New York State Governor Andrew Como criticized the government and other states on Monday for failing to seriously address the Corona virus crisis after seeing the devastation caused by the pandemic in his state during the spring.
Como said that states where the disease is currently jumping, such as Texas and Florida, have followed the federal government's approach to downplaying the epidemic, causing it to reopen its economies very early, according to Reuters. Commenting on the federal government's handling of the pandemic, Como said, "This was the worst mistake of a US government in recent history ... Denying the reality that happened in New York was a mistake." Como said the number of people infected with the virus in state hospitals was limited to 536, the lowest level since March.
