Meet Dr. Howard A. Zucker, M.D, the Commissioner of Health for New York State. Like most politicians in New York, Zucker is a rabid leftist and no fan of President Trump. So much so, he decided to tell New Yorkers to ignore the coronavirus precautions.
A New York’s health commissioner contradicted coronavirus guidance from the White House on Wendesday, telling people who have been to New York City recently that they should not, in fact, quarantine.
Coronavirus task force member Dr. Deborah Birx on Tuesday urged anyone who had been to New York City recently to self-quarantine, as there was a significant chance they contracted the virus. NY commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker, however, said that part of the White House’s guidance wasn’t necessary.
“I would not follow that. I believe you should follow the guidance in general, you should social distance,” he said, according to Wall St. Journal reporter Jimmy Vielkind.
Yeah, that’ll work in a state which has seen over 200 deaths and 25,000 cases. Feel free to head to the supermarket every day, take long walks in the park, and ride the subway to your heart’s content and see if I give a damn. You know who I’m concerned about? My 74-year old mother, my mother-in-law, my family members and my friends (including Jenn and the rest of you guys). If citizens of the Empire State want to listen to bad advice (simply to “own” Trump) who am I to stop them?
On Tuesday, Ace wrote this about New York: “I think the rest of the country is ready to build a fucking wall around NYC and leave it to its own fate. New Yorkers, understand this: The good feeling the country had about you post-9/11 is gone. A lot of us would rather the entire city be left to rot than be forced to send more money to this ungrateful, demanding, snidely superior shithole.”
He’s not wrong.
