New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday vowed to ramp up coronavirus testing in minority communities and investigate the racial disparities in deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
“Why are more African Americans and Latinos affected?” Cuomo asked at his daily press briefing Wednesday.
The article goes on to state the following:
He noted that black New Yorkers comprise 28 percent of deaths in New York City and 18 percent of deaths in New York state, despite being 22 percent and 9 percent of the population, respectively.
The report also states that Hispanics make up 29 percent of the population in New York City, but represent 34 percent of deaths due to coronavirus.
“You know, it always seems that the poorest people pay the highest price. Why is that?” Cuomo asked.
The governor then compared the statistics to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and said, “The people standing on those rooftops were not rich white people. Let’s figure it out.”

In an exclusive news broadcast to TeamDML.com subscribers on Tuesday, retired INS agent, immigration expert and TeamDML contributor Michael Cutler addressed this very topic.
“Why do you think New York City is ground zero for the coronavirus pandemic?” Cutler asked, as he noted the “sanctuary city” policies of New York Democrats, and the common practice of large numbers of illegal aliens all living in the same household.
