Lowest numbers since March 19. The Health Dept. says peak has been reached, getting ready for phase 2. Whatever that may mean.

They'll begin (maybe) to understand when army trucks will start carrying caskets outside of the state because local cemeteries won't be able to cope with all the cremations and burials.

Thank God it appears that New York may have reached its peak.

Now the problem is how long it will take to get near 0 new infections. That depends on the number of tests being made and how well containment measures are respected by citizens. Also, not having a public NHS like in Europe might make a difference.

There is also the issue of whether there are new strains of the virus that people may not be immune to.

With strict containment that shouldn't make a difference with infections, only in the search of a vaccine. The problem is that containment can't be kept strict for a long time. The economy cannot be bound for long and people too. But if you adhere to rules like wearing mask and gloves and keep social distancing, once that the numbers are low, you can start (slowly) again until a vaccine is discovered. Still I don't know if, in the USA where there's no NHS, those measures can be as effective as in Europe. What about people who can't afford test and care?

Lowest percentage of new cases since the start of the pandemic: 6,2% on a record number of 60.000 tests performed. Still a high number of deaths. The problem (or not) is that they are mostly concentrated in the North-West, especially in the Milan area; and up there it doesn't seem to be a slack-down of the number of  new infections (and on the people going round). I presume that by the beginning of new month, at least in the rest of the country, the lockdown might end, though the safety measures  will be kept until a vaccine will be found. Which means that an effective lockdown must last for at least a couple of months. Let's see.

This was a concern, that poor people would not get tested or proper care because they couldn?t afford it, then they would spread the virus to other people.

So, testing and care are generally free now; and  Insurance companies are not charging anything out of pocket  https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2020/03/19/health/coronavirus-tests-bills.amp.html

It seems that you read the subheading but did not read the actual article. People may face bills If they go out of their healthcare network (meaning, a doctor who does not take their insurance) or undergo unrelated tests. But typically, you go to your doctor or a hospital that takes your insurance - and whatever insurance you have, there are plenty of places that take it - and all coronavirus testing is free.

I'm not a NYT subscriber.

But if there are all those caveat for people with an insurance, what about people with none?

From the article:

What if I don?t have insurance?
You should be able to get covered. If you lose your job, you may qualify for Medicaid or be able to sign up for a health plan under the Affordable Care Act.

A growing number of states are also creating a special enrollment period for residents who want to sign up, and there is even some talk of the federal government making a similar decision for the marketplaces they operate. There?s also talk of using the Medicaid program much more broadly to cover the uninsured.
