Gov. Cuomo Shocked as Latest COVID-19 Cases Come from Social-Distancing Homebodies

Well that’s terrifying!

In New York City, this coronavirus crisis has been particularly bullish.

This is on account of the close proximity in which New Yorkers live, eat, work, and play together.  This is the city that never sleeps, and a hub for international travel.  It’s also our nation’s financial headquarters, as well as a cultural beacon to much of the nation.  So, naturally, when COVID-19 arrived here, it made quite the splash.

Now, even as some progress is being made in the Five Boroughs, there are shocking new bits of data coming to the surface that are scaring the daylights out of Empire State Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo said during his daily press briefing that the early findings surveyed 100 New York hospitals involving approximately 1,000 patients. Sixty-six percent of new hospital admissions were patients who virtually remained in their home, while nursing homes ranked second for new admissions at 18 percent.

On Tuesday, 1,700 previously undisclosed deaths at New York nursing homes were reported, bringing the total number of coronavirus deaths in such facilities across the state since March 1 to 4,800. Cuomo has garnered intense criticism over his March 25 directive ordering nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients.

“If you notice, 18% of the people came from nursing homes, less than 1% came from jail or prison, 2% came from the homeless population, 2% from other congregate facilities, but 66% of the people were at home, which is shocking to us,” the governor told reporters.

“This is a surprise. Overwhelmingly, the people were at home,” he added. “We thought maybe they were taking public transportation, and we’ve taken special precautions on public transportation, but actually no, because these people were literally at home.”

Cuomo has said the progress in battling COVID-19 has been “painfully slow”, despite the incrementally fewer number of cases that New York City medical professionals have been seeing in recent days.
