60% of the cases in the United States are in New York right now! The cases in the state went past 20,000 over this weekend!
“It’s insensitive, it’s arrogant, it’s self-destructive, it’s disrespectful to other people and it has to stop and it has to stop now,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a speech. “This is not a joke and I am not kidding.”
This is causing a strain on medical officials, who have also been trying their best to avoid contact, while still taking care of these patients. They have been overworked with overtime and not enough time to rest. In addition to this, the medical supplies are running in shortage, causing a severe humanitarian crisis in New York at the moment.
Unfortunately, if congress doesn’t act immediately to resolve the healthcare and the economical situation, we could see America heading toward an economic recession and more infected people.
Why is this happening in New York state?
Over the past 30 years, New York has evolved into being one of the most diverse states in the entire country. The 2010 U.S. census shows that in New York City, About 45% of the population isn’t white, meaning they are either black, Hispanic, Asian, or any other race.
With a growing based of diversity, you have so many different cultural backgrounds, different social behaviors, and even different practicing religions. According to data from a Pew Research Center, a record 40% of New York residents are either in non-Christians, or unaffiliated (atheist, agnostic, etc). When there’s so much diversity, it is very difficult to remain prayerful and believing in God. Many new residents have embraced their cultures while being in New York and have refused to seek God.
As a matter of fact, I believe that New York is one of the states that has departed the most from God. It has one of the largest LGBTQ populations in the world, for starters. Next, Governor Cuomo signed a bill that legalized abortion in the entire state. The governors and senators laughed as they signed the bill into action, signaling the absence of the fear of God.
Why is it happening in other nations? God only knows. Sometimes, we may not have all of the answers. As far as New York goes, much of New York needs to run back to God!
