StreetArt-CovidJackson Heights – May 1, 2020

Some weeks ago Governor Cuomo gesticulated about “kicking Covid ass.” Since then New York City has come to lead the world in the virus’s death toll — with Cuomo’s policies, before and during the pandemic, adding to the death rate and undermining society.

A more just and logical approach to the pandemic, would focus on the overall health of society, not just an obsessive effort to “turn the curve.” Cuomo claims to be guided by data — what about the unemployment data? He now claims to be able to “control the (Covid) beast” — actually it seems the beast is controlling him and his response to it.
