That point was underlined when NY Governor Kathy Hochul told MSNBC’s Katy Tur this evening, “The increase is here. This is only going to get worse. We know it will get worse, especially after Christmas.
The governor went on to observe, “Two weeks after Thanksgiving we saw a 70% increase in cases. The same thing is going to happen [after Christmas]. ”
However, before that, he said, “We are seeing an increase in the number of our cases Omigron, ”Said the governor. “We went from 50 to 250 overnight. But we think those numbers are low because it will take time to deploy. According to The New York Times reports a 56% increase in cases involving all variants over the past two weeks.
State data This indicates that Omigron is significantly infiltrating and spreading rapidly against the dominant delta variant. For the week ended November 27, Omicron accounted for 0.2% of all cases filed in the region. Over the next week, it advanced to 2%. Omicron was responsible for 13.2% of variations identified last weekend. This is 65 times more in just three weeks.

Asked if the government would start ordering businesses to close Hochula, Dour said, “Everything always depends on how badly it ends, but … he’s not about closing, it’s about taking precautionary measures.”
The governor noted the mask policy he implemented last week as a way to increase security without closing businesses.
While my first goal is to protect the health of New Yorkers, I also want to protect New York’s economy. I do not want this economy to shut down again … I want the children to be in school. “
“It doesn’t have to be that way,” she continued. “It’s very preventable.”
One change, Hochul said, changes the definition of the word “fully vaccinated” to include a booster shot.
“We’ve working on it. It’s complicated.” But he said, “I hope it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen in New York.”
