Dr. Craig Spencer, who survived Ebola, on surge of coronavirus instances

June 23, 20203 min read


When Dr. Craig Spencer got on the New York City subway Monday morning following an overnight hospital shift, the emergency room doctor said all the people he saw were wearing masks.

"I think that people here remember how bad it was, really just a month, two months, ago and we don't want to go through that again," Spencer, director of global health in emergency medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, said Monday on CNBC's "Closing Bell."

“We're hoping that everyone around the country learns the lessons that we unfortunately had to learn the hard way," Spencer said, as New York City enters the second phase of its coronavirus reopening while other states across the U.S. see a spike in cases.

New York City, the epicenter of the country's outbreak, has seen its daily count of Covid-19 cases fall dramatically from its late May and early April levels, when more than 5,000 new infections were frequently being reported each day. Daily cases have been under 400 for over a week, according to the city's health department.

5. The article is gibberish.

Not written in English. Not transted from another language by a translator. Mostly English words strung together by someone or something that doesn't speak English. So I'd like to know what language the article was written in so I can evaluate its reliability.

6. There are three or four wonky words but the content is not gibberish.

Evaluate this: You'll catch more bees with honey than vinegar.

7. The article is gibberish.

I asked the question in a neutral way. You professed inability to understand the question. So I explained it. You still have not responded. And the saying in English involves catching flies, not bees.

9. The phrasing is garbled and confusing. That's why the poster wonders whether it

is being translated from another language.

10. I think it's translated from Spanish, because in Spanish the same verb can be used to

mean "to wear" and "to carry." (The verb is llevar.)

8. I cannot figure out what the writer is trying to convey

When Dr. Craig Spencer obtained on the New York City subway Monday morning following an in a single day hospital shift, the emergency room physician stated all of the individuals he noticed have been carrying masks. ... makes no sense ... obtained what on a subway?
Carrying masks? Not wearing them ... carrying?

New York City, the epicenter of the nation’s outbreak, has seen its every day rely of Covid-19 instances fall dramatically from its late May and early April ranges, What is an “every day rely”

Sigh .....
