Patriot Retort: On Sunday the New York Times reported that the New York City area has become the epicenter of the Wuhan virus outbreak in the US.
Really? The epicenter? Ya think?!
More than 15,000 people in New York State have tested positive for COVID-19. And most of those New York cases are concentrated in the NYC metropolitan area. As of last weekend, the NYC area accounted for 10,764 cases. Of those, 1,800 are hospitalized.
The Times quotes New York’s inept mayor Bill de Blasio who said, “We are now, in New York City, the epicenter of this crisis in the United States of America. I am not happy to tell you that. You’re not happy to hear it.”
That’s a very different tone from the guy who just twenty days earlier tweeted out this.
