With all signs indicating the extreme panic was overblown and unwarranted, this buffoon wants to kill the greatest city of the modern age.
New Yorkers elected this buffoon and the New Yorkers are being punished.
The good thing is, this moron is not of charge of anything.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Friday that people ‘need to be ready’ for New York staying in lockdown until the end of May as he gave the grave prediction that at least half of the city would become infected by coronavirus.
Speaking on Good Morning America as the US topped the world’s COVID-19 hotspots with 86,000 infections, de Blasio was asked if the city would stay shuttered ‘through May’.
He answered: ‘I think we need to be ready for that,’ then went on to slam President Trump’s Easter deadline to reopen the country as something that gave ‘false hope’ to the nation.
De Blasio also warned that ‘more than half’ of New York City – which has a population of 8.6million – would become infected with the virus at any one time.

He said the majority, 80 percent, would suffer flu like symptoms but that some would die.
‘Here’s the reality in NYC, people we have to be real honest about where this is going.
‘Unfortunately we think it’s going to go through April and in to May. It’s just a blunt reality.
‘Over half of people in this city will ultimately be infected.
‘Thank god for 80 percent, that will be very little impact in truth – it’s like having cold or flu and you get through it in seven to 10 days.
‘But for 20 percent of the people infected, it’s going to be tough and for some of them, of course it’s going to be fatal,’ he said.

In New York City alone, 365 people have died and there are more than 23,000 cases.
De Blasio said the biggest challenge the city is facing is the lack of ventilators in the hospital system.
He has received 2,500 from the federal government but needs 15,000 to combat the onslaught of patients yet to come into hospitals.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has already said that the state needs 30,000.
President Trump undermined that number on Thursday night and suggested he was exaggerating it.
De Blasio said the president was ‘not looking at the facts’.
‘We need help now. When the president says the state of New York doesn’t need 30,000 ventilators, he’s not looking at the facts.
‘A ventilator means someone lives or dies. If they get the ventilator in time they can come through but if they don’t, they’re not going to make it,’ he said.
