Despite what the media tells you every minute of every day, things are getting better. It may be a bumpy road to recovery, but don’t listen to the fearmongers – we can get there.
Today, New York City, the epicenter of the outbreak, has recorded no new deaths from the virus for the first time since the start of the pandemic.
The Washington Examiner reports:
New York City recorded zero deaths from the coronavirus for the first time since the pandemic hit the city in March.
The onetime epicenter of the health crisis reported Sunday that no coronavirus-related deaths took place on Saturday, according to initial data from the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Officials recorded no confirmed deaths from the virus on Friday as well but did report two probable deaths.
Of course, the virus is still raging in other parts of the country, but so far, no region has come close to the death tolls expericened by New York.
That may have something to do with better protections for the elderly – New York’s Andrew Cuomo famously botched New York’s nursing homes policy – or it may have to do with younger populations getting sick.
Regardless of why, we haven’t seen a repeat of New York, and New York itself is on the mend. That’s bad news if you work for a mainstream media outlet and want to continue to prey on the American public with fear and pessimism, but good news if you’re anyone but the predatory media.
