The United States has increased to a minimum of 1.48 million people infected with the new coronavirus, and more than 89,000 people have died. In New York State, where the epidemic is most severe, more than 1,800 cases have been added in the past day and more than 139 people have died. Governor Como said that the New York State epidemic has slowed down and decided to relax the restrictions in two regions. At present, 7 of the 10 regions in the state can be gradually unsealed and the economy is partially restarted. The remaining three regions with severe epidemics, including New York City, maintain strict epidemic prevention measures. These three districts account for about 70% of the state ’s population.
Como has approved northern and central New York State to restart some economic activities a few days ago, including allowing industries including construction to resume work in compliance with safety guidelines.
Como also pointed out that it will expand the virus detection plan, will set up 700 checkpoints and increase sample collection points in the state, hoping to increase the daily detection volume to 40,000. At the press conference, he personally sampled and sampled by medical staff for testing. He emphasized that the process is very simple, and called on everyone to accept virus testing if they find that they have a cold or suspect infection.
Como also said that if the local new pneumonia epidemic continues to slow down, he will allow the restart of horse racing and racing, but emphasized that there must be no crowds and supporters gathered, that is, to close the door to race. The arrangement will be economically feasible and will be a good thing.
