The state of New York, the epicenter of the Covid-19 epidemic in the United States, recorded 540 deaths in the past 24 hours, the lowest daily toll in 15 days, as state governor Andrew Cuomo announced.
The last lowest daily death toll was recorded in the state, with a population of 20 million, on 2 April and amounted to 432 deaths, according to the Covid Tracking Project website.
The number of deaths in a single day in the state reached 799 cases on April 9, the highest since.
But the state’s governor, who announced Thursday that the isolation measures will be extended until May 15, remains cautious, especially since 2,000 people have been hospitalized since yesterday, due to an infection of the new Coronavirus, according to Cuomo.
“We are not at a stage of a significant surge in casualties, but we are not yet out of the crisis,” Cuomo declared.
The Democratic Governor also called for unity.
Since the weekend, Cuomo and President Donald Trump have been criticizing social media and media.
“There is no place for show policy,” Cuomo said on Saturday, adding, “How can the situation get worse and faster?”
If all these feelings are politicized.
We cannot allow that”.
Quoting the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, “Let’s hold each other’s hands and work together to get out of the crisis”.
This is why they call us the United States, right?
Unity is the key… We need this unity today more than ever.
