAY YOU TOOK THE TEST YOU DID NOT HAVE THE VIRUS. YOU GET TESTED ON MONDAY. YOU DIDN’T HAVE THE VIRUS ON MONDAY. BUT YOU COULD GET IT TUESDAY. AND YOU COULD SPREAD IT WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY, UNTIL YOU GET THE NEXT TEST ON MONDAY. THAT’S WHY WE SAID TWO TESTS PER WEEK. BUT WE WILL WORK WITH YOU ON THE CAPACITY. ANYONE WANT TO ADD ANYTHING ON THAT. >>THROUGH THE REGULATION WE PUT OUT, WE SAID NURSING HOMES HAVE TO TURN INTO A PLAN TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT UNTIL WEDNESDAY. AND THEN THE STATE HEALTH DEPARTMENT IS GOING TO EVALUATE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NURSING HOMES OR COUNTIES THAT HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME MEETING THE NEED, WE WILL HELP THEM REACH THAT GOAL. AS THE GOVERNOR SAID, THIS IS PRIORITY ONE.>>[INAUDIBLE QUESTION].>>ACROSS THE BOARD.>>GOVERNOR, I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR THE EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT ALLOWS PHARMACISTS NOW TO DO THESE TESTS IN PHARMACIES. I THINK IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. AND I KNOW I’M DEAN OF THE PHARMACY SCHOOL. BUT, STILL, I THINK THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT. WILL YOU CONSIDER AN EXECUTIVE ORDER SO PHARMACISTS CAN DELIVER ALL CDC VACCINATIONS SOON SO THAT WHEN A COVID-19 VACCINATION COMES OUT IT CAN BE DELIVERED IN THE PHARMACY?>>THAT’S A GOOD QUESTION. IN TRUTH, I DON’T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THE SPECIFICS ON VACCINES TO GIVE YOU AN ANSWER. BUT I CAN TELL YOU THIS, WE HAVE ABOUT 5,000 PHARMACIES IN THIS STATE. AND IN THIS NEW WORLD THAT WE’RE ALL DEALING, HOW DO YOU GET VACCINES TO PEOPLE? HOW DO YOU GET TESTING DONE? HOSPITALS, LABS. WE HAVE ABOUT 300 LABS. WE HAVE ABOUT 200 HOSPITALS. IF YOU PUT BOTH OF THEM TOGETHER, YOU HAVE ABOUT 500 LOCATIONS. BUT YOU CAN’T DO 19 MILLION PEOPLE FROM 500 LOCATIONS. PHARMACIES WERE 5,000 NEW OUTLETS TO THE STATE. SO IT MAKES A TREMENDOUS DIFFERENCE. AND I THINK WE LEARNED THAT. AND GOING FORWARD I’M GOING TO BE VERY COGNIZANT OF THAT IN THAT CAPACITY. WHO DIDN’T ASK A QUESTION? SIR? .>>WHAT HAPPENS IF A NURSING HOMEWORKER DECIDES TO REFUSE A TEST?>>OH. THAT’S A PROBLEM. IF THE NURSING HOME AGREES AND THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGREES AND WE DO HAVE THE TESTS AND THE NURSING HOME STAFF PERSON JUST DOESN’T WANT TO TAKE THE TEST EVEN THOUGH IT’S AVAILABLE, I’D HAVE TO CHECK WITH THE LAWYERS. BECAUSE I ALWAYS GET MYSELF INTO LITIGATION UNNECESSARILY. BUT I WOULD SAY, WITHOUT COUNSEL’S OPINION, THEN THE PERSON SHOULDN’T WORK IN A NURSING HOME. LOOK, WE CAN’T MAKE YOU TAKE A TEST. BUT YOU DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO WORK IN A NURSING HOME EITHER. AND IF A TEST IS VEIL AND YOU CAN TAKE THE TEST AND THERE’S NO COST TO YOU TO TAKE THE TEST, WHY WOULDN’T YOU TAKE THE TEST? AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE THE TEST, WHY WOULD WE LET YOU WORK IN A NURSING HOME AND POSSIBLY ENDANGER A VERY VULNERABLE POPULATION. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR HAVING US.

