New York City might be seeing a relief in it’s battle against the Coronavirus pandemic as it recorded no deaths in a single day for the first time since March.

According to preliminary data from the New York City’s health department, zero deaths were confirmed within a 24-hour period between Tuesday and Wednesday.

The latest figures offer a welcome glimmer of hope following weeks and months that have seen thousands of deaths in America’s commercial capital.

New York City’s death toll currently stands at 21,752 and even though the death toll did increase by 59 on Wednesday, those deaths had taken place on previous dates rather than in the 24-hour period from Tuesday to Wednesday.

The last time New York saw an increase of zero daily deaths was on March 12 – one day after the first death was confirmed in the city.

Health officials in New York cautioned that it’s still possible that the number could be upgraded due to lag times in reporting, because the three probable Coronavirus deaths during that period are still under investigation.

‘This is great news,’ Mayor Bill de Blasio’s press secretary Freddi Goldstein told the New York Daily News on Thursday night.

‘In the face of extraordinary challenges, New Yorkers have gone above and beyond to keep each other safe throughout the crisis,’ De Blasio’s spokeswoman Avery Cohen said.

‘With hope on the horizon, we will continue to do everything we can to reopen safely without losing sight of the progress we’ve made.’

Joe Biden Says He Will Not Do A Drug Test Before Presidential Debate Against Trump; Trump Responds

Published

on

US presidential candidate, Joe Biden has laughed off Donald Trump’s demand that he take a drug test before the first presidential debate in Ohio on Tuesday September 29.

Trump suggested during the weekend that Biden should engage in a drug test beause he feels Biden will need drugs to perform well during the debate, but Biden laughed off Trump’s suggestions.

When asked at a news conference on Sunday, Biden said: “He’s almost – no. I have no comment.”

But the Biden campaign on Monday blasted Trump, saying the president apparently believed the best case for his re-election could be “made in urine”.

“Vice-President Biden intends to deliver his debate answers in words,” a Biden spokesperson told Politico. “If the president thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it.”

“We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200,000 Americans when he didn’t make a plan to stop Covid-19.”

Trump has now responded to Biden’s refusal to do drug test before the debate.

Taking to Twitter on Monday, September 28, Trump wrote;
‘Joe Biden just announced that he will not agree to a Drug Test. Gee, I wonder why?’

US President, Donald Trump, wanted his daughter, Ivanka Trump, as his vice-presidential running mate during the 2016 election, a report by The Washington Post published on Monday, September 28, alleges.

According to the Washington Post, in an upcoming book by former Trump deputy campaign chair Rick Gates, “Wicked Game,” that will be published October 13, during discussions about selecting a running mate, then-Republican presidential candidate Trump said to a group of top campaign aides, “I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?”

“She’s bright, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, and the people would love her!,” he added, according to the Post.

According to the paper, then-presidential candidate Trump was so keen to the idea of Ivanka as a vice-presidential pick and “cool to other options, including then-Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, that his team polled the idea twice,”

Ivanka told her father it was not a good idea leading Trump to chose Pence after he gave a “vicious and extended monologue” about former President Bill Clinton and Trump’s 2016 rival Hillary Clinton at a breakfast event.

Ivanka, serves as a senior adviser to her father in the White House and has been a prominent fixture during her father’s political career.

Trump, has often praised what he sees as his daughter’s political talent, suggesting in August that his daughter would be a better presidential candidate than California Sen. Kamala Harris, calling the Democratic vice presidential nominee “incompetent.”

“I want to see the first woman president also, but I don’t want to see a woman president get in to that position the way she’d do it, and she’s not competent, she’s not competent,” he said during a rally in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

“They’re all saying, ‘We want Ivanka.’ I don’t blame you.”
