A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that the cases of the coronavirus in New York City at the start of the pandemic came from Europe, prompting a fresh round of outrage from Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "Because of the government's failure, the virus got into New York and Americans died," he said in a call to reporters on Thursday afternoon. These are the facts. They missed the science. The report "Genetic Testing and Characterization Based on SARS Infection and Community CoV-2 -- March 2020, New York" stated that the U.S. Department of Health and the New York City Department of Mental Health conducted specific surveillance for influenza symptoms similar to (them). And genetic sequencing to characterize community transmission and determine the geographic origin of SARS infection. Of the 544 samples that tested negative for influenza, 36 (6.6%) tested positive. These sequences were circulated in Europe. The CDC also noted that despite testing tests at national airports on February 2 and a travel ban on foreigners from China, "it is not until March 13 that Europe begins to adopt travel restrictions similar to Europe's Schengen area," in New York. "While travel restrictions were an important mitigation strategy, New York State was already experiencing import and community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 at the time of the European restrictions. Mr. Kumar reiterated that Europe's travel ban was too late. Their own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the travel ban is too late. He said thousands of European flights landed at JFK and Newark airports in early March. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also supports the findings of the Mount Sinai study published in April. The study found that the genome associated with Covid-19 patients in New York City was similar to the virus in Europe. Frustrated, Cuomo warned: "There will be a second wave, but it won't be a mutated virus..." This will be a response to Covid, which has infected other states and is coming back to New York. The governor said it would be "a federal double-barbed gun of incompetence" and urged: "Mr. President, pay attention to the science, open your eyes, and listen to federal health officials."
