The impact on the families’ economy is going to be great, which is why the mayor mentioned the possibility of freezing rents. “The only way to do this is through New York State. Everyone must come together to reach this agreement,” he said.

Pilot plan begins ‘Open Streets’

From this Friday until next Monday four streets of Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and The Bronx (Staten island will be included later if the plan works) will be pedestrian corridors from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The measure is part of a pilot plan that takes place in the city for New Yorkers to leave their homes to relax from quarantine.

  • Manhattan, on Park Avenue, 28th to 34th streets.
  • Brooklyn, on Bushwick Avenue, between Johnson and Flushing Avenues.
  • Queens, at 34th Avenue, between 73rd and 89th Streets.
  • Bronx, on Grand Concourse, between East Burnside and 184th Street.

Faced with controversy that a small number of streets would reduce space, and therefore would not help with compliance with social distancing rules, Mayor Bill de Blasio said the plan was limited in order to enforce order – since the police are supposed to be on duty – so that pedestrians don’t use the newly allocated space to congregate too close.

“We wanted to strike a balance,” de Blasio said, continuing: “So we decided on a very limited number experimentally, certainly a number that the New York Police and other agencies could count.

However, there are many social indisciplines that have been seen these days. Univision News 41 cameras scanned the streets of Queens, the county that has had the most cases of covid-19 on Thursday, and captured sick people sitting on the ground waiting to be treated at a pharmacy, while in another people asked their medications and were never taken care of. A few blocks later, old people lined up to receive a plate of food, which they would then eat sharing the same bench on the street.

The concern that hundreds of people on the streets do not respect the rule of keeping the distance of six feet, remains latent. Meanwhile, hundreds more face the coronavirus from a hospital bed.

At the Elmurst Hospital in Queens, not only can hundreds of people be seen lining up outside for the coronavirus testInstead, images inside the center, obtained by The New York Times after being taken by Dr. Colleen Smith, show the current situation of the health crisis in the city.

Crowded emergency rooms, where 200 patients are regularly seen, now receive at least 400 a day; A refrigerated truck has been installed at the rear of the center to place the bodies of people killed by the coronavirus, and fans are already running low. For their part, health officials have to reuse protective equipment over and over again.

March 26

New York City confirmed, in its daily afternoon report, that coronavirus cases in New York City they increased to 23,112, including 365 deaths.

Just hours before, Mayor Bill de Blasio had given the day appearance of 21,893 cases of covid-19 and 281 deaths, which means that in just hours 84 deaths took place in the city.

7,362 cases are reported in Queens, 4,046 in Manhattan, 6,095 in Brooklyn, 4,243 in the Bronx, and 1,330 in Staten Island. To date, 4,720 people have been hospitalized.

“We are confident in the resilience of New Yorkers, but it is going to be a long road and a long fight,” de Blasio said at a news conference, who also thanked all health workers, who “are making a chapter in history. “

“You will receive the supplies you need every day,” de Blasio said, adding: “We need federal aid to continue supporting them.”

This Thursday 43 were sent fans to that hospital, as well as 56 workers to support the staff of that center.

“Before the coronavirus we had 20,000 hospital beds, and just a week ago we had a system in place for demand. Now, however, that number is only part of what the city needs,” de Blasio said. Beds are only one of the parts that the health system needs, accompanied by personnel, fans, equipment … The mayor said they hope to triple that number of hospital beds.

The city is asking all hospitals to increase their capacity, with at least 7,000 extra beds.

To date, 200 prisoners have been released, achieving a record number. New York City’s prison population is shrinking, dropping to a record number since 1949. A total of 375 inmates are expected to regain their freedom soon.

At a press conference Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the New York City hospitals are two to three weeks out of essential supplements. “For April we will need 3 million masks and 15 thousand fans,” de Blasio said and reaffirmed this Friday.

The only way to curb that is through a federal order that would mobilize the United States Armed Forces to act fully in this situation. De Blasio said the military’s first-class medical equipment, logistical support, and ability to take factory supplies to where they are most needed are needed.
