NY Gov. Cuomo Bizarrely Calls COVID-19 a ‘European Virus’
New York’s increasingly overexposed Governor Andrew Cuomo today confused and angered China-hawks by referring to COVID-19 as a “European virus”.
Speaking at his daily press conference, Gov. Cuomo bizarrely declared: “Yes we have more cases than anyone else. Yes we had this European virus attack us and nobody expected it. But we’re not only going to change our trajectory, we’re going to change the trajectory more dramatically than any place else in the nation.”
It’s true. Cuomo did help to change the trajectory of the virus more dramatically than anywhere else in the United States: upward.
Cuomo’s work in forcing nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients no doubt led to needless deaths.
Regardless, his stance in calling it the “European virus” will confound even the most neutral of observers.
The coronavirus – otherwise known as the ‘China virus’, or ‘CCP virus’ – emerged from Wuhan, in the Hubei province of China.
It did not emerge in Europe.
