I saw that on the news, what that doctor had to say is chilling.

Just what we need...another virus thread

You get the government you deserve. Elect tools like this to represent you, you have to live with the results of their decisions.

Why is it that sanctuary liberal managed cities are the virus hotspots?

https://www.amny.com/editorial/city-...-in-chinatown/

FTA:

Queens state Senator John Liu said the virus has not only caused “unreasonable fears,” but he said, “I’ve been somewhat disturbed if not outright appalled at some of the comments and gestures that I’ve seen and my constituents have seen against the Asian community.”

“There is no need to cast aspersions on an entire community because this is happening,” Liu charged. “Diseases originate in particular places in the world and this came from an area of China which is a very large country. The comments being made by some people are unreasonable, if not downright offensive.”

He assured the crowd that “every precaution” was being taken – just like every flu season, and asserted that there is no reason to anyone to panic or avoid the activities in Chinatown or anywhere else.

New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot, fresh off her press conference from the night before at Bellevue with the mayor, assured the public that they were taking every step to insure the safety of the public. At this time, she said the 40-year-old woman being held in isolation at Bellevue Hospital since Friday was in “stable condition” and doing well, but test results have not come back from the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta. The woman had been in China days before and took the precaution of going to the hospital when she felt ill.

Dr. Barbot said it was “understandable that people were anxious when there is something new or something they don’t understand and something that may change on our daily basis.”

“The importance of events like this is to share with New Yorkers the reality that there is some things that we know, some things we don’t know and we are still learning,” Dr. Barbot said. “The risk for New Yorkers of the coronavirus is low, and our preparedness as a city is very high. While it is understandable that people feel anxious, that is no way shape or form an excuse for them to use that as an opportunity to spread misinformation, to spread racist ideas because that is currently the greatest risk to New Yorker’s.”

Dr. Barbot said residents should instead, “come together, know the information and share that information.” But she warned, “rumors can be as dangerous as any virus"...

Yeah, that's Elmhurst General, yes?

That's NYC's "real" Chinatown.

They've all merged. Mt. Sinai is the umbrella.


Maximum, maybe three miles apart.

Millions, literally, millions left China for the New Year's holiday, and thousands travelled from here to there for the same.

And back, both ways.

The Flushing neighborhood in Queens is Chinatown now, it's not lower Manhattan, though that has expanded. Little Italy has disappeared.

This is the reaping.

Flushing has been little China for a long time.

Hope she stays safe. You and she are aware so hope all can avoid the virus

NOW ABOUT THIS:
"You get the government you deserve. Elect tools like this to represent you, you have to live with the results of their decisions."

Living in CA I get this all the time - you know how his daughter votes? If not what the reason for the comment? Ya they held up the response but we have no idea if his daughter contributed to the problem.

If you were familiar with the elected representatives in NYC, it might be more clear. I took it as a general observation.

I certainly didn't vote for them, but they're what I'm forced to live with.

kinda like your original post, eh.

Let me broaden your horizions:

The part of my posts that put your panties in a wad was a paraphrase of one of Thomas Jefferson's most used quotes:

“The government you elect is the government you deserve.”

Just a taste of what was being said and done by the elected reps in NYC as this unfolded.
