Gov. Andrew Cuomo predicted New York will see one more bump in coronavirus situations because of the pandemic’s surge in lots of southern and western states — and admitted the quarantine he imposed on readers from hotspots spots will be unable to end it.
“Look, we’re performing almost everything we can. The quarantine, we have an enforcement system. But, you know, how do you catch anyone driving in, correct? I mean, it is quite extremely difficult, it’s trying to capture drinking water in a screen,” Cuomo stated Friday on WAMC radio.
Cuomo imposed a journey advisory on 19 states with growing COVID-19 bacterial infections — which include California, Florida and Texas — that necessitates website visitors from these locations to quarantine for 14 times on coming into New York.
“You’re going to see our numbers and the Northeast figures probably start out to maximize for the reason that the virus that you see now in the south and the west, California has real trouble, it’s heading to arrive back right here,” he claimed.
The governor mentioned it is a disgrace right after “we defeat [COVID-19] in New York” — next a grueling three month interval of critical lockdowns and social distancing regulations that aided include and lower bacterial infections — to see the killer bug re-emerge.
“The other states never consider the very same safety measures. It rises up in the other states and then is heading to come back again listed here from the other states. That is what is going to take place.
“The only query is how far up our level goes. But you simply cannot have it all throughout the region and not arrive again. You feel nobody’s coming listed here from California and these states?”
