NY Gov Cuomo Says New York Has Most COVID-19 Cases Because Of ‘We Welcome People’

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

The same state whose reputation is also the meanest… ? Are we talking about the same state?

Breitbart reported:

“Because we welcome people from across the globe,” he said. “We have people coming here, we have people who came here from China, who came here from Italy, who came here from all across the globe.”

Cuomo said that he believed that the virus was in New York City long before people even knew it was a problem.

“I had no doubt that the virus was here much earlier than we even know,” he said. “And I have no doubt that the virus was here much earlier than it was in any other state, because those people come here first.”

Cuomo noted that the living conditions, transportation, restaurants, and other avenues of entertainment are all in such close quarters, adding to his assumption as to why New York has such a significantly higher number of cases.

More from Breitbart:

New York currently has 30,811 cases, California has 2,644 cases, Washington state has 2,404 cases and Massachusetts has 1,159 cases.

But he said that the greatest weakness of New Yorkers was also their greatest strength.

“Our closeness is what makes us special,” he said, noting that New Yorkers were more open, accepting and tolerant than the rest of the world.

“The closeness is that New York humanity that I think exists nowhere else,” he said.

New York has NEVER been known as the state of friendly and welcoming people. It’s a very popular tourist state and the residents reportedly get irritated with the closeness, the crowds of people, and, supposedly, everyone is always in such a rush. Not to mention, traffic and sidewalks are constantly congested and the state holds the second highest rate of homelessness.

I can’t imagine any of these factors contribute to healthy sanitary conditions that would have prevented the COVID-19 spread…

According to the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness:

As of January 2019, New York had an estimated 92,091 experiencing homelessness on any given day, as reported by Continuums of Care to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Of that Total, 15,901 were family households, 1,270 were Veterans, 2,978 were unaccompanied young adults (aged 18-24), and 7,229 were individuals experiencing chronic homelessness.

Then, of course, we have California holding the highest rate of homelessness –

As of January 2019, California had an estimated 151,278 experiencing homelessness on any given day, as reported by Continuums of Care to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Of that Total, 7,044 were family households, 10,980 were Veterans, 11,993 were unaccompanied young adults (aged 18-24), and 41,557 were individuals experiencing chronic homelessness.
