Check it out below, courtesy of Nathan Wiseman.Of course, “Comfortably Numb” was only one of many, many highlights from the whole show.

New York registers record 731 virus deaths in 24 hours

first_imgHe said social distancing was working, urging New Yorkers to continue to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary.”I know it’s hard but we have to keep doing it,” Cuomo implored.On Monday, the governor extended a shutdown until near the end of the month, ordering schools and non-essential businesses to remain closed until April 29.New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said it was “too early to draw any definite conclusions” about whether the situation was improving in the Big Apple.”I want to really make sure none of us in public life tell you we have turned a corner until we are absolutely certain,” he told reporters.Elsewhere, a crew member of the military hospital ship USNS Comfort tested positive for the virus, a navy spokesperson told AFP.The vessel arrived in New York last month to relieve the burden on hospitals overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients.”The crew member is isolated from patients and other crew members. There is no impact to Comfort’s mission, and this will not affect the ability for Comfort to receive patients,” said the spokesperson. New York state has recorded its highest number of COVID-19 deaths in 24 hours, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Tuesday, adding though that hospitalizations appeared to be “plateauing.”Cuomo said 731 people succumbed to the new coronavirus on Monday, bringing the state’s total death toll to 5,489. The previous single-day record was 630, set on Friday.New York has borne the brunt of America’s deadly coronavirus pandemic, accounting for around half the number of deaths across the country. COVID-19 has killed more than 11,000 people in the United States, according to a running tally by Johns Hopkins University.Cuomo said New York appeared be nearing the peak of its pandemic, with a three-day average of hospitalizations down.He added that intensive care admissions and intubations had also declined.”We’re projecting that we’re reaching a plateau in the number of hospitalizations,” Cuomo told reporters.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Sammon provides aerial threat – O’Shea

O’Shea said: “Strength-wise, Kevin and Jon are fantastic, but I’d have to agree with you, height-wise Conor would have that advantage – and I’d think he would probably be a little bit more nimble than two fantastic players in Cascarino and Quinn. “I have played against Conor once or twice, and he’s going to offer us a good physical presence up front and a threat in behind as well. He’s a big man who is quite agile and can get about pitch quite well. “The Polish defence, especially with Shane and Conor starting up front tomorrow, hopefully will have a very tough start to the game because from what they have shown in training, they won’t let their defenders rest on the ball, the massive pressure they put on the defenders. “Hopefully that will give us a chance to get up pitch and squeeze the game a bit more and we can take the game to Poland.” Trapattoni is hoping the pace and power of both Sammon and Long will help his team stretch the Polish defence and allow wide men Robbie Brady and James McClean to prosper. He said: “They give us depth, they can open up the game. We have two possibilities, one to open up and develop the game, and they will also hold the ball up. “When defenders are under pressure, they need that support. This is one of the characteristics they have.” Skipper John O’Shea is backing debutant Conor Sammon to give Ireland the aerial threat they have been missing since the days of Tony Cascarino and Niall Quinn. The Derby frontman will make his senior international debut in Wednesday night’s friendly against Poland at the Aviva Stadium as manager Giovanni Trapattoni takes a look some of the newer members of his squad. Sammon, who stands at 6’2″, will partner West Brom’s Shane Long in attack with the likes of Kevin Doyle and Jonathan Walters held in reserve. Press Association read more
