Governor Andrew Kumo traveled to Buffalo on Monday to update New York residents in response to the region’s COVID-19 response.
Buffalo, New York – New York Governor Andrew Kumo traveled to Buffalo on Monday to respond to state COVID-19 protests.
It was good news for Eri County. If the county’s positive and hospitalized rates continue to decline, the governor’s elective surgery could be resumed immediately.
“We predicted an increase in social activity would lead to a significant increase in COVID cases, and the peak will eventually be spread, and the further fulfillment of this forecast is good news. He said that if these numbers are reduced, they could boost economic activity..
“This decline has spread to Eri County, and now we feel comfortable resuming selected surgeries and making further adjustments in the next two days. This is good news, but don’t be fooled by COVID – this beast has been around for a long time to keep New York residents awake. It requires them to bathe, put on a mask, and have a social distance to reach the end of the tunnel.
Currently, 409 people, or 0.03 percent of the population, are infected in Eri County hospitals. Positively, it dropped from 7.9 percent in early January to 5.85 percent now. The steady decline is now close to three weeks.
He said the three priorities were controlling the spread of the virus, vaccinating New York residents and rebuilding the region’s economy. From an economic point of view, Kumo said, advertisements are expected in the cluster zones in the coming days.
“We believe we are at the end of the holiday season,” said Kumo.
Since last Monday, 72 percent of hospital staff across the country have been vaccinated, the governor said.
Kumo also said he expects the demand for vaccines to increase despite the limited supply and expects fraud and abuse to occur. The state is developing a new hotline to help police: 833-VAX-SCAM.
Following Monday’s announcement, ECMC issued the following statement.
“Improving the situation in the region today, Governor Kumo announced that elections in West New York could resume. On behalf of our patients, we thank the Governor for this decision and we will continue to take all precautions. Patients are being urged to reschedule as soon as possible. We know that adherence to the recommended measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus contributes to improved conditions in Western New York and we urge everyone to continue wearing masks, maintain social distance and perform regular hand hygiene.
Calendar Health had this to say again about the selected surgeries:
“We would like to thank the caretaker Prime Minister and the patients we serve today for the resumption of selected surgeries in Kerry County,” said Robert J. Nesselbush, the new chief executive of Calend Health. This will undoubtedly have a positive impact on patient care and outcomes, excluding our operations and overall financial situation.
The epidemic has had a devastating effect on the health care system here in Buffalo, Western New York, and throughout New York State. COVID-19 has put a strain on thousands of patients who need to stay healthy while coping with this problem. We are very happy for these patients, who now have access to world-class health care that is recognized by our staff and doctors. The commitment and hard work of our frontline staff has not gone unnoticed over the past year.
