by bigr10published on August 3, 2020

Been doing an extraordinary job the port authority does among other things the administration of the airports building the new john f kennedy rebuilding jfk so he's been doing double duty and uh we have a great

Announcement today that we joined in this morning which i'm going to chat about in a moment today is day 156 for those who are counting if you're not counting it's still date

156 number of hospitalizations 536 what does that number mean it is a new low since uh we were in the midst of the battle so that is great news

Number of covert patients in icu 136 also a new low since the height of the crisis number of intubations 62 also a new low so that's great news number of lives lost a new low on the

Three-day average three people passed away yesterday so this is really all great great news and i congratulate new yorkers because this is purely a result of the

Actions that they've been taking the progress is even better than we expected remember when we started reopening all the experts said expect the infection rate

To increase when the activity rate increases that's what you've seen all across the country that's what you've seen in other countries and that's what we expected here

We then were talking about calibrating the increase and making sure it didn't go that high but it was supposed to go up after two two and a half months of reopening

The numbers have actually gone down which nobody suggested and that is really uh to complement new yorkers we started reopening may 15th that's where it was on the curve you

Call it a curve i call it a descent of the mountain we get to the same place we just have different metaphorical images but that's where the reopening started

Since the reopening the numbers continue to go down no expert predicted that so new yorkers are doing better than anyone else even expected cautious still

Well why shouldn't we be celebrating because look around that's why look at what's going on across the country look at those increases look at what we're dealing with in terms of now 39

States on the quarantine list and look at incidents of lack of compliance the numbers are a result of the actions and we have been disciplined and we have to stay disciplined in terms

Of enforcement local governments have to do a better job i don't know how else to say it we're doing everything we can on the state side the sla and the state police are working double

Duty we have a problem with young people and lack of compliance we have a problem especially at bars and restaurants last night they did another 29

Violations they checked 874 establishments over the weekend they checked 3 000 establishments and did 106 violations all this to say to the bars and

Restaurants follow the rules because if you don't follow the rules chances are likelihood hood is someone's going to be there to watch and to check

And that's the way it should be if you're following the rules fine if you're not filing the rules if i were you i would be worried and that's the way it should be we're seeing

Continued situations that are just not intelligent and local governments have to crack down on these whether they're in new york city or long island or they're in upstate new york

How a charter boat could put together a crowd on deck and leave it's just it's disrespectful it's illegal it is it not only violates public health it violates
