Not for lack of political willpower, Staten Island has come to represent 25% of all COVID-19 deaths in New York City amid the second wave of the pandemic, even though the borough represents just 5% of the city's population. Governor Andrew Cuomo, during a Wednesday press conference, emphasized the political nature of this reality as a direct result of misdirection from local leaders taking opposition to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which have influenced some of the measures put in place by the state limiting dining and other activities.
Okay, now here's the actual data from NYCDOH's site as of yesterday.
So it's been a while since I had 3rd grade math, but how does Staten Island have 1/4 of the deaths in NYC when 4/20 is not 25%?
Isn't 20 deaths a day relatively small compared to where we were back in April?
Now, let's do hospitalizations.
So, why are you reading all of this here rather than in the paid media who investigates nothing Cuomo says?
