NYC schools unlikely to reopen this year, de Blasio says

De Blasio Calls for Military Action In New York In Response to Coronavirus Outbreak

Mayor De Blasio said New York City is just days away from seeing widespread shortages.

In the northeast, the governors of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey have taken joint action banning gatherings of more than 50 people as well as shutting down schools, restaurants, cinemas, gyms and bars.

"I want to appeal to everyone in the House and Senate, you have got to help cities, towns, countries, states, public hospitals, private hospitals".

"The World market for face masks and ventilators is insane. That's why (putting) all partisanship aside, what's being talked about now in the stimulus bill is crucial.we've got to shore up our hospitals quick".

"I strongly believe they all should be released", de Blasio said during a press briefing.

The top infectious disease expert in the US promised New York City and the other hardest-hit places that critical supplies will not run out. "Millions of different type items coming!"

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio predicted on Monday that the city's public schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year despite being scheduled to reopen next month.

"We're going to make that judgement as we get closer, but at the trajectory we're on now, I can't see it", de Blasio said.

New York state accounted for 114 deaths, mostly in New York City, where there were more than 4,400 infections, but officials warned the concentration may be more because of increased testing.
