Over 4 million New Yorkers or 50 percent of the citys population will get the coronavirus, Mayor de Blasio warned Wednesday.
Its a fair bet to say that half of all New Yorkers and maybe more than half will end up contracting this disease, de Blasio said at a City Hall press briefing about the outbreak as the Big Apples positive cases approached 18,000 with nearly 200 deaths.

That seems irresponsible on an unprecedented scale. I bet he’s real popular with the little people right about now...
This guy needs to shut the hell up.
Chances are that has already happened.
Half of NY will.
I have spoken.
Bring on the antibody tests
I would guess that at least half the people in Eastern King County WA where live have already had it in the last three months and gotten over it. It mostly only causes problems when it hits a vulnerable population.
One thing that is interesting, is if you look at the official state by numbers... the sates that have legalized marijuana have approximately four times as many deaths per state as the states that have not. Why? I don’t know... but look at the numbers. Does smoking pot weaken people’s cardiovascular system? Gee, I wonder.
That’ll bring morale up in no time.
The Kaiser is on a roll.
The people deserve the Mayor
That must be the half that doesn’t have summer homes in the Hamptons, Adirondacks, Martha’s Vineyard, etc.
Possibly true. If true, and if the current statistics have any validity, that would mean that ~4-4.5 million people would be infected, and possibly 10-15% would get hospitalized (400,000 to 675,000). Total beds available in the city, including converted hotel beds, is currently ~23,000. There are only ~63 acute care hospitals in NYC. I hope none of this comes to be.
If they are all Democrats, I say, “Go for it”. Set a Guinness Book of World Records record.
fear mongering on his part. watch the exodus get worse from NYC.
Wonder if this figure was a predicted total of the 3 wave cy le Dr
Birx spoke of in today’s presser.
Cape May, etc. as well.
#11. Re The Kaiser is on a roll (love it). Bet he puts Russian Dressing on it.
Damned! We have DeCommieo and “Russian Collusion”. Wake up Sleepy Mueller and his organized criminal gang. someone finally found what they were looking for.
