Historically, most of New York’s poll workers have been over the age of 60 — a demographic that is typically vulnerable to the coronavirus. Fortunately, new generations of New Yorkers have stepped up.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that more than 500,000 New Yorkers have now tested positive for COVID-19. More than 2,000 cases were reported Tuesday, bringing the statewide total up to 500,677.
As curious and concerned New Yorkers watch discussions play out about the potential rezoning of SoHo and NoHo, which the city predicts will increase affordable housing opportunities, other groups are looking to appreciate other vulnerable neighborhoods.
Now that the flu season is here, the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reported that 37% more New Yorkers have gotten their flu shot compared to last year.
“Experts recommend sticking to your daily routine even when working from home” New Yorkers and Londoners:
I wish I could promise New Yorkers this will be over soon. I can't. Here's what I can promise. I will continue to give you the facts and I will make decisions based on science and data. New Yorkers deserve nothing less.
We are not willing to sacrifice 1-2% of New Yorkers. That’s not who we are. We will fight to save every life we can. I am not giving up.
