Democratic Gov. Inslee[WA] was also inundated with cases and reacted much swifter and safely than Cuomo did. That's why King County is doing so much better and NYC doing so much worse.

Well, the population density of King County is 913 people per square mile and that of New York City is 27,000.

Elevators, subways, taxis, corner bodegas where most people get food. A person in New York will get more exposures to other people, closer, in the first hour of the day than most people in King County will have in 24 hours.

Yes, Cuomo was late on some things, and deBlasio even later. Then again their first warning was probably when the first cases began arriving. They likely didn’t have a.national health apparatus sounding the alarm for six weeks while doing nothing, and they didn’t dismantle the bureaucracy that was set up precisely to give advance warning of this kind of quite predictable calamity.

So there’s plenty of blame to go around.
