As New Yorkers watch other states deal with massive increases in coronavirus caseload – residents are bracing for another round here in the Empire State.
According to a newly released Siena College poll 62 percent of New Yorkers surveyed expect the worst of the pandemic is yet to come. While 27 percent think the worst is past.
By a margin of 70 percent to 20 percent, New York residents believe the government’s top job during the pandemic is containing its spread, even if it hurts the economy.
As for a second wave, 82 percent of respondents believe that it’s coming sometime in the fall.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state officials have urged New Yorkers to socially distance and wear masks when they cannot. Cuomo hinted over the weekend that the state could see a second wave sooner-than-later.
