Cuomo: “If you had said, when we started this, ‘Yes, we had more cases than anyone else. Yes, we had this European virus attacked us and nobody expected it.”

Should states open up the economy again?

CUOMO: “We were really at a very, very bad place. Again, through no fault of our own. Virus came from Europe. Whoever would have figured that? Somebody should have, but above my pay grade. We changed the trajectory dramatically by what we did. And that was smart. But we have to stay smart and we have to stay united. You look at what we have done. New York, the cases are now on a decline. You look at the rest of the nation outside of New York, the cases are still on the incline. We took the worst situation in the nation and changed the trajectory so now we are on a decline. The rest of the nation, the cases are still on the incline. That’s because of what the people in this state did. If you had said, when we started this, ‘Yes, we had more cases than anyone else. Yes, we had this European virus attacked us and nobody expected it. But we are not going to change our trajectory. We are going to change the trajectory more dramatically than any place else in the nation.’ And when you look at the nation compared to New York, you will see us on the decline and the rest of the nation on the incline. People would have said it’s impossible, but we did it. But we have to stay smart.”
