New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is scheduled to carry a press briefing Wednesday on the Covid-19 vaccine distribution plans as the menace of one other financial shutdown looms over the state.
Last week, Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio famous that the state would possibly shut nonessential companies in some areas in January. For weeks, Cuomo has mentioned that he’ll implement extra restrictions in elements of the state the place hospitals are overwhelmed to the level that they can not care for each affected person.
But he has famous that it is as much as residents of New York to observe public well being precautions to restrict the unfold of the coronavirus and keep away from a shutdown.
“Of course a shutdown in January is possible,” Cuomo mentioned final week. “But there’s a big but,” he mentioned, spelling the phrase out one letter at a time “B-U-T.”
