    Why not test all you can??
    Here in Denmark we have drive in testing at some hospitals, free.

  3. dump, “we have this contained”

  4. 3D approach: Don’t test, Don’t report, Don’t disclose. So, the numbers will be small and the problem will be negligible.

    • @Kathy Weis >>red herring, is that because your a russian troll<<< I was correct. You wear your ignorance well and those big floppy reds shoes look good on you. FYI, You're not your.

      @Kathy Weis I tapped out when you said you support Bernie Sanders but somehow support our second amendment also. Bernie wants gun harsh restrictions and to hold gun manufacturers liable for anyone commiting a crime with a gun. He wants to ban “assault rifles” even though most murders are committed with hand guns. We share many of the same views but support different paths of achieving them. If you love your 2nd amendment then Bernie Sanders is not the guy to support. If you like lower taxes then Bernie Sanders isn’t the person to support. Supporting a socialist that wants more government control is not a good way to protect second amendment rights. Have a good day at work and thank you for working in healthcare. It’s a hard job that doesn’t pay nearly enough. Good luck to you and your family. Try not wishing death upon people it’s really tacky. 🧐👋😀 I will also try and be nicer in my discourse.

  5. Since when won’t republicans endorse the private sector?? Fishy AF

    If any government agency orders an American citizen to be quarantined at home or elsewhere because of the coronavirus, then it goes without saying that the ordering agency has the most basic responsibility to ensure food, water, and medical attention during the entire quarantine.

    • @peacefulheart he just approved 8.3 billion… But keep spreading your libtard misinformation.

      No, it must be a lib. May be read some history. During outbreaks of contagious diseases big QUARENTINE signs were posted on people’s doors. The government is not your mama…pay for your own self.the government isnt responsible for an act of nature

      @E.T. Ethics the virus is not airborne it spreads through mucus and water droplets they dont stay alive for two weeks out in the open it only survives 7-8 hours on surfaces when someone coughs they can only spread in a 6ft radius unless someone coughs purposely into the air ducts of ur building then ur fine stop spreading misinformation just dont be stupid and u won’t get the virus

    “We’ll leave it there for now.” wonder-fricke-ful.

      George Layton – you all do realize the federal government authorized the use of private labs on Friday and Gov C isn’t up to speed and CNN doesn’t even question it ….

    He could put in an quarantine order

    Where there’s one, you can count on a lot more.

  12. Thanks Governor Cuomo for approaching this health crisis with the right attitude.

    Except you aren’t testing! 🤣🤣🤣

  14. This guy and his facts, when’s he’s sick, fact he screwed!! Start preventing it rather than waiting on tests

    The poor healthcare system CANNOT handle more intensive care patients.

  16. Amber Derion | March 8, 2020 at 5:32 PM | Reply

    It’s too many cases ALL over the US to be tracing every contact

    • Amber Derion | March 8, 2020 at 8:03 PM | Reply

      @Laurell LaurellBay I am not gripless. All I said was that CoVid 19 is alreadyvall over. It is going to take too much time and effort to keep trying to track down peoples contacts. LOL tell me to get a grip and you can’t even understand the context of a you tube comment.

    • Laurell LaurellBay But that was within a year. Have you realised that this virus already infected more than 100,000 people for less than 3 months? If it keeps spreading like this, within one year at least 50 to 60 percent of The US population will be infected

    • Donald Ducko | March 8, 2020 at 9:05 PM | Reply

      All over? Lol 500 in a nation of 325+ million.

    • Donald Ducko That is only because the US is highly under-tested. Once your test kits are in place, this number would multiply to god knows how many.

  17. It will continue to spread. By May, we’ll all realized how screwed we are.

    The CDC totally screwed the pooch on developing the tests.

    • How do I like your comment 19 times?

    • @cj p Trump still “tried” to get those cuts done. Doesn’t take away the fact that he’s a moron for trying to do that. Good thing those cuts didn’t happen.

    • Donald Ducko – Fear is an emotion that is telling you to pay attention to something. If there is something that needs attention then pointing it out is prudent, or perhaps an abundance of caution.

      But I take your point that ‘old-and-at-risk-medically’ people really aren’t worth much. We shouldn’t pay much attention to anything that might protect them. However, we might want to think about all the rest of the ‘valuable’ population that won’t be able to get adequate medical care when the system is overwhelmed by Covid-19 patients.

      Perhaps one last point. If you’re lucky, you’ll get old too. And much sooner than you think. I hope you and all of us get through this unscathed.

    @3:03 there might be a Freudian slip.

    “…Uh… companies…”


  19. No traveling flying or cruises!!!! In or out…..😡

    Cuomo: “The fear is outpacing the facts.”
    Also Cuomo: Declares state of emergency.

    • Let’s burn all the test kits on every person that even midly feels symptoms.
      And not save them for medical workers and old folks home attendants.

    • Edwin Cortes he declared it a state of emergency so that he could receive emergency funding from the Federal government 😇

    • He declares the state of emergency, so that funding and needed materials can flow when necessary..
