In spite of the city’s efforts to get all New Yorkers vaccinated, more than 40% of New Yorkers are yet to be inoculated. NY1’s Zack Fink, Courtney Gross and Juan Manuel Benitez discuss the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases and weigh in on de Blasio’s decision to require all public health care workers to either get the shot or get tested every week.
They also explain why many Queens elected officials are opposing a project to build an AirTrain to LaGuardia Airport. The $2.1 billion plan --championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo-- was recently approved by the federal government.
We want to hear from you, especially what you think about the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in the city.
