      @TILT When this pandemic is over I will. At least I’ll get health care FREE,

    • @Anthony Browne There’s no such thing as FREE LUNCH!!!

    • Anthony Browne | April 5, 2020 at 2:26 PM | Reply

      @TILT Tell that to corporations. They get a lot of FREE stuff.

    • @Anthony Browne Don’t have any issues with Corporations, Love capitalism it’s up to everyone how hard you want to work and how much money you want to make also how much you want to learn how to play the GAME….

  2. Governor Cuomo, you have probably the most difficult job in the country right now. Doctors and nurses are putting themselves at risk, and they should know they aren’t forgotten.
    No one should have to make the choice who lives and who’s going to die. Peace and love to you and everyone in NYC and state.

  3. *Looks like all those taxpayer dollars that were poured into Weapons over the last two decades, would have been better spent instead on a ‘Free National Health Service’ for Americans! When One simple virus can tear the whole “House Of Cards Down”, what good are all those stockpiling Weapons now?🤷‍♂️ Its Time for Free Health Care for All in America!*

      Claude Boily on a side note many more people showing positive for the antibodies is a good thing as it means a lot of people are getting it and not having a severe reaction and not that I would expect you to understand math but if a lot more people than originally thought have already had Corona virus and have recovered then that means the deaths per infected are actually much lower than originally thought as well. That’s a good thing. It is also hard to say how many deaths have been from covid 19. If at the time of death the patient had flu like symptoms and they haven’t been tested yet then they just mark them down as a covid 19 death and move on but the actual cause of death may have been the actual flu or any number of other issues.

    • @Lisa Frazier I’ll agree with your comment 100% if you change it to Military Offence instead of Defense. I haven’t seen any satellite images of forces massing at our borders. Iran however has made the fatal mistake of putting their country right in the middle or a bunch of our military bases. “A nation that turns away from God, murders it’s own helpless unborn, is courting spiritual and physical doom” – Mike

    • @Patricia roe A government that can give you everything you want, can take everything you have.

    • @Claude Boily Good point, no country was ready, and now that we have more ventilators than we know what to do with, maybe we can help Italy, France, and other countries like Iran, oops, no they can’t have help, they built their country too close to our military bases…. wait, no, turn that around, anyway it would be nice to give Iran a few too!

    • Claude Boily | April 27, 2020 at 2:27 AM | Reply

      @Mike Actualy we have more that we need for the moment however there will be another wave and we will eventually need those ventilators and hospital beds again but for another states like Georgia. The curve is not flatened and it is business as usual. Georgia state is a train wrek waiting to happened. The future will tell us if they were right and we will know that in a couple of weeks. If they were wrong they will become the next epicenter of cases. In term of help, we have more chances to need the one of other countries that got better because we are not out of the woods yet.

  4. Donald Trump disbanded the Obama pandemic team, why ? Because Trump hated Obama

    We need to spend as much on defending ourselves against viruses as we do against foreign countries.

    • Potter Charles | April 4, 2020 at 6:36 AM | Reply

      @Paul Taylor Now you’re just inventing an excuse to defend a position that is full of lies and false narrative. American people have been watching over the years the steady climb of higher taxes, higher cost of living taxes, and NO wage increases. I don’t know how anyone can spin the idea of reducing taxes into a bad thing. Nobody… NOBODY likes paying taxes. FYI the government functioned just fine with no taxes on the people before WWII. So stop pretending that you like paying taxes just so you can defend a weak argument.

    • Or Space Aliens

    • @Potter Charles payîng tax is normal and necessary. I am both happy and proud to be able to contribute to society through my taxes. To support EDUCATION, health, infrastructure and the thousands of other services provided in a modern society. I only wish taxation to be more fairly applied, with a more representative burden on the wealthy.

    • Potter Charles | April 4, 2020 at 5:38 PM | Reply

      @Paul Taylor All of which existed before WWII, when taxes weren’t mandatory, or existed at all. Regardless, some taxes is fine, but stealing from the social security funds to give money to illegal aliens is not fine. Stealing from the Post Office to fund illegal aliens, that is not fine. Raising taxes so the wealthy oil corporations can use our sons and daughters to go to war against oil rich companies is not ok. I strongly suggest you become more of a learner. Taxes have become too much, while peoples’ wages have remained frozen for 20 years. We are being filched, so our government can do foul things.

  6. The US healthcare system is broken and always has been. It has taken the C19 virus to show it. When you have private businesses running the health system, the health insurance system, the health supply system, and the pharmaceutical industry without adequate Government oversight, this is what you get. It all works (sort of) until something pulls away the bottom card and then the house collapses.

