New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio Warns Half Of All New Yorkers Will Get Coronavirus

Published

on


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned his city tonight that half the population, more than 4 million New Yorkers, will get the coronavirus.

“It’s a fair bet to say that half of all New Yorkers and maybe more than half will end up contracting this disease,” de Blasio said at a City Hall press briefing about the outbreak. 

New York City’s positive cases approached 18,000 with nearly 200 reported deaths, according to the New York Post. “That’s worrisome, very deeply worrisome,” he added.

De Blasio’s health commissioner, Dr. Oxiris Barbot, said the percentage could be even worse by the fall. “We think 50 percent by the end of this epidemic, this pandemic, so by the time September rolls around likely 50 percent, but it could also be much higher,” Dr. Barbot said.

De Blasio added that they have yet to identify the first person to bring it to NYC, even though officials had previously identified a Manhattan health care worker who’d returned from Iran as the first case in early March.

“We don’t even know truly when it first asserted here in the city,” de Blasio said.

He cautioned his citizens that 80 percent of people who contract the disease will have mild symptoms.

Barbot said there are currently “tens of thousands of New Yorkers” who’ve already contracted COVID-19 or been exposed to the contagious virus.

“That’s why it’s so important for people to stay home,” she said. “We don’t want all those people to be seeking health care at the same time.”

The city’s hospital system is nearing its breaking point with a shortage of beds and protective gear for its medical professionals.

The shortage of safety gear at Mount Sinai West in Manhattan is so dire that desperate nurses have resorted to wearing trash bags — and some blame the situation for the coronavirus death of a beloved colleague.

We’ll keep you posted on any updates.

Bob Dylan’s “Murder Most Foul” Is His First No. 1 Song on Any Billboard Chart

Published

on


Bob Dylan won a Nobel Prize in literature in 2016, but today marked a new accomplishment: his first No. 1 hit. According to Billboard, Dylan’s new song “Murder Most Foul” has topped its Rock Digital Song Sales chart—his first No. 1 under his own name on any chart.

Dylan surprise released the 17-minute “Murder Most Foul,” which addresses the JFK assassination, on March 27. According to Nielsen data, it sold 10,000 downloads between its release and April 2. The song was his first new music since his 2012 album Tempest. As Billboard points out, others have had No. 1 hits with songs Dylan wrote: Peter Paul & Mary in 1963 with “Blowin’ in the Wind,” and the Byrds in 1965 with “Mr. Tambourine Man.” His highest charting singles previously were a handful of No. 2 slots. “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” reached No. 2 on the Hot 100 in 1965 and 1966, respectively, and “Things Have Changed” rose to the No. 2 spot on the Adult Alternative Songs chart in 2000. He has a summer tour of the United States scheduled to begin in June.

According to Fox 8, when shoppers entered the store they were handed slips that read, “Random Act of Kindness” and upon checking out they were told their groceries were paid for.

One of the recipients of his generosity stated he saw a grocery bag over the credit card reader and proceeded to take it off, but he was stopped.

“I was almost done shopping, so that wasn’t a big deal,” he said. When he arrived, he saw a Kroger grocery bag over the credit card reader and was about to take it off when the cashier told him that he didn’t need to worry. Perry, she said, had his $290 in groceries covered.”

Also, according to 11 Alive, the media mogul only wanted to be referred to as “Atlanta Angel.”

As we reported, Tyler Perry was in the news, last week, for tipping a total of $21,000 to 42 Atlanta restaurant employees.

During times like this, it is good to see those who can give back do just that.
