Early March De Blasio Encouraged NYers “go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus”

Early March, Bill de Blasio tweeted:

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” @FilmLinc. If “The Wire” was a true story + set in Italy, it would be this film.

One Twitter user responded earlier this week:

I wonder how many cases of the expert virologists from @seattleflustudy can trace back to this excellent advice from New York City Mayor using virus genome sequencing.

New York currently has roughly the same number of coronavirus cases as the rest of the United States combined.

Tuesday de Blasio tweeted:

We expect the fight against COVID-19 to be a long one.

I wish that wasn’t the case for New York City, but right now we are looking at months.

We expect April to be tougher than March, and May to be tougher still.

We’re making important decisions about our City jails. No one over 70 or with pre-existing conditions should be in our jail system right now and we are working to make that a reality.

There are approximately 300 people with misdemeanors and non-violent felonies that I’m going to move to release immediately. For those that fall outside my jurisdiction, I am alerting the State and District Attorneys to my concerns.