  7. Why isn’t there a ‘National Response’ instead of a “states you are on your own”..
    It’s very simple, Trump wants to put the onus on the states because that way he can refuse to take any responsibility for his failure, and blame it on the states when the crises grows out of hand..
    It’s the classic Trump* playbook, (blame everyone else for your own failures)

    • @Js Travelers there’s not going to be high death tolls everywhere. Big city’s yes. But it was here long before test kits, it will play out like the flu does. Just like last year.

    • Js Travelers | April 5, 2020 at 5:22 PM | Reply

      I think you’re absolutely wrong.
      However, it would be wonderful if you are correct.

    • @Js Travelers I’m not buying that the virus is just conveniently following around the test kits.

    • Js Travelers | April 5, 2020 at 6:58 PM | Reply

      That’s an interesting thought.
      I just came in from talking to my neighbor.
      A friend of his is 5 months pregnant.
      She just had some blood tests done this week.
      She HAS COVID-19 antibodies in her system.
      She had been very ill in November.
      I too was down for almost 2 weeks in January.
      I was tested for influenza.
      I definitely had that.
      No test available for COVID-19.
      could I have had both?…..don’t know
      I had all the symptoms of COVID-19
      Never so sick in my life.
      But no pneumonia.

    • @Js Travelers last year I had a 6 month mystery crud. This year March 1 sore throat, March 2 fever worse cough ever., March 5 , 101.6 and negative for flu and strep, still have thick chest congestion. Only my opinion, but I think the only thing we is the test

    I’m so glad we have an intelligent caring Governor.

  9. You know it’s bad when you hear the word “McGyvering” in combination with medical equipment in an interview.

  10. All this could have been avoided, if “people” did their jobs. We have gotten too comfortable. Yes, China is making everything because all you rich people wanted cheap labor to go from Millionaires to Billionaires. So many are so Dam Greedy they cared only about Money. No Unions, no living wages, no healthcare. Blood is on the hands of all the Greedy Rich people who only concern has been watching their Stock prices go up a good economy at the peril of the safety of people. As Cuomo said, “this just shouldn’t be”. They will all return to their greedy selves, nothing will change. China owes us, so don’t get mad with China. The Jokes on Us.

      Guillaume Habarugira I have no idea how many people from a baseball team live in China. But you’re going to compare South Korea a country with 1/6th the population that is the size of Minnesota to the US? Really? You think a land as vast as China couldn’t hide anything from the US? You sound like you have lots of conspiracy theories. I can’t wait to hear them all.

    • Guillaume Habarugira | April 26, 2020 at 6:50 PM | Reply

      @Ownerthekpwner conspiracies are the ones that say that an outbreak in Chinese mega metropoles with countless of foreigners living there could be hidden, on this age.

      So was Minesota fully tested then since it is the size of SK? Or was NY?

      Scapegoating works just fine. I don’t wear any red hat though.

    • Ownerthekpwner | April 26, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      Guillaume Habarugira no Minnesota wasn’t fully tested and neither was South Korea. I’m also unsure of what a metropole is.

    • Ownerthekpwner | April 26, 2020 at 9:03 PM | Reply

      Guillaume Habarugira scapegoating is blaming a person or group of people for stuff someone else did for example Hitler blamed the Jews for the defeat of Germany in world war 1. However it’s not scapegoating when you blame someone for something they actually did. China served dogs, cat and bats as food at the wet markets. Bats carry diseases that can be given to humans. The Chinese government did nothing to shut down these wet markets and now we have covid 19 because of it. See? That’s not scapegoating that’s putting the blame where it belongs.

    • Guillaume Habarugira | April 27, 2020 at 2:47 AM | Reply

      @Ownerthekpwnerlol, now shifting from they didn’t tell us to we knew everything about them (the wet markets) and what dangers it entailed, still we did nothing (Can’t think of any travel advisory warning US citizens travelling to China).
      I mean, I can’t argue with that.

  11. Reporter to Trump: is the Grand Party for the Easter Holiday to celebrate the Conquest of Covid 19 still on? Trump: that’s the Most Nasty Question!

  12. Arrozconpollo | April 3, 2020 at 9:57 PM | Reply

    WE put a man on the moon!!! Did we forget that? And we can’t make ventilators??!!!

  13. I always knew trump was not the one for the job but he has surpassed all my speculations . at every juncture it’s always about him . the other day during a press conference he felt the need to say he was number one on FB ….WTF

    • They need to step reporting on his yammering BS & just report what he’s doing (or NOT doing, rather). Don’t cover his press conferences. Boycott them. Give us the facts & the progress (or lack of).

    • @m dIf you do not see trumps daily BS, MAGATurds will think that trump is doing a great job, trump has to be called out at every turn.

    • @dan112020 they only watch Fox & those other loonies anyway, so they already think he’s going a great job. Boycott the words. Concentrate on the actions.

    New York is the exemplar, this will roll across all states with impumity killing thousands if not more.
    How hard is it to just STAY HOME?

