    Reminder: Donald Trump’s presidential immunity expires on January 20th, 2021, at 12pm Eastern Time.

  2. Great just great. Shut down flights now or else this vaccine won’t work:( But sad to say trump will play it down again.

    • Who cares I’m having the best year ever! Best plan Demic ever

    • Its already here. China released the beast, yet so many people fail to see it was a deliberate biological attack. They are rightfully laughing at most the world. Lock downs don’t do a thing, proven fact. We were told long ago, it keeps mutating at an alarming rate. It has an unprecedented ability to do so that very few viruses have. It also behaves like airborne HIV. It likes to just… live in you. Like ol’ HIV, it perfectly copies our own cells and lies dormant, able to come back at any time. It takes too long to make a vaccine – its done mutated by the time it arrives. Still, the vaccine will be partially effective. Better than nothing.

      Freak out, ignore it, inflate or hide the numbers. I’ve seen it all this year. And it doesn’t do anything to stop the virus. Just a bunch of fearmongering and false hope. When I’m being told by city coroners that people tested positive anytime in their lives dying counts as a covid death, it starts to make sense why my “red zone” of a country has nearly completely vacant and silent hospitals. Seriously, I went to get my monthly infusions. Everyone was whispering in a library voice.

      We got the cold, and Covid is just another flu now, with optional vaccinations that may only be 50 percent effective. Like all seasonal flu, you treat symptoms, which we can do effectively. People can lock themselves down and quit work – its the same thing as a law doing it. Except the entire business dies. People fail to seem to understand, stimulus isn’t free money. Its a loan on taxes, essentially. And we are pulling right on around to tax time…. not long now until people freak out, gasping and running with firebombs through the cities streets.

  3. I agree. We don’t need a new and improved version of covid-19.

    Donald Trump: I can’t believe you’ve denied me a hearing. I appointed 3 of you.

    Supreme Court: It is what it is.

    • He thinks appointing the Judges was the “Endgame” and they would help him. Those higher up have longer term plans and they don’t involve Trump.

      @SPKdesign1 That shows how stupid and what kind of low trash he is. The guy shows all signs that he wanna to become the dictator of the USA. And what I do not understand that 70 million people in Yankeestan, takes his word for granted, while the rest of the world knows that he is a pathetic liar.

    • @Trap Daddy
      That is freaking awesome!

    • @james2774 I bet they are all scarred for life, having paid the price in soul. And flesh. In a seedy hotel with a 50 cent vibrating bed and dubious stains on the ceiling. Even the old men. Its always old men, no women. Wheres them old ladies to represent? I bet I know why….

    BREAKING NEWS: Sea levels are expected to rise due to severe tear shedding by Trumpanzees. Caution is advised.

    Absolutely correct gov.

  8. Why are there international flights anyway?

    • @Deborah Freedman Which again is pretty much most countries that allow travel. The difference was between forced hotel quarantine and “at-home” quarantine. Also, airports, buses, malls don’t allow you to enter without a temp check and scanning the country’s COVID-19 contact tracing app on your smart phone.
      Side note: If a person “parties” before or after they fly somewhere, they’re irresponsible and part of the reason this global lock-down has continued for as long as it has.

    • @habirton I’m in NZ and international arrivals,which are mainly Kiwis returning home,are paid for by our government .We have few exceptions on entering our country, like international sports teams,who have to pay for their own supervised quarantine and testing if they want to come..That’s the deal..

    • @Sue Howie That’s fair. I was just saying that there is need for international travel and there are plenty of countries doing it responsibly. Sadly, mine (America) isn’t.

    • @habirton Boogles my mind..

    • This has been my question from day 1

    Hey Cuomo! Limit restrictions to the rest of Europe too! Here in the Netherlands we also found the new mutation, Belgium, Germany and France as well! Be before this spread now you can!

