New York has no illusions. The city is preparing for the epidemic peak from Covid-19 and US Air Force soldiers preparing a morgue in a tent in front of horrified residents. The city, which accounts for half of the 70,000 American cases, has become the epicenter of the coronavirus in the United States. In an intensive care unit, an emergency doctor filmed her daily life. “It’s getting worse and worse”, she explains.
Epidemic peak expected in 14 days
In the street, the queues in the rain are punctuated by coughing, those of New Yorkers come to be tested. State Governor Andrew Cuomo called out: “The peak of the epidemic will be here in 14 days, we need fans by then.” If New York is a potential bomb, it is first of all by its density of 12 million inhabitants, even if rallies are prohibited.
