The Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo believes that they must have gone past the coronavirus danger point, as the number of cases seems to be on a decline. Although, this statement is up for debate as 507 New Yorkers have died in the last week. But to somewhat negate this wildly upsetting news, the number of hospitalization cases seem to be going downwards, signifying the flattening of the curve. And yet, there is always a giant ‘if’ in question.
“If the data holds, and if this trend holds, we are past the high point,” said Cuomo during a press briefing at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in Manhasset, LI.
“The recent news is good, that we are on the other side of the plateau and the numbers are coming down,” he said. “But that’s good news only compared to the terrible news that we were living with, which is that constant increase.”
While one could rejoice that the curve was slowly but surely getting flattened, Cuomo has given away a strict reminder – this isn’t the end of the race. There is still a long way to go before people start thinking about life going back to normal.
