Coronavirus in NY: De Blasio urges sick New Yorkers to stay off the subways

The city could see “over a hundred” cases of the coronavirus in coming weeks, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday — as he urged people who are sick to stay off the subways.

“I think we could well see at least a hundred cases or over a hundred cases,” Hizzoner told reporters at a city emergency-management office in downtown Brooklyn.

“If you are sick, you shouldn’t be going to a public event. You shouldn’t be going to work. You shouldn’t be going on the subway.”

The mayor offered buses as an option for those who don’t want to go on the subway.

“Buses can be very crowded, but if the bus is a less-crowded option and you can use that, please do,” de Blasio said.

He added that there are now 13 confirmed cases of the virus in the city, which he said was one more than Saturday.
