NEW YORK (77WABC)- Governor Andrew Cuomo spoke Sunday during service at Riverside Church in Manhattan where he said, “Covid is not the only virus attacking America..”
He also threatened legal action regarding President Trump’s remarks Friday in which he said the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine which has a 90% efficacy rate, would not be delivered to New York by April like other states due to Cuomo’s previous remarks that a vaccine under the Trump could not be trusted and therefore must be investigated further. Trump said Friday that he would not send the vaccine to New York until he received authorization from the governor.
