Why New York Is US Epicenter of Coronavirus Pandemic

During the Wuhan virus crisis, New York’s authoritarian Governor Andrew Cuomo is emerging as a favorite among his fellow lefties. There is even talk of dumping the walking train wreck Joe Biden and installing Cuomo at the top of the ticket at the Democrat Convention. Cuomo explains why his state is the epicenter for the virus in the USA:

Cuomo said Wednesday that the state was getting hit hardest in the United States because of their welcoming spirit.

This comes from the guy who announced that those who support the Second Amendment, or who oppose abortion or sexual deviancy, “have no place in the state of New York.”

Here’s something that might have done more to accelerate the spread of COVID-19 than New York’s welcoming spirit:

Meanwhile, the moonbats running New York City have been closing down streets:

A small stretch of four streets will temporarily close to vehicular traffic as the city tests out a pilot program providing more social distancing space during the coronavirus pandemic.

Whether making it even harder to travel in the privacy of your car will enhance social distancing is doubtful. Most likely, they just want to seize on this pretext to advance their agenda. That agenda entails fewer cars and more crowding.

Cuomo admits that the oppressive crowding that characterizes New York has contributed to the spread of the virus…

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.

Just don’t try walking down the street wearing a MAGA hat.

Here’s another factor that contributed more than welcoming spirit:

New York City Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot posted a tweet on February 9 urging citizens to flock to Chinatown in large numbers to celebrate the lunar new year while suggesting that advice to avoid crowds was “misinformation.” …

On the same day, Mark D. Levine, Chair of New York City Council health committee, lauded how “huge crowds gathering in NYC’s Chinatown” was a “powerful show of defiance of #coronavirus scare,” tweeting four images of large groups of people gathered to celebrate the occasion.

Encourage large gatherings of Chinese — many of whom have presumably visited the homeland recently — in America’s largest city after a deadly virus has begun exploding out of China. What could go wrong?

If Dems manage to get Cuomo into the White House, we could have the same New York bureaucrats running the country.