  10. I live in the UK and I don’t understand why the UK hasn’t shut down all its travel already. It’s not more deadly but it transmits much more easily.

    • @Caroline Mcclain there is a lockdown / restrictions, basically there are different tiers of lockdown currently 1 to 4.
      1 is the most relaxed pubs still open etc.
      4 equates to a stay at home order at the moment. I’m in Surrey which is mostly tier 4 but I’m right near the border with West Sussex which is Tier 2. So if anyone from my area wanted to go for a meal all the restaurants are closed however u could drive 2 Miles and find them open as different area….so it doesn’t really make a lot of sense

    • Margaret Nicol | December 21, 2020 at 6:14 PM | Reply

      40+ countries have already banned flights from the UK including Canada. The US should do it immediately. Cuomo should go further and ban all flights/travel.

    • Jibril Abdulkadir | December 21, 2020 at 7:55 PM | Reply

      It’s probably already in the USA and the rest of the world

    • Cuomo will just send them to old folks homes like he did the last time!

    • Margaret Nicol | December 21, 2020 at 8:05 PM | Reply

      @GTPEACE9R 75 At least he learned and moved on which is more than the GOP did.

  11. If we’re still talking about this tomorrow, it’s already too late.

  12. t’rump: “I shut down travel from China and saved millions!”
    China: “Yeah, but we still sent 40,000 people there after your ban.”
    t’rump: “But I saved millions!!”
    Europe: “And yet you forgot that the earth is round and we infected the east coast.”
    t’rump: “Millions!!”
    America: 🤷🤦

    • World…We win!..We got a Covid-19 vaccine!
      Covid-19…I will see your vaccine..and I will raise you one Covid-21 Premium PRO-MAX Power Special…..NOW I WIN!!

    • The Insane Shecklador | December 21, 2020 at 7:08 PM | Reply

      I suspect his “ban” on China travel was more about trying to gain some leverage in his never ending “good and easy to win” trade war with them. His lack of other action and constant downplaying of the virus in the days/weeks/months after the “ban” show he did not care about our safety. He only cared about his reelection.

    • Now coroners are blowing the whistle on inflated numbers. Like people who test positive once for covid sometime in the past. Dying from gunshot wounds. 2 out of 5 dead. Shot to death. Corona-chan is OG.

    This is exactly what happens when you have the GOP in charge of the country… Nothing Good comes out of this party… They need to be voted out and never be in charge again!

    Probably for the same reason he didn’t do it back in March.. he’s afraid it will scare the stock market. Doesn’t make much sense seeing how he’s only President for 30 some days more.

    This “new mutation” hit the UK media days ago, they immediately responded. Wth! Enough already. Someone do their freaking jobs. Cuomo 2024💙

    • Deborah Freedman | December 21, 2020 at 5:19 PM | Reply

      It discovered in Southern England in October. Scientific papers on the new strain were published in early November. The press is lagging.

    • Caroline Mcclain | December 21, 2020 at 5:44 PM | Reply

      @Deborah Freedman They are going by permission of the Government of when to speak to the public. And there is no lagging, trying to not to panic people. That is all. Wear the facemask, social distance and wash the hands.

  16. Couldn’t agree with you more in every aspect.

  17. From here in the UK, Gov.Cuomo is RIGHT! Our own airports should have shut down in early March, but Boris Johnson is an expensively educated buffoon.

  18. Anthony Mcqueen | December 21, 2020 at 4:17 PM | Reply

    I have zero faith in our government to handle another threat like this one. I already suspect this new strain is already here.

    America land of the Karen’s home of the un-educated and ignorant.

  19. Hey Governor Cuomo. I’m glad to see at least one politician reads the comments on YouTube 👍👍

  20. Not looking forward to this new strain of covid 19. Especially living here in the epicentre London England 🤦🏼‍♂️

    • Be as safe as you can. Please Stay Home! I’m praying for you and your Country as well as US & The World❤ Tough Times for us all
