Cuomo says it's still too soon to close NYC despite de Blasio warning second lockdown is imminent as he is slammed for 'ignoring health officials to shut down schools' while bars and restaurants stay open

Image
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday that it was too soon to start closing New York City despite Mayor Bill de Blasio claiming another lockdown was coming 'soon' as a justification for shutting public schools.  De Blasio has been slammed for deciding on Wednesday that he was going to close all public schools despite the infection rate in New York City being just 3 percent and only 0.19 percent in schools.  Parents are furious that their kids can't go to class while bars, restaurants, nail salons and other non-essential businesses are still open. Many private schools are also still open.  De Blasio, in trying to justify his decision, on Thursday said it was because New York City had once been 'the epicenter'. He also promised that Cuomo - who is the only official with the power to shut down businesses - would do so soon.  But during a call with reporters, Cuomo said the infection rate was still too low. When asked why de Blasio had taken the decision and i

Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has put aside her bitter rivalry with New South Wales premier Gladys Berejiklian and supported her call for a change to the national anthem. The two premiers have been at odds with each other over the border closure during the Covid-19 pandemic and communication has deteriorated between the pair.  The border is currently open to New South Wales, though Greater Sydney residents remain locked out.  Meanwhile, Ms Berejiklian has been focussed on other matters and put out a call for a national discussion on the Advance Australia Fair anthem last week.  She claimed changing the phrase from 'young and free' to 'one and free' would be an acknowledgement of 'our proud Indigenous history'.   'There should be a national discussion on this involving all Australians including Indigenous Australians,' she said. 'I think it's about time we recognise the tens of thousands of years of the First Nations people of this cont

Nine in ten relatives of dementia sufferers fear they won’t be able to see them at Christmas. The research from Relish – a dementia wellbeing company – also found that half fear this festive period will be their loved one’s last. It highlights the importance of the Daily Mail’s Christmas campaign for care home residents to be reunited with their loved ones through routine visitor testing. Around 70 per cent of the country’s 410,000 care home residents have dementia. Experts have warned that visiting restrictions have led to a sharp decline in their physical and mental health since March. This contributed to more than 5,000 excess deaths among those with dementia during the first wave of the virus. The survey also revealed that more than a third of family members are concerned about their friend or relative being alone over the festive period, with 29 per cent saying that because of coronavirus it will be their first Christmas apart.