  • As a doctor I can tell you the lack of vitamin d;(you get vitamin d from the sun) can cause inflammation in blood vessels. It's no wonder that these cases are popping up after 2 months of lockdown. Those kids deaths are on the governors hands. If you don't believe me just look it up or ask other doctors.

  • Just a suggestion for the mask, maybe deliver some free by post (a pack of 20) because for some who want to get a mask its can be difficult to find (sometime the pharmacy don't have them in stock, etc). If will encourage to wear one.

  • BRITTANY BOND says:

    For God so loved the world he sent his only begotten son to die on the cross for our sins that who so ever would believe on him would not perish but have everlasting life

  • ShortRound42 says:

    Life long New Yorker here…did you guys forget what this moron did!!!!!!????
    The March 25 order that forced infected patients back into Nursing homes! He cost those people their lives! He had the Javits and the Comfort Navy ship but put them back into the nursing homes with uninfected elderly and it cost all of them their lives. How can you defend him? How!? Have you no heart? He destroyed their lives, they died!
    The March 25 order was a death sentence. Some Nursing facilities say they had no deaths or even positive patients before that date, but many of both since, including among staff members.

    Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill Health Center on April 24, had lost 55 patients. Reporters were shown an email exchanges with the Department of Health where the Health Center got no help when asking for relief. The request to have some of the ­COVID-19 patients sent to the Javits Center or the Navy ship Comfort, both of which were well below capacity, was rejected. REJECTED by this pompous moron.

    Cuomo threatened to remove the facilities’ licenses and warned them against committing perjury in their death reports. The owners and staffs of these nursing homes were threatened with a warning to be silent and an investigation to pin the blame for thousands of deaths on them. Unconscionable!
    Families never saw their loved ones again! Cuomo also barred them from nursing homes but simultaneously imposed infected patients on said facilities. Shame on him.
    He also ied about the ventilators. He had OVER 4,000 of them in surplus and kept complaining he didn't have any. Then lied about saving them for the uptick. He could've used them while they were getting him more so those people died too and suffered unnecessarily!

    I can't believe people think he did a good job.
    Him and deBlasio and the NYC city's Health Commissioner in FEBRUARY assured NY'ers there's no reason for anyone to change their holiday plans, avoid the subway or certain parts of the city because of Coronavirus.
    They told NY'ers to go about your lives, take the subway, go out, enjoy life.
    In MARCH they let a woman come in from Italy to only stay at home IF she develops symptoms.
    They said to go to your neighborhood bars.
    They were ALL irresponsible and cost THOUSANDS of lives! It's unfathomable that people think he did a good job.
    You all can't be that blind.

  • Edward Anthony says:

    Can't wait for DMV to reopen so I can renew my license that's due to expire @ the end of July & get the new updated one.

  • Edward Anthony says:

    Discuss & stress preventative measures like green tea detox etc., vitamin intake, proper diet to boost immune systems, proper protection & so on.

  • Suzi SaintJames says:

    Governor, it's good that you stopped to talk to that man without a mask, but it would have been more effective, if you would have handed him a mask as well. I probably wouldn't have had a mask if my neighbor didn't ask me to make him some. People will argue a point to hid the fact that they are too ignorant to be able to find masks. So if you're going to advocate masks, have some extra in your pocket to hand out. ❤🌅🌵

  • Neglected pile of worthless garbage emulating whatever pure evil creep raised it. Nothing but covert narcissism out of it every video notice they don’t teach phycology to the people thus masses think I’m the crazy one

    Am I the only one who waited for 1 hour 29 minutes for the video to start and still thinks the wait was worth it and believes #Cuomoforpresident😄

  • I don’t know how people give this man a Thumbs Down. Is Trump this clear and articulate? No. Is Trump honest and open minded? No. Is Trump a details person? Absolutely not. Does Trump think “Americans First”? No. To the rest of the world, if they could vote for America’s next President, it would be Andrew Cuomo.

