Stupidity rises to the top

So last years "virus" had none of these superpowers??
Man this guy is dumb

Oh yes and bill gates is apparently the teacher and entire countries are his 2nd grade students
He is not giving an A to very many countries

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the novel coronavirus' ability to live up to three days on plastic and steel surfaces is a concern for the city's public transport buses and trains.
The lifespan of the virus poses a health threat to the city's public transportation workers and passengers alike as essential employees rely on the buses and trains despite the "pause" order.
According to researchers live coronavirus particles can survive anywhere from three hours to seven days on surfaces, depending on the material.
The MTA has been hit hard in the last two months as the agency reportedly lost 84 employees to the virus and passenger counts dropped 93% since the beginning of the outbreak.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo emphasized the lifespan of the novel coronavirus in the air and on surfaces while describing the challenges facing the city's massive public transport system during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

"The virus can live up to 72 hours on plastic surfaces and stainless-steel surfaces," Cuomo said in a press conference Friday. "Just think about this from a transit point of view or from your car point of view. It can live on a pole in a bus or on a seat in a bus for up to 72 hours."

Cuomo's statements about the virus' lifespan, sources for which the governor hadn't referenced, echoed reports that live coronavirus particles, which typically spread via droplets from an infected person's coughs or sneezes, can survive for anywhere from three hours to seven days on surfaces, depending on the material — and are particularly significant for commonly touched surfaces on like those on the city's highly trafficked trains and buses, infecting passengers and workers alike.

In addition to surfaces, Cuomo said the virus spreading through the air also remains a concern.

"When they were talking about droplets, I thought it was a droplet and then it falls, right? It's a droplet that can hang in the air for three hours," Cuomo said. "I don't even know how that works."

Cuomo said information on the lifespan of the coronavirus was key for informing disinfectant measures for agencies like the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and important for New Yorkers to remember ahead of the city and state's eventual reopening.

After the first reported case of the novel coronavirus in New York City, the MTA announced it would enlist employees to wipe down and sanitize stations, trains, and buses every 72 hours.

The virus has hit the MTA hard in the epicenter of the US outbreak. The agency reported that as of April 24, it had lost 84 employees to the virus as 3,352 employees have tested positive since the outbreak began, the New York Post reported.

The MTA's ridership has also taken a hit as its passenger counts dropped 93% since the beginning of the outbreak as the city entered a "New York on Pause" order.

Cuomo also highlighted promising statistics like the number of coronavirus patients in hospitals in the state was down almost 25% since last week, though the state has at least 271,590 confirmed cases and 16,162 deaths.

CDC lunatics stepping up their game to new heights

After two feline friends in New York became the first U.S. household pets to test positive for the coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says pet owners should take the precaution of simply treating pets like "other human family members."

Though there have only been a handful of known cases of animals becoming infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, the advisory issued last week suggests people apply the same social distancing measures to their pets as they do to family with whom they're living.

That means keeping cats indoors and walking dogs on a leash at least six feet away from other animals and other people. And best to avoid dog parks.

Inside the home, it's fine to interact with pets as you normally would, ideally with frequent hand washing and good pet hygiene. But if someone in the household gets sick, the CDC says pets should be kept a safe distance from that person -- just like the human members of the family.

“Social distancing applies to your pets too,” said Veterinary Specialist Dr. Melissa Salgado. “They are at risk of developing this disease so it’s best to err on the side of caution.”

Salgado, who diagnosed one of the infected cats, added that testing for animals is more invasive than it is for humans and for now, routine testing is not recommended by the CDC.

“Testing requires swabs of the nose, of the mouth, and the conjunctiva of the eyes, as well as fecal testing,” Salgado said. “And there’s so many illnesses in pets that aren’t coronavirus that we aren’t advocating for widespread testing.”

According to the CDC, the two felines who tested positive for the coronavirus experienced mild respiratory symptoms and are expected to make a full recovery
