New York Governor Andrew Como said on Friday that he needed federal assistance to increase new Corona virus screening and reopen the state’s economy and seemed to criticize President Donald Trump’s administration for failing to provide funding to states.
Is there any funding so that I can do these things that you want us to do?” Como said in a daily statement. No that is a transfer of responsibility without transferring funds
The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the United States exceeded 680,000, after rising by nearly 33,000 on Thursday. The number of new cases registered increased for three days in a row, the highest number of cases since April 10, when it reached a record number of 35,715 new cases.
The number of deaths from the emerging coronavirus around the world has reached 150,000.
The first death was in central China’s Wuhan city on January 9. It took 83 days to record the first 50,000 deaths, and then it took only eight days to bring the number of deaths to 100,000. And it took another eight days to reach the number of 150 thousand deaths.
Corona remains less than the Spanish flu deaths that began in 1918 and it is estimated that they killed more than 20 million people before they ended in 1920.
