Best explanation for NYC as an epicenter or 'hot spot' of the worldwide Coronavirus problem is that NYC is super-crowded.

It is. As a result of Democratic liberal-left housing policies for decades:

1. Only city to continue rent control/rent stabilization ever since WWII, forcing hundreds of thousands of landlords to abandon apartments because of forced losses.

2. Sky-high taxes at every level and every kind: state income, city income, state sales, city sales, real estate, excise, and on and on: huge impact on the construction industry.

3. Draconian zoning regulations of every kind to halt building, limit building, make construction super expensive,

4. mind-boggling bureaucracy for building requirements and regulations necessitating "contacts" at every level and payoffs.

5. union and safety regulations far beyond the average for cities, increasing costs.

6. extensive low-quality, crowded public housing.

Yes...yes...it is true, NYC is the world epicenter of the virus because it is the world epicenter of liberal-left economic intervention that is 'world-class" in its destructive potential. New York State and City are FAMOUS for 'world class' government intervention in every way that could increase the cost and decrease the pace of building ordinary housing for ordinary people.

Result: a city among the most crowded in anywhere in housing. And, of course, that makes 'social distancing" EVEN AT HOME far less effective.

Gov. Cuomo and resoundingly Mayor De Blasio have supported every possible policy described above. They and their leftist Democratic predecessors bear the chief responsibility for the city's vulnerability to this tragedy.

    Perhaps Cuomo should have bought 40,000 ventilators instead of 40,000 COVID test kits. NY has a lot of confirmed cases because they have tested more people - likely to justify getting more than other states from the federal trough.
    NY has been using government force to steal from the rest of America for 160 years. This is typical socialist looting and nothing new. Looting scum.

    Cuomo is hoping to be the Dem Party candidate for VP with Biden, or for POTUS if Biden's past catches up to him. The New Yellow Times is praising his actions in NY, which are basically to criticize the Trump administration and call for central socialist government action. Mustn't have any competing methods at the state level for dealing with the virus. That might prove just how bad Cuomo's action has been.

    Liberals at work. What do you expect?

    Oh boo hoo. Is California going to get more money from the bail-out than NY? Cry baby.

      NY has been testing everybody to amass the most confirmed cases as an excuse to criticise Trump until he gives them the most of the bailout funds. NY has been living off the producing states with government help for 160 years. KA is just learning.
      If the feds send the ventilators Kuomo wants, the rest of the country will have none. Same old story for NY's looting class. Just like the bank bailout.