  • Carl "The Truth" Williams says:

    Cuomo tells a truth………It’s all illegal.

  • The 1957 pandemic was navigated and solved without government intervention. Thats why it was not a national and worldwide disaster on so many levels like todays. Inept and corrupt government stooges working for corrupt foundations and media along with mega groups that represent profit corporations are ruining the world while cloaked in a saving lives false narrative. Be careful who you vote for.

  • Joseph m Oleandi jr says:

    Hydroxychloroquine prescriptions are exploding in France. Don't get too excited New Yorkers. Andrew Cuomo band hydroxychloroquine on March 6th. Death equals money. Time's almost up Cuomo

  • Mr. Cuomo, During this briefing and update. It is sad that only doctors and nurses are mentioned? Do you know who is in the front lines before the doc’s and nurses? They are called RESPIRATORY THERAPIST. They are truly the ones doing the dirty work from the beginning of intubation to the management of the breathing machines until the patient recovers or dies, BUT we never hear their profession being mentioned. From today, they should be categorized as HEALTH PROFESSIONALS when talking about medical teams. RTs are the ones going inside the rooms with nurses. The Doc’s are always outside, they don’t even assessed the pts. It is the RT who does the dirty work and the most exposed and no credit is given to them. TOO SAD!!!!

  • I'm always here between 1:30am-3:30am every early morning from Australia waiting for the Governor's live briefing as they are always so informative. I'm in Isolation & not working so I can until my work opens back up again 🙂

  • Dear Governor Cuomo, why aren't you running for presidency ? We need you, America needs you, the free world needs you.

  • Charlie Brown says:

    The ONLY way to reopen is for everyone to wear a mask and it should be made law for a temporary time. Grow up people.

    I wish he would stop answering all the nasty questions the journos are asking! If I was him I’d walk out. Nasty, nasty journos! 😡 Mind, grudgingly, I concede him staying and answering all those nasty questions gives me some idea of the facts and about what is happening, and what the leadership in NY is actually doing to save lives….I’ll give him that… though I worry about his hurt feelings…surely all those nasty, nasty questions must hurt his feelings….😗

  • Governor Cuomo is effectively reversing a much-criticized policy directive that was sending seniors treated for COVID-19 back into nursing homes.

    A March 25th order from the state Department of Health required all nursing homes to readmit seniors who left to be treated for coronavirus at a hospital..

    Critics said that policy led to more than 5,000 deaths in nursing homes, which are regulated by the state.!!

  • You have also Blocked your Doctors, Researchers, and Patients complaints and many and suggestions.

    Americans could be dying because they wear masks and are locked in???????

    Face masks block 50% Oxygen and collect germs concentrated in masks causing infections!

    Has New Jersey lockdowns and mismanagement of ICU treatment caused highest deaths?

    Please investigate the Views of Professionals below that are banned from exposure by Meet the Press and Dr Fauci in their reporting on covid-19.

    Vaccine is not Essential when there is HERD IMMUNITY!

    WHY REJECT hydroxychloroquine?

  • The Virus Warrior

    My life fades

    the vision dims.

    All that remains are memories.

    I remember a time of sickness

    ruined dreams this wasted land.

    But most of all, I remember Cuomo

    the man we called governor.

    To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time

    when the world was powered by the black fuel

    and the deserts sprouted great cities of pipe and steel.

    Gone now swept away.

    They shut the economy down

    and sent everyone home.

    Without jobs they were nothing.

    Like pigs they built a house of straw.

    The thundering machines sputtered and stopped.

    Their leaders talked and talked and talked

    but nothing could stem the avalanche.

    Their world crumbled

    the hospitals exploded.

    A whirlwind of chaos ,

    a firestorm of debt and fear.

    Men began to feed on men.

    In the grocery store it was a metal basket nightmare.

    Only those masked up and

    brutal enough would survive.

