New Yorkers are dealing with a “wild fire” at their neighborhood coney island in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and some are considering moving to the mainland.
New Yorkers are being asked to stay at home because of the threat from the deadly virus.
“I can only imagine what the streets will be like when we’re not able to go out to enjoy the weather,” said Elizabeth DeLeon, a resident of the upscale Manhattan Beach neighborhood of Westwood, NJ.
“I can see it from my window.”
Coney Island is located in Brooklyn, but residents have been asked to take shelter at nearby nearby shelters.
“We are concerned about the fire in our neighborhood,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday.
“We are also concerned about people in our community not having access to medical care.
We are concerned because there are so many people who have respiratory problems.”
There is no other way to describe it, except to say we are dealing now with a massive outbreak of coronaviruses.
“In New York City, there is an epidemic,” the mayor said.
“So we have a problem.”
DeLeon told the New York Post she plans to make arrangements to go to her daughter’s school, where she has lived for over two decades.
“It’s just been overwhelming.
I’ve never felt like this before,” she said.”
My kids are very nervous, they’re scared.
I think I’m going to have to stay put for a little bit longer.”
New Yorkers who want to stay in New York should go to shelters immediately, de Blasio said.
New Yorkers who have had respiratory symptoms are advised to go home.
New York State’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said it was monitoring the situation and was asking residents who have health issues to stay home.
“Our health professionals are taking every precaution to assess the situation,” the department said in a statement.
“This is a health emergency, and we will not tolerate any further spread of the virus,” the statement said.
In addition to Westwood and nearby communities, several New Jersey hospitals are also facing a spike in infections.
In one hospital in Hoboken, a woman died of the disease on Wednesday, and the state health department has confirmed six deaths linked to the coronajax.
The outbreak has led to a shortage of health care workers and has been affecting the entire state.
