lower than some of the more neighborhoods we're working with. this. 'd year so. i think it's safe to say that. will be remembered the world over as one of the most trying things of 2020 by the end of march the country with the hardest was the united states in new york city particularly. my friend maria lives in new york i've asked her its record a bit of her life during the pandemic. time any list and she. talking to you. which is global epicenter of. atomic so this is this is my 15 month old son who's playing by his solve as are most of the other kids in the park and normally there wouldn't be a single patch of grass available to sit on the little erie out here. so corrin
team in new york is a little bizarre because there's there's like 2 worlds right so we're in a world where we feel very isolated we're working from home but we're still working and then there's this like other part of new york that we don't see when you look at like the map of how it is living some of the wealthier neighborhoods it's been far more contained and the numbers are much lower than some of the poor neighborhoods it's like 2 different worlds like i don't know what's going on over there talk to be honest. he said. i got married i moved to new york 10 years ago before that i was it toronto that's where i grew up. as i got to play this bizarre. disgusting. incredible place. and you just get caught. in our problems.
to work on wall street we live in park slope in brooklyn. so you go to broccoli and then you see like $5000000.00 apartments and one block over there is like a project where it's like people don't have jobs they've been impacted badly because there's no hospitals there we're fortunate that we both work in technology it's very easy for us to work at home if you have a blue collar job you got to go and those are very blue collar neighborhoods. just 2 days ago good family friend he passed away from kobe that he was in his sixty's and his daughter my eyes position was i'm for i stove she brought it home everyone got sick but with mild symptoms and he got sick and died we're in a situation where. there are 3.
patrol people are just kind of walking in making sure that people are keeping their distance we actually wanted to get out because everywhere you look at the trajectory chart on up but not like. right at new york is like a hospital so we create i'm to you know what if you just get out so in the midst of this planning and talking about it you know i think and they're shut down the border security or hoping that if people hold window too i think or that and during that time. i think it's much the in the most implicit way like help terrorists when you're set that matters well i'm scared of getting sick i'm scared of getting my son sad and scared of anyone in my family getting sick. i was carried out like crying that being and right. there a sense i wake up every morning or my new day going to be great and then by the end
of the day to like 300 people that today and i feel like that's our whole life closing in on their meal it. does appear it is this is good is very good if you read the book in hospital god you superior to put the body in the in 18 will ya. please dayside this is a real. after talking to maria i looked at new york's most affected areas and just like she said they were predominantly poor neighborhoods at the top of that list was unpressed we. were outplayed here on parlor which is on the way to the school and their jihad barracks moving bodies i've tracked that's right city the city usually has been growing about $47.00 ads are they now every day or 87 or 8. per day. just from the virus that's why they were so inundated.
by father started business in 1940. people until. i was your care whether it's welfare reason i was 300. it was the old classic was so was the schools of our garbage there's a number of hospitals have closed out over the years so it's just more difficult for 'd one hospital shouldn't cover the area that. elmhurst became the focal point because right in the beginning they had 13 deaths a one day and they answer 4 or 5 days over the summer just kind of exploring their family so it was like it's a hospital because i was sacked. and they can't go in to the hospital to visit them because the us was closed to families you know the person dies and nobody can stop it and we're at risk so it's all we care it's not me going to the hospital and
that's the last i miss all of these team member die yes. but i do take photos for folks i mean i've had a few people. i don't like the liability aspect of it per se but i feel i feel she was a great source not letting anybody at you know what the general sense aries will lead a raft like 2 or 3 people and yes stay in your car and watch the burial there so of course 'd that account at least and now or hours like watches have. the 3rd round i heard him say so they've got a least 3 rows and it's high we're working with can source outside of the state because they're just so inundated here you can't get a commission box until the end of march or the promised city and 'd then the hospitals are telling folks that they have 3 or 6 days to move their outlaws or
they go off city very unlike anything i had to 'd say to my father ever seen anything quite like this downtown i mean i've dealt with plane crashes 911 this is just everyday it's with him 20 families coming in that they want to be out the ski helpless. i'm a legal how many deaths of athens certainly in our community we probably don't know 100 year olds in the last 2 weeks and we have more than 100 more to go i'm going to do probably almost as much work 'd inside for more than ideal listeria within the best we can but we have a small staff you know organise we're going to round a lot anyway you know we're exhausted. i sleep myself here 'd at all i worry a little bit about my father and my uncle they say they're going straight sets they're trying to be careful analysts made 'd money 'd says my so i'm alison
stewart yes she does yard me and i have 8 treatments that my wife may. not have i am a pink one and i haven't added any great ones. since you want me to take the bait or bites i will search by forever. i don't have time to think about 142 of all this area but they will be right i had a little over 6 o'clock in the am. and i think since it's a busy have no 'd science. they look back on this one to start. a different way. for now it's just. so you just keep going. i wonder why for areas such disproportionately high mortality rates i restarted keesha bullis in the same area one patient 0 on. the run you know
snacking hard freedom reason when there are no. gardening. but you have to put it out. seeing as how many. see that we are having our mask on and a ring round ring in your which i considered one of them were area out west and westchester made the news be. lawyer in your rest now being known as patient 0 to measure to manhattan and that's how it started spreading the new york. heart. managed to get our order to. be. placed and my sister works for a new york presbyterian hospital she has been now is already going to be on. the name are my uncle who have been proclaimed. michael vick 19 it's unfortunate
that there are 16 the number is that it's a lot of war and black and spanish and me and minority people that are getting it who are. the core population are dying one as in everyday circumstances when you go to a hospital in new york city and probably in any other age the 1st thing they actually raised you having been a 4 or 5 different times that i've been we have not been able to get health insurance yet they're telling you you can give your health insurance but if you're not working out a new ford make a 100 or 2000 knowledge journey. they don't take your case seriously when you don't have insurance because that the end of the day or the hospital to look at how are they going to get countries with
universal have here we will treat or. a more prevented and level which is a lower to the hospitals evaluate based on the operation and how many hospitals should be there not in the rant it's focused on money we have one hospital money your malvern in hospital and from last year they haven't by name just shut it down they feel that it's not making enough money so therefore it's not needed although that's the only hospital in mt vernon are very overpopulated or area i definitely do think that because the hospitals are or are they are in the areas that give them more income.
and not rich i earlier in the south so i remember and i'm not rich that's considerable or a bad area. you know where. people get shot at warners or and. i guess news and you almost become immune you know you get a mirror image of the fact that ok they're going to close down the only hospital and people using. it status aid but i wonder when all of this is out over we're all just involved right back to business as usual. i hope that we come out of is being kinder gentler to each other and that the hospitals this is their main focus on follow me here and not just out there and that we no longer are each other and richer or or you know black versus
this is how we used to know the russian that i. like this. all i think this. is. not the corona pandemic has given us a different russian ballet to tutu's all costumes just to kitchen past the stage. but it is the new guy that even if you see each square through the numbers tonight you know it's more is in lots of only what they. see as that was the right there you know how to escape chose to not sure we're not sure if you suppose there isn't anybody. yet to give him a piece was. designed video.
