New York City Turns to Martial Law-Like Tactics to Curb Coronavirus

Trouble is brewing in The Big Apple.

Americans are growing ever more paranoid regarding the COVID-19 strain of coronavirus that is currently dominating the headlines.  Fears are that this is some new plague, or perhaps even the pestilence spoken about in The Bible.

But the numbers aren’t yet that worrisome, at least not in the United States.  This is due in no small part to our highly advanced medical infrastructure and our overall diligence.

Of course, the hype is still very real, and there are areas where concerns may be a bit greater than the average.  New York City very well might be that sort of place.

In a news briefing Tuesday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the area had a radius of one mile surrounding a so-called “hot spot” of COVID-19 cases.

Schools and facilities, including some businesses such as “large gathering places” or those that “bring large quantities of people together,” will close for two weeks as officials work to sanitize the area, officials said. Cuomo added that the National Guard would be assisting the sanitation efforts and Northwell Health was setting up a satellite testing facility in the area.

Furthermore, Governor Cuomo has called in the National Guard to help control the situation, which is always an alarming sight for Americans who are not accustomed to military patrols on our city’s streets.
