New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state has diagnosed more than 10,000 cases of the Chinese coronavirus, a milestone for an area of the country proving to be a hotspot for the disease.
The news was announced in a daily briefing on the state’s containment efforts on Saturday.
Cuomo explained that the levels of diagnoses may be related to the increased availability of coronavirus tests in the state. Cuomo recieved authorization to implement new drive-through testing centers in the state.
“We are taking more tests in New York than any place else. We’re taking more tests per capita than China or South Korea.”
Cuomo’s press conference did contain some good news, announcing that positive tests in Long Island and Nassau County were starting to level off.
Cuomo also announced that the state would be providing more than a million respiratory masks to citizens in New York City. New York has skyrocketed ahead of Washington in total numbers of diagnoses by state, taking first place easily.
UPDATE: We are sending 1 million N95 masks to New York City.
500,000 N95 masks will go to Long Island.
We are purchasing 6,000 additional ventilators and gathering supplies from every source we can get.

To the Democratic Governor’s credit, he has overseen the state’s response to the epidemic in a relatively even-handed and comprehensive fashion. He thanked President Trump for his cooperation with the state government earlier this week, sharply contrasting with Democratic hacks who jumped upon the global pandemic as an opportunity to hector Trump.
Medical Journal Suggests Loss of Employment for Any Person Who Refuses to Take COVID-19 Vaccine
The Orwellian nightmare is really starting to take shape due to the pandemic.
An article in the New England Journal of Medicine has suggested that “substantive penalties” be used to enforce compliance in taking the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine, including loss of employment.
The journal published an article on June 26 titled, “Ensuring Uptake of Vaccines against SARS-CoV-2.” They suggested that the suspension of employment would be a less coercive manner of enforcing vaccine compliance than fines or other criminal penalties.
The report states that “state mandates should not be structured as compulsory vaccination (absolute requirements); instead, noncompliance should incur a penalty.”
“Nevertheless, because of the infectiousness and dangerousness of the virus, relatively substantive penalties could be justified, including employment suspension or stay-at-home orders for persons in designated high-priority groups who refuse vaccination. Neither fines nor criminal penalties should be used, however; fines disadvantage the poor, and criminal penalties invite legal challenges on procedural due-process grounds. Both are bad public health policy for a Covid-19 vaccine because they may stoke distrust without improving uptake,” the report continues.
The authors of the report are particularly perturbed that fewer than half of Americans plan to get the COVID-19 inoculation when it is available. They are focused on public policy proposal that would coerce more Americans into getting stuck with the shot.
“As with social distancing orders, we can expect that the advent of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will spark intense clashes of feeling about what people owe to one another in the fight against the pandemic. In contrast to earlier phases of the pandemic, though, we currently have some time on our side. Careful deliberation now about state vaccination policy can help ensure that we have a strategy when the breakthrough comes,” the report states.
Big League Politics has reported on the mad frenzy to create a COVID-19 vaccine for mass consumption as quickly as possible to capitalize on the mass hysteria:
President Donald Trump has launched “Operation Warp Speed” to funnel resources toward Big Pharma for the purposes of creating a vaccine shot that will be ready for mass distribution throughout the country by the end of the year.
The White House is calling this a Manhattan Project-style project that aims to get vaccines into as many people as quickly as possible, in a move that must have technocratic oligarch Bill Gates grinning ear-to-ear.
“Operation Warp Speed is clearly another extension of President Trump’s bold leadership and unwillingness to accept ‘business as usual’ approaches to addressing the COVID-19 crisis,” said Michael Caputo, who works as assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services.
The project is expected to cost the U.S. taxpayer billions of dollars, with much of that money going into the coffers of Big Pharma, and they hope to have 100 million doses ready by the end of the year. It is unclear if these vaccines would even improve the public health, as the government’s own data shows that regular influenza vaccines are only effective 40 percent of the time.
The Trump administration is working along with disgraced globalist organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) in using the coronavirus pandemic for a vaccine push.
“We are scientists, physicians, funders and manufacturers who have come together as part of an international collaboration, coordinated by the World Health Organization (WHO), to help speed the availability of a vaccine against COVID-19,” dozens of so-called experts declared in a WHO press release.
“While a vaccine for general use takes time to develop, a vaccine may ultimately be instrumental in controlling this worldwide pandemic… We will continue efforts to strengthen the unprecedented worldwide collaboration, cooperation and sharing of data already underway. We believe these efforts will help reduce inefficiencies and duplication of effort, and we will work tenaciously to increase the likelihood that one or more safe and effective vaccines will soon be made available to all,” they added.
COVID-19 is being used as an excuse to justify all kinds of Big Brother overreach as power-grabbing bureaucrats and scientists are not about to let this crisis go to waste.