    The loonies took over the stores

    ready to wage war for a roll of toilet paper

    And in this maelstrom of decay

    ordinary people were battered and smashed.

    And into this chaos one man dared to wander the New York land.

    And it was here in this blighted place

    that he learned to rant again.

  • Captain Underpants says:

    Don't get the Cuomovirus 😷 – It turns you into a lying, treasonous, sellout piece of trash! 💩

  • jarome Schin says:

    There's a reason why he would not run for president and he told you so LOL just like Ted Kennedy he has bad history. What he told you today look up what he did yesterday

  • Tyme After Time says:

    I don't care, Cuomo needs to run for President !!! This man is a REAL leader. He cares for the people. When he speaks, all states listen, not just New York.

  • If Cuomo listen Trump Early rock down New York than We already fix
    Corona. When Corona begin Trump want rock down New York but Cuomo
    disagree and talking about its Governors Rights from Constitutions. Far
    latter New York shut down but ITS TO LATE, We lose good time. Corona
    infarction all US!

  • Frank Alfano says:

    i wasnet happy with cuomo when he send sick people from hospital to nursing homes when they had the virus

  • DRuthlessFilms says:

    *******TECHNICAL SUPPORT****** TURN THE MASTER AUDIO UP ON GOVERNOR CUOMO!
    Somedays its okay… Most of the time it's too low. Its not my computer, cell phone, etc. I'm watching from California every morning, and thank you Governor for being the voice of reason. I believe these press conferences are so important right now. I also believe these press conferences will be very important in the future. So, lets archive this stuff a little better.

  • I will admit that I hardly wear a mask, I thought the lady at work who has hers on was a bit excessive. But he has convinced me to do better.

  • Hi! I'm from California and I like Governor Cuomo alot since he's honest in his view points and don't make up things to give false hopes to New Yorkers unlike President Trump. I think Govnor Cuomo would make a good Vice President for Joe Biden since he's what the people and nation need to get America and American people back on our feet and aid in the economy recovery. I really like how he say wearing a mask is showing respect to others since it's true. I hate wearing mask myself but I do wear it when I'm outside esp in stores since I don't want to infect others or have myself get infected by them. Many Americans don't wear masks because they don't like it or think wearing one is like someone taking away their freedom/ rights which is why the virus kept on spreading. American govt are dumb to keep giving large chucks of bailout money to big corps (banks, airline companies, etc) since they thought the money would help stabilize those industries, but in reality, the money goes to company's executives first and the low paying American workers are the ones to suffer for the stupidity of the politicians. Even if the airline companies get bailout, they can't keep all their employees if no one felt safe to travel in or out of US. So that money goes to waste and US gov ended up paying more in UI claims afterward when the majority of airline employees will all be fired from their jobs whether in Sept 2020 or 3 yrs from now. Big corps made a lot of profits in good times, so they should save 35% of their profits for rainy day emergency use so they could bailout their own company when it's in financial trouble. If they are not smart to think ahead and do what I advise here then they deserve to go bankrupt. Poor country don't have money to help any business out in major crisis so their people suffer a lot and many nations don't have the ability to get loans from UN. USA is a nation in big financial debts since we kept on borrowing and bailing out out big corps in time of national crisis.
    If we (American and foreigners around the world) want to get back to normalcy again fast than we have to work together as a nation to stop spreading the virus and do the right things like following gov's health regulations, social distancing, wearing masks, helping one another, etc. This virus is not going away on its own and the longer we keep thinking it will or placing our hope on finding a vaccine then we will never get rid of the virus and our death rate will go up esp if the travel ban is lifted world wide since this is how the Covid 19 got spread in the first place. It's we, the people, who is helping the virus flourish since many people believe that we are immune from it and putting our ego/self importance, and ignorance first instead of doing our best to overcome this health crisis in American and around the world. The science data is not wrong, it us who are not taking it seriously when it first came to US, so that's why our economy went downhill and so many innocent lives are being lost, and we are all stressed out mentally, emotionally, and financially in America and so is the world too.
