Cuomo, Newsom ‘fails to manage coronavirus crisis’ and prepares for second wave: Gasparino

Governors in the blue state must have made an effort to “manage” U.S. citizens through the coronavirus pandemic, as opposed to the strike, Charles Gasparino, senior correspondent for Fox Business Network, said Tuesday.

“Listen, you get the government you pay for. Anyone can lock up a state. Any idiot can say ‘no more business, everyone stays home,’ Gasparino told America’s Newsroom.

Gasparino said U.S. citizens need to “pay” public officials such as the California government, Gavin Newsom, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, and the New York government, Andrew Cuomo, to “manage” the crisis. determining ‘most vulnerable populations’, ‘how many businesses can stay open,’ and limiting their operations to keep the economy going amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s management 101,” Gasparino said.

However, this is not done in New York or California, Gasparino said before noticing that people have fled the states because they are not “prepared to protect the most vulnerable from a surge in cases during the winter months”.

“All it really did was close down the businesses and destroy livelihoods,” Gasparino said.


Gasparino has responded to the increase in COVID-19 cases in California despite unprecedented closures and restrictions aimed at limiting the spread of the coronavirus.

Earlier this week, the state exceeded 2 million confirmed cases and beds at very intensive care units are becoming dangerously scarce. In the province of Los Angeles, the center of the virus in California, the Department of Public Health said Thursday that approximately 14,000 residents tested positive for COVID-19 each day and that hospitals admitted 1,000 new coronavirus patients daily.

As of Thursday, the state has reported nearly 24,000 deaths and more than 39,000 new cases; 312 deaths have been reported in the 24-hour period since Wednesday.

One health expert calls the boom a ‘viral tsunami’, reports the Daily Mail. State leaders have reached out to Australia and Taiwan to fill 3,000 temporary positions in health care as hospitals remain overwhelmed.

Earlier this month, Newsom, a Democrat, warned that strict lock-in measures would be introduced regionally when the ICU bed capacity falls below the 15% mark. Days later, Los Angeles County was placed under the new lock-in orders.

Gasparino said the strike was “not managed”. Furthermore, Gasparino compares how Florida is managed with New York and California, in which the economy of the Sunshine States is open while hospitals are not overrun by infected patients.

“Government [Ron] DeSantis Board, Gov. “Newsom just shuts things down,” Gasparino said.


Gasparino added: “These are not good governors. I mean, listen, Gavin Newsom can look and sound good. You know, Governor Cuomo sounds good. You know, he was very good during the initial stages of the pandemic. But, in management, by driving us through this crisis, keeping as many cases open as possible and preserving livelihoods while we deal with them, they all come between a D and an F. ‘
