New York City will shut down Monday in a drastic effort to combat the rapid coronavirus infestation quickly killing off many city residents, Your Content is first to report.

The stunning leak surfaced after millions of New Yorkers took to social media triggering a global trend dubbed #shutdownNYC — begging New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo to shut down the entire city of Manhattan immediately to prevent the current deadly coronavirus infestation.

‘I wasn’t going to say anything, but I see it’s trending: A cop friend expects the city will shutdown on Monday,’ said an individual on social media. The claim was independently verified by two separate sources — one employed by the U.S. Department of Defense and the second a New York City Dept. of Health employee. Both spoke under the condition of anonymity.

‘The message sent via twitter is a verified fact — New York will shut down Monday. The State made the call just before lunch Saturday. It’s going to happen — and it’s well overdue.’ the Dept. of Defense insider told Your Content.

The stunning trend surfaced on twitter overnight Sunday after residents fear they’ll perish from the rapidly growing coronavirus outbreak, which took the state by storm early this week.

What’s more, Gov. Cuomo released a statement overnight, reading:

‘It has come to our attention that two of our Assembly colleagues – Helene Weinstein and Charles Barron – have been diagnosed with COVID-19. It is important to note that both members have not been in Albany since early March for separate reasons. Speaker Heastie has been in contact with both members and we are taking swift action to address this situation.’

‘We have spoken with the Senate and are undertaking an intensive cleaning of the Capital and the Legislative Office Building. All legislators and staff that have come in contact with these members will be tested to ensure the safety of everyone.’

‘We are working hand in glove to contain and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 in New York but we will continue to act aggressively to protect the public health.’

‘This shouldn’t even need to be said, but this is not a case of kids just not wanting to go to school. Young people could have the virus, not know it, and give it to their teachers.’ Rick Tavy, a New York City teacher declared. ‘You are putting at risk the lives of the arbiters of the education system.’

What’s more, experts from the doomed city say 100k New Yorkers will die from the coronavirus if the city remains open.

‘Tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of New Yorkers will die this year. This could all start at the beginning of April, if we don’t act within the next 5-10 days,’ said economist and data scientist Michael Donnelly.

‘The fact that citizens of New York are begging Mayor deBlasio to #shutdownNYC is something I never thought I’d see,’ said Sara Magner. ‘But at the same time it’s so SO unbelievably necessary.’

‘Come on dude — don’t be the #MayorFromJaws — New Yorkers deserve better!’

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

The CDC affirms that there are ongoing investigations to learn more. This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available.

How will the coronavirus impact my community?

More cases of the coronavirus are likely to be identified in the coming days, according to the CDC. That includes a rapid increase in cases in the United States. It’s also likely that person-to-person spread will continue to occur, including in communities in the United States. It’s likely that at some point, widespread transmission of the coronavirus in the United States will occur.

Widespread transmission of the coronavirus would translate into large numbers of people needing medical care at the same time. Schools, childcare centers, workplaces, and other places for mass gatherings may experience more absenteeism. Public health and healthcare systems may become overloaded, with elevated rates of hospitalizations and deaths. Other critical infrastructure, such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, and transportation industry may also be affected. Health care providers and hospitals may be overwhelmed. At this time, there is no vaccine to protect against the coronavirus and no medications approved to treat it. Nonpharmaceutical interventions would be the most important response strategy.
