NEW YORK CITY: 3600+ VIRUS CASES -- 22 DEAD, SO FAR / NJ Cases Rising

18 Comments

The COVID-19 death toll in New York City has hit 22, with 3,615 positive cases of coronavirus in NYC, more than half of the state total.

The hardest-hit boroughs are Brooklyn, with 1030 cases; Queens, with 980 cases; and Manhattan, with 976 patients. Rounding out the cases are 436 in the Bronx and 165 on Staten Island.

As of 5 p.m. Wednesday, there were 554 people hospitalized with 169 of those people in the ICU.

Earlier Thursday, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that more than half of the total positive cases are in New York City.

Meantime, an Amazon worker at a delivery station in Queens has tested positive, while New York City's first drive-thru mobile testing facility opens Thursday on Staten Island by appointment only.

 

NEW JERSEY

New Jersey state officials confirmed another four deaths related to complications from coronavirus Thursday, as cases statewide continued their steep climb, up by 318 to 742, Gov. Phil Murphy said.

The new deaths include a Bergen County man in his 30s, said Judith Persichilli, the state health commissioner. The other new deaths include an Essex County man in his 60s, a Monmouth County woman in her 70s, and an Ocean County man in his 70s.

Nine people have now died from coronavirus complications in New Jersey. Three of those were residents of two long term care facilities, one in Essex County and one in Hudson County, Persichilli said. Visitors to long term care facilities in the state have been prohibited, she said, except for end-of-life situations.

Bergen County continues to be the virus epicenter for the state, with 195 cases, a jump of 81 on Thursday.  Middlesex County has 64 cases, Essex County has 63, Hudson has 55, Monmouth has 43 and Passaic has 38. Ocean County now has 33 cases, with 25 new ones Thursday. All but two of New Jersey's 21 counties now have cases. The  numbers have been spiking as testing increases.

 

While health officials say those at greatest risk from the virus are people over 60 years old with underlying medical conditions, the youngest case so far in New Jersey is a 3-year-old. The oldest is 95.

Murphy emphasized that young people should abide by efforts at social distancing. "Young people are getting a little more sick from this than it looked a week ago," he said.

      This morning the Portland Mayor did draft the declaration and distribute it to surrounding cities and counties. He basically primed the pump, so it was 50% on point.

    OK so...China lets the virus out. They have 1.4 billion folks. They also know they can lock them up to keep some alive. Say, 20% die. They still have more than 1.0 billion folks. However, as they covered it up, and tried to make western nations continue to allow these sickos to travel here.....

    They know we can't lock ourselves down like they can....they are a dictatorship! So, we get tons of sick folks who then die. 20% of America perishes....and we go bonkers, think Mad Max. Easy pickings for say....China? Think its far fetched? They plan in 50 year increments. We plan for the next quarter. Who wins? What if China actually has an antidote, and is giving it in those "street fogs" that I saw? You know, where they go down streets with machines blowing some white smoke out? As if anyone with a brain believes that can sterilize anything? Maybe it had a cure in there.

    China says back to normal by Q2. How can that be? Unless they have inoculated everyone?

    No way did China not know what is going on. Otherwise, like Hal said, why lock down 50M or 100M people over 50 deaths as originally reported? The logic simply does not add up. There is more here going on.

      Trump has already Declared a State of National Emergency, which authorizes him to use the Military on U.S. soil legally, should that be needed to ensure quarantines are secure.

      The Mayor of NYC has been asking Trump to send U.S. troops to NYC. So we might be seeing some of this soon. The U.S. Military has bases all over the USA, it wouldn't take much time to put them in place, if needed. Hot spots may need it in densely populated areas. Other areas either not hot spots and/or not densely populated, may not require such actions to keep Quarantines in place.

    It is all ill wind...
    In Israel Netanyahu has failed to form a government after 3 elections in a year.
    And he is facing corruption charges.
    So now he has closed the courts and parliament, and wants a vote giving him immunity from prosecution to open them !

    Just heard POTUS say their is a possible cure generally used to treat malaria. Chloroquine Hydroxy. Apparently cures this virus 100%. I've been using chlorine dioxide. Sounds very similar and I bet it is. Seems to be working well for me. It's cheap and if they get this out soon their should be no mandatory vaccinations necessary. We have a great President for all you haters out there. He was put in a very horrible position. But God is good and he is helping our President defeat these traitors!

      The Chloroquine was mentioned here in a link from someone. It was used to cure SARS, only problem is, it doesn't prevent it, it can only cure it if you have the disease. It was moderately effective on COVID-19 (at least one mutation of it.)

