De Blasio: “We want to encourage” NYers going out. "If you’re under 50 & you’re healthy, which is most NYers, there’s very little threat here. This disease, even if you were to get it, basically acts like a common cold or flu. And transmission is not that easy."
So, what does this stellar leader of New York City suggest on March 2nd? He suggests to go to the movies, again, in spite of COVID-19:
“Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus, I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see ‘The Traitor’. If ‘The Wire’ was a true story + set in Italy, it would be this film.”
Even on March 11th, de Blasio was still saying to just keep things going on as normal:
“If you’re not sick, you should be going about your life.”
Biden and Sanders were holding rallies in March and Biden was getting in the faces of his supporters wanting to fight them. Dems and Biden called Trump a xenophobe and said to ignore him and his warnings about Covid.