    • @Greytro Do you know what a fallacy is? The number of people tested is NOT the denominator in the case fatality rate.

    • @Jeff Gibson they don’t have a denominator, nobody knows the number.

    • @Greytro Thaat’s right. In a year from now they’ll have a good guess at the number, but it will never proven.

    • Mathias Lerche | April 10, 2020 at 8:07 AM | Reply

      @Greytro There is a secret number of people who have/had the virus and don’t know it. That is true. And they reduce the mortality rate of the INFECTED. That is true. It is estimated rather at around 0,35%. They are getting better data on this right now. If you want to calculate the mortality rate for the whole POPULATION. (INFECTED or NOT) you will indeed get an even lower number. Still, I wouldn’t want to get it. Of those who get it15% go to the hospital for intensive care and 4-6% on a ventilator. So that’s not suuuuper rare. I’d like to pass on that.

    • @Mathias Lerche 15%, not true. 98% don’t get tested

  15. My heart goes out to this man. I can’t imagine the burden he is carrying on his shoulders. Praying earnestly for you, Gov. Cuomo.

    • Where’s FEMA? What are they doing? Sitting around with their thumbs up their backsides? Either they mobilize or get defunded. We can’t afford deadwood during this crisis. Isn’t this the exact type of thing they were created for?

    • Bigfat Pauly | April 5, 2020 at 7:29 AM | Reply

      Cuomo waited weeks after California to order stay at home. And didn’t shut down airports until it was way too late. Cuomo for prison.

    • @Bigfat Pauly And what penalty shall we impose upon Donald Trump. He has the power to enact a “stay at home” order but has not. After the Intelligence Agencies briefing where Trump was briefed on the catastrophic threat that Corona Virus poses to the People of the United States, to the economy and to national security Trump played golf, visited Mar-a-Largo, held several MAGA rallies, and downplayed the threat. Trump for Prison ?

      @Mike …someone needs to tell DJT

    • @lima leaf frog For all we know he tried to dispatch them and they pulled a ‘Katrina’ … again…. they’re as worthless as an infected appendix!

  16. Andrew Cuomo please run for a larger office in a place called the White House, your leadership is desperately needed!

    • He was interviewed the other day by his brother and he said he has no interest in running when asked if he was thinking about it or would ever consider it

    • Dogstar we hope he changes his mind.

    • TILT He is doing more than any other entity, at the current time! There is no shame in asking for help from other states in order to save the lives of your people. It is predicted that there is enough to continue aid to New Yorkers, however, it is not being released or the powers to be is not declaring the proper Statue Laws to assist during this emergency situation world wide. When a state of emergency is declared, Nation wide orders are put into place, and you activate all emergency agencies to assist countrywide, that is not what is happening, the individual state leaders are scrambling for supplies and help, even homemade items to assist the people that are helping us all, the doctors, the nurses, all first responders, etc. If all our health providers get sick and are not protected who is going to medically take care of us if they are all ill? That would definitely be a national disaster. Governor Cuomo can only do so much when National Leaders have the power to respond and are not providing with the supplies; a National response team is needed. Thank you Governor Cuomo for caring for your people in New York to save life’s. People are not moving out, they are running away from this virus, which will hit all of the states, no one is immune from this epidemic, except staying home at a National level. I will leave you with this: Isaiah, 26:20, NKJV, “Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you: Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past.” This too will pass my friend, God Bless you and keep you safe, I send you only Love and Health.

    • @BlackSmurfPunk You must be talking about NANCY PELOSI…. 😉

    • @Maria T I get it..!! Now The WORLD is a better place because of MEATBALLS CUOMO…. No more worries or problems of any Kind… All thanks to MEATBALLS CUOMO.. 🤯

  17. Isn’t it about time the USA was renamed ‘States of America’? They’re certainly not united

    • @RanGam 74 done a cracking job with that so far guys. #trump

    • @s2law81 yeah, and the longer we keep him in office, the more progress we’ll see.

    • @s2law81 based on your comments and your reply to Lily frank about Russia, it’s become very obvious that the inbred comment you made actually applies to the folks like you who choose to be misled by the mainstream media, instead of supporting the the person who’s looking out for you, even though you’re clueless about that.

      Sometimes we have to dig down pretty deep to find the truth, other times it’s handed to us and all we have to do is accept it. If you would like to see the truth, I have a gift for you, what you do with it is up to you.

    • @RanGam 74 I didn’t realise the american definition of progress was deaths. How’s his wall progressed? Peace in the middle East? North Korea? Iran? China? Your national deficit? Global warming? – and you talk progress? I pity you.

    • @RanGam 74 Also, to point me in the direction of Trump showcasing Fox news as fact is quite frankly hilarious. You clearly are a lost cause.