    As of 2000 hrs tonight (8:00 pm for you civilians (happy)) all non-life sustaining businesses must close. Interestingly, there is a 6 page document that lists which businesses are allowed to remain open. See link:

    Does anyone realize that life in America is never going to be the same after this shutdown. I expect a ban on interstate travel soon. Nevada casino's are shutdown. All those small businesses in Nevada are in a world of hurt right now and I'm afraid many will not survive.
    Shutting down the whole US Economy was one of the most stupidest things government has ever done.

      Deborah Cresswell · 20 days ago
      If the governments in the USA were doing nothing and letting this deadly pandemic spread unchecked, then I would say yes you are right, because 3/4 of the U.S. population will be dead.

      However, since our government is taking action and locking down the hot spots, and cautioning everyone else, I think the "worst case scenario" will not pan out.

      I think Quarantines will remain for 2 months possibly 3, but that will be it. Then everyone will go back to work again.

      China locked down some cities after just a few cases discovered, and those cities (like the one near Hong Kong) have already gone back to work again.

      The only "if" here, is did the gov't in the USA lock down soon enough to stop this thing. So little testing was done, no one knows the true state of things. But quarantining will help immensely. Since this is not a 3rd world country of a lot of ignorant and/or illiterate people, I think we can count on 99% of the population to respect the quarantines. Some idiots will be reckless of course, but they will pay the place and conveniently remove their genes from our gene pool.....and receive their "Darwin Awards". But most Americans "get it".

      Been saying that to ppl for a while now, but no one I know seems to believe it, not even my half-awake Dad. I am glad people on this channel can see it---things are not going to be the same, yet folks are walking around like posting their current breakfast on Facebook is still so important. *shrugs* Guess they will remain ignorant til the bitter end. And it will be very bitter for them. The people that fare the best will be the most self-sufficient that have seen this coming for years. I hear terms like "when this blows over" and "when things get back to normal" -- and I cringe. Back to normal will never happen again.

      Totally agree. As for the economy, how convenient for the NWO b@stards, bankers and oligarchs huh? Population reduction for the likes of Bill & Melinda Gates foundation and similar demon possessed NGO's who embrace depopulation. Too many things can now go sideways in favor of the NWO elites... and all the sheople will walk right off the cliff when led. Something to think about.

        First things first. The USA depends on resource transfer from richer to poorer states. When the rich look after themselves - the USA will disintegrate .
        Just as the USSR did when they went bankrupt due to the arms race.
        OH, oh, oh the irony

    Here in Galveston Island, the city made the announcement to close all bars and open eating establishments. ON THE SAME DAY, they totally REVERSED the announcement! So apparently the big movers and shakers, the corporations here threw a fit since it's spring break. So, believe it or not, the beaches here are occupied, the stores are open and the restaurants are all open. I talked to a guy that has a friend that works for UTMB hospital. He said they have many people under quarantine but doesn't know if they have been tested. In Galveston county, they have several confirmed cases. Yet, pressure from the business sector her has forced he city to keep things open. This is not surprising. After hurricane IKE, there were so many dead bodies here that they had to bring in several refrigerated tractor trailer units in to collect the bodies. Hundreds of dead yet the official count according to the city was 7. Welcome to the south!

      What few people realise is that the JIT (just in time) methodology that is used in manufacturing cars is also applied to money.
      Apple has accumulated a trillion dollars in cash - at the other end we have ZHC (zero hour contract) people who are days away from hunger.

      tonic water has quinine in it. The "magic" happens because the quinine pushes zinc into the cells making it hard for RNA part of the virus to reproduce. Gin and tonics came about in India and Africa to combat malaria (same thing chloroquinine is for)

      That drug has been first used in S korea with fairly good results. Combined with zpak seems to work even better. These two drugs will cost about 40 cents in S Korea. Once big pharma gets into this they will raise the prices and pocket a trillion dollars.

      I added a link from local source in Mayors decision to close down non-essential business and services. BUT we need more information on National Guard activations and deployments. We live in a camera phone world so we should be able to get verification vs. my buddy told me. We need to all work at solid source verification.

        I sent a text to one of my older sisters to confirm. She lives in the area. Then again, I have relatives in Boston, MA, All over Florida, Tennessee, Ohio, West Virginia, Texas, Iowa, California, Idaho and Seattle Washington. Probably a few others places. I have friends I trust in just about every state except Alaska, Hawaii, New Hampshire and Maine.

        Nation Guard is out in Miami-Dade to help with medical testing, per the local news down there, states my sister. (I hope it isn't the Clinton (Communist) News Network she listens too. just saying...
