Governor Andrew Cuomo said New Yorkers should be prepared for widespread business closures and stay-at-home orders to last for months to combat the surge in coronavirus cases. "This is not a short term situation," he said in a Sunday briefing with reporters. "This is not a long weekend. This is not a week."

"But it will spread, it is that contagious."

God Bless Trump and Capitalism.

I am sure this helped
