More New York City schools will be closed

Latest update: May 20, 2009 1:39 p.m.
The state closed 3 hospitals in Queens and now Jamaica hospital and the surrounding hospitals can’t handle the load of swine flu potentials. Jamaica Hospital has triage tents outside the building to handle the patients.

I ask myself why has New York waited so long to begin closing schools. Japan has closed thousands of schools to protect their children. Why has NYC waited so long and shut so few schools?  Could it be politics as usual or is it fears for the tourism trade?

Here is the latest out of the Big Apple:

    You ask the question:

    Well I’m sure you don’t need me to answer this but the answer is HELL YES! People will always be sacrificed over money and that’s the plain and simple truth especially here in NYC!!! Just wait until you hear of an outbreak in the NYC subway system. I’d like to see how they are going to handle that as it is the only means available for most people to get to work and most certainly the fastest way to spread this virus and turning it into a pandemic situation which I feel we are already in.
