JLGreene: For a Better New York
Our Response to COVID-19
The coronavirus pandemic presents enormous challenges to our way of life. Here in New York City the heroism and selflessness of so many individuals continues daily, as frontline workers treat the ill and care for our community at great risk to themselves.
ProPublica Reports on Pandemic
ProPublica published their first coronavirus investigation on February 28th, reporting on the grave missteps at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that hampered officials’ ability to track and contain the virus’s spread in the US.
