NY’s Cuomo says Trump agrees to help expand coronavirus testing

first_img“It’s in some ways an outrageous goal, but this is New York, and we’re used to outrageous,” he said, adding that the state’s current level of 20,000 tests a day marked the highest per-capita rate for diagnostic coronavirus screening in the world.As of Tuesday, New York state had tallied more than 257,000 cases of COVID-19, the highly contagious respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus. That accounts for more than a quarter of the 809,000-plus known infections nationwide.Budget shortfall Health experts say a massive expansion in both kinds of tests is essential before stay-at-home orders and mandatory business shutdowns, which were ordered to slow the spread of the virus, can be safely lifted.Cuomo, who said he also stressed the severity of the state’s budget problems brought on by the pandemic, described his conversation with Trump as “honest and open.”At a separate White House briefing, Trump called his meeting with Cuomo productive and said he was proud of the relationship his administration has forged with New York.With social distancing and lockdowns showing results, Cuomo has said he could begin to consider how to reopen a state that ranges from New York City, with more than 8 million people, to farm country and sparsely populated towns.Trump said the federal government will work with New York to help secure additional capacity for testing, the importance of which the president has at times minimized.Cuomo also told Trump New York City no longer needed the US Naval Ship Comfort hospital ship to help with overflow patients.Along with other governors, Cuomo has called on the federal government to provide direct cash assistance to the states, a request that has gone unanswered in the stimulus packages passed by Congress.New York, facing a $10 billion to $15 billion budget shortfall, needs a cash infusion to pay teachers, police officers, healthcare workers, Cuomo said.The governor said Trump indicated he understood and promised to “work hard” to obtain funding for states in the next round of legislation.  Topics : The state will be responsible for expanding the capacity of some 300 laboratories conducting the tests and hiring the necessary staff.”That is an intelligent division of labor – let each layer of government do what it does best,” Cuomo told a news briefing after his rare face-to-face encounter with Trump, a man with whom the governor has had a testy relationship at best in the media.He said the testing would mix diagnostic screenings used to determine if someone is carrying the virus, and serology tests in which blood samples are analyzed for the presence of antibodies, an indication of exposure even after an individual is no longer infected.Cuomo said it will “take several weeks at best” to implement the plan.center_img President Donald Trump and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, two prominent figures in the US coronavirus crisis who are often at odds, emerged from a White House meeting on Tuesday with mostly positive things to say and an apparent deal on testing.Cuomo, a Democrat whose state is the epicenter of the US coronavirus epidemic with nearly 20,000 deaths, said the Republican president agreed on a plan for doubling New York’s coronavirus screening capacity to 40,000 tests per day.Under that plan, Cuomo said, the federal government will procure and furnish the test kits and related materials, including the chemical reagents that have sometimes been in short supply.last_img read more

Putnam down the stretch for what would be his first win of the season de­spite restarting at the back of the field following the lap eight fracas.The frontrunners had come up on a slower car and while Andy Freeman got by, Mark Wauge and Fettinger both got caught up. Wauge suffered enough damage to end his race while Fettinger made a pit stop and was able to rejoin the back of the pack for the restart.Fettinger quickly found the fastest line and charged to the lead, and eventual win ahead of Put­nam and Albert Gill.Braxton Possinger was flawless in leading start to finish of the 20-lap feature for Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.last_img read more

Ability to add photos does not change app’s offensive nature

first_imgLate last month, social media platform Yik Yak announced its intent to start including pictures along with posts. Yik Yak, an anonymous bulletin board, has invited controversy since its inception due to many reports of cyberbullying and offensive language. Though the public should allow time for the company to shed its negative image and adopt an inclusive identity, this new feature fails to move Yik Yak forward and ultimately creates a more derisive environment.Unlike its counterpart, Whisper, which allows users to post completely anonymously from anywhere in the world, Yik Yak provides a more personal atmosphere due to posts that can only be viewed within a 1.5-mile radius. Because of this, the app is popular in communities, especially college campuses, with users validating each post with an up or down vote. According to CEO Tyler Droll, it is the college students who often engage in discussion and debate over campus topics that have requested the addition of photos along with their “yaks.”The reality is, prior to the addition of images on Yik Yak, reports of dangerous users had already put the company under scrutiny. In October 2014, police officers arrested a user for threatening to “kill everyone in Penn State Main.” University of Michigan discovered in April that a Yik Yak user in its community posted an apparent suicide note. Not to mention, at Utica College, an army of people spewed directed slurs at the campus’ transgender population. These are some of the many incidents which have propelled the public to believe that the mere existence of Yik Yak is highly detrimental to the student population.The addition of pictures on Yik Yak fights fire with fire. Granted, posting each photo comes with many Yik Yak-imposed safeguards. For instance, any picture containing a face or signs of nudity will be immediately revoked. These restrictions are seemingly put in place to ensure the safety of Yik Yak users; however, they also silently confirm the existence and inevitability of malicious content. Obviously, setting the availability of each board to such a narrow proximity increases the likelihood of targeted posts. And now, internet bullies are equipped with two different kinds of weapons: text and images.Perhaps the biggest contributor to Yik Yak’s nastiness is in the very fabric of the app’s construction. Anonymity will always give endless power to cruelly mock and make threats. As psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow put it, “Psychologically, Yik Yak actually removes all pretense of being a person with empathy, genuinely connected to other human beings.” No amount of innovation, especially not the addition of photos, will steer Yik Yak toward a path of humanity.Even at its very best, Yik Yak is still irresponsible. Users commenting on their mundane lives are part of a faceless mob, ready to attack by force of voting or posting.To educate this crowd, Yik Yak’s endeavors should include teaching its users the effects of each publication, no matter how mundane. In contrast, the photo feature does nothing to strengthen Yik Yak’s moral compass. Once an image is posted to cyberspace, the poster has no idea about how his or her picture has traveled.That being said, Yik Yak aims to foster patches of communities, and its growth thus far on college campuses seems to be an indomitable force — the app is found on more than 1,500 campuses. Communities, however, are made up of people who deserve the respect of one another. Yik Yak’s injustices cannot simply be eradicated by the new picture feature, and by not teaching users the responsibility of mindful language, Yik Yak fails to progress.
