Cuomo on possible New York quarantine: ’I don’t think it’s legal’

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Saturday that an enforced quarantine for the state and its adjacent neighbors might not be legal and that it would be a ’ federal declaration of war on states’. Trump had earlier said he’s considering a short-term quarantine of ’hot spots’ in parts of the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, but later backtracked from it.

And yet every early case of CCP Virus in NC is tied DIRECTLY to travelers from NYC. Quarantining a state HEAVILY infected is tantamount to "declaring war"?!? What does he call New Yorker's bioterrorism?

There is a lot of shit happening that seems borderline illegal. Optimistically we are all hoping to keep as many people healthy as possible, but at some point the trade offs on civil liberties and economic concerns will need to be addressed.

I doubt think he wants to get in to a pissing match with the POTUS, NY is big but the Trump train will run right over it.

They're hoping a pile of bodies will lift their candidate into the presidency in November, but Americans will remember who brought aid and who stockpiled ventilators.

Well, there will be a lot of questions on the legality of coronavirus measures not only in US but many other non-Autoritarian countries as well. In the end it will probably com down to the result. Even constitutional courts are somewhat dependent on public opinion. If big numbers of people die, courts will not find in favor of those stopping measures to lower the numbers. Different story if the death toll turns out to be relatively minor in the end.
