Gov. Andrew Cuomo got right to the point Wednesday when asked about calls by people to end the shutdown. While he expressed sympathy for those out of work and facing economic pain, he pointed out that right now, with a virus still killing hundreds of New Yorkers per day, it's "not about me, it's about we." The governor said those who want to go back to work should "take a job as an essential worker. Do it tomorrow."
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo dismissed the notion that the restrictions put in place might be doing more damage than coronavirus itself.
