New York City residents could start seeing federal stimulus payments of up to $1,200 as soon as Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday. The mayor also said the city has set up 450 "grab and go" locations for families to obtain breakfast, lunch and dinner as the city struggles under a restrictive stay-at-home order that has forced many residents out of work. The city also has banned evictions to help people struggling to make rent, de Blasio said.

"Some some of (the payments) will be soon," de Blasio said. "But others are going to take a long time. … If it takes too long, it doesn't help enough."

      *A democrat ? Another idiot following bill gates’ guidelines. Jerker like his daddy and baby bro.*

  1. Nationwide mandate to wear masks/coverings the moment one steps out of one’s home. There is too much of this virus around. It’s getting passed on by humans to animals now. Tigers in a zoo have been infected by humans.

    • Use your GD Common Sense! They are lying to you. Do some research. You have time now. Find out what they h ave to gain.

    • T Young Please tel us the truth as you see it.

      Tigers? You mean 1 tiger, right?

    • @I love America And resent seeing it stolen No, not one. It’s more than one tiger. It’s highly contagious as you might know.

    • @T Young C’on now. Wearing masks/coverings will prevent this very virulent virus from spreading. Everyone should be wearing masks. Use common sense. When you wear a mask you trap pathogens inside the mask (provided it’s adequately thick). When you get home, wash the mask/covering in boiling water for about 2 minutes. Wash with laundry soap. Dry in clean environment.

  2. Governor says the 29th president say the 30th???

    Donnie is a Wizard … Watch he’ll make the Virus disappear .. the old Abracadabra magic word and poufs away it goes. How did this fictional scenario become “Reality” …. Heeeerrrrreeeee’s Donnie!!

  4. U wanted to control the growth of the population by allowing the killings of unborn babies; So now people are dying like insects especially those old like u and older! So who’s in charge now!

    • Grow up.

    • These fear mongers are very contradicting when you pay attention to their words. They almost all repeat the same things. Enforcing people to stay locked up has seem to be show that they make up numbers by the ammuno compromised. Ppl are listed cause of death covid when it was a heart attack or other health issues, deceiving America.

      You say that like you think God is doing this? You dont respect God very much, do you? God isn’t doing this. If he were he’d be targeting the evil ones, not his healing hands upon the earth. Not the people going to church. You should not blame God for this, shame on you.

    • @Amber Andrews please set god fairy tales aside.

    Boomers are dropping like flies 🦟

  6. Although I am in California, I find Gov. Cuomo’s press briefings a breath of fresh air in this crises in comparison to what we get from the President. This provides real information for us to understand how this virus effects New York. It also gives everyone a glimpse of how someone can actually run a government entity to respond to a crisis. Way to go New York!

  7. Appreciate the straight talk. Enforce it, Gov Cuomo.

    • You are asking for you own enslavement of which this is actually a test run, and they will implement more rules and strip away more rights little by little , all the while, YOU have no actual proof that anything they are saying is true.

      You are merely saturated with the same lies over and over all day long by the very same people all on the very same side of this war. And , it IS A WAR!
      It is a War is against you and FOR your mind and ultimately your total physical enslavement, that is, if you are one of the unlucky ones who survives. THAT is THEIR plan. However, it will fail. With no thanks to people like you, I might add. It will fail in spite of people like you who choose to keep the blind folds on and the speakers turned up on these mainstream news stations. Cuomo is a mafia family of origin thug. But, you would not know that, because you have never done your own research.

    I was watching abc news today and they showed central park where people was still walking and had their social activities. Why can’t this governor stop those places instead of complaining every day. He should have shut down the entire state from the beginning

    • You are asking for a narcissistic, sociopath to enact unconstitutional powers and strip citizens of their rights, due to something that you have no first h and knowledge of and only believe the talking heads who spew the same lies 24/7. Good work. I suppose you are old enough to vote too. What a shame.

      The cities must enforce it.

  9. Anecdotal anything is meaningless. Governor Cuomo should NOT be mentioning these treatments as anything but untested. There is a reason for double blind controlled studies. You can pass around paperclips as a COVID-19 treatment and I guarantee that there will be desperate patients stating that this is working. There is no magic bullet and these type of treatments have bad side effects and take away the medication from people who need it. It’s not right and it’s not cool. President Trump has called these treatments ‘gamechangers’. No, it’s not a game changer. That type of language is incredibly dangerous and foolish. I hope we do get a good treatment for COVID-19 but this is not the way to do it.

    Hospital ship air conditioning system may be more re-circulatory and may introduce an airborne problem if used for covid19 patients. Please think about it,

  12. Agree disagree, this guy is impressive. He speaks clearly, makes sense, and doesn’t keep talking about the economy or sacrificing the elderly.

    • You’re the gullible type. This guy was one of the slowest governers to implement stay-home recommendations in the whole country.

      Don’t judge a person by his words, check his actions.

    • @Hojin Lee Of course someone like you would get personal right away. Cuomo called for action weeks ago while trump called the whole thing a hoax and kept trashing him in twitter. Do your homework. I would imagine trump is your hero but he is a loser and has no idea how to deal with a crisis. But you just go on trashing people.

  13. Think for yourself. Question everything. Look for the Facts. Do your own research.

  14. God bless New York

    In comparison, Trump is frightfully inaccurate, ignorant, incoherent, incompetent and too arrogant. Cuomo is doing a much better job than the quackdoctor in the WH.

    i am really stunned at this lack of realism by cuomo and his scientific advisors.
    1. @1.25 “total new hospitalized” is almost an oxymoronic phrase. This histogram displays new hospitalizations in the last 24h. There is nothing “total” in it.
    2. When he says they are “down” he refers that the new hospitalizations and intubations are down but not negative, thus the patients are going up from the previous days.
    3. The reason why the rate of change of hospitalizations is decreasing is simply beacuse hospitals are saturated, therefore they physically cannot admit new patients, which are being left sick at home, not because the pandemic is contracting.
    4. the distribution of the rate of change of infections is always as in @2.13. The distribution @2.21 happens whenever hospitals saturate and tests are just used on hospitals admitted. this has been the case in Italy (specifically in bergamo and brescia provinces) and has been going on in nyc in the last days. distribution @2.21 effectively is the one @2.13 truncated at the top by the limited capabilities of collecting
    new positives.
    5. nyc is about 2 weeks from the maximum in the rate of change, but this will be detected only as 3-4 weeks long plateau. Real numer of covid deaths can be extrapolated afterwards, just by comparing TOTAL number of deaths in new york this April compared with the average deaths of last 5 years’ during april.
