Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled during his State of the State address a seven-step plan to rebuild New York after the pandemic.
Cuomo says his focus in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic includes continuing testing, setting up more rapid testing sites, getting New York residents vaccinated and planning for any future health crisis that the state may face in the future.
The governor says the financial burden caused by the pandemic should be handled by the federal government by taxing rich residents, saying the rich became richer during the crisis and the poor became poorer.
The governor says that Monday’s address was just a brief overview and that he will provide more details to his plan in the next three days.
He says another point is the racial disparities that were brought to the forefront because of the pandemic. He says vaccinating the disproportionately affected community will be a priority.
Cuomo also plans to work to make sure New York residents who lost jobs and homes will be addressed in the new year.
