Cuomo keeps saying he only lied about WHERE people died. But he also still refuses to include probable deaths in the count -- and New York has a lot of them, because testing was scarce early.
This is the difference between the state dashboard that CTP uses and the count compiled from county sites used by Worldmeters. It's a huge difference.

As of today:

New York state dashboard: 37,851
County totals: 47,019
The CDC is closer to the county number because it has all the probables from NYC included. That's because the city reports separately, and De Blasio followed CDC directives to include probables.
Cuomo tried to get CDC to remove the NYC probables from the count but they refused.

Updated Burbio tracker!

% US K-12 students attending "virtual-only" schools = 33.6% (from 35.2% last week)
% US K-12 students attending "traditional" in-person/every day schools = 40.8%
% US K-12 students attending "hybrid" schools = 25.6%
Map of where schools are open vs. map of where Biden/CDC plan (everywhere red) recommends closed middle/high, force elementary hybrid and make all sports "virtual only." ImageImage
Burbio estimates that 93% of students currently attending full-time in-person schools are in Biden's red tier.

Biden's school closure plan recommends canceling school sports in about 2900 of 3000 U.S. counties. It's completely unhinged.
If you're red or pink on this map, Biden's school closure plan wants all sports to be "virtual only."
Only 2599 counties apparently. Mea culpa. Red is where Biden wants sports to be "virtual only."

Science shows us schools are low-risk settings everywhere in the world, with or without mitigation and regardless of community transmission. But you're not doing science, are you?
There is zero science behind 6 feet. An arbitrary doubling of WWO's 1 meter, and overwhelmingly counterindicated in the school context, where its principal effect is sitting kids home.

Your own Wisconsin study has zero distancing within classes.

Why waste vaccines on low-risk teachers when you're endorsing closures regardless?
