SOUNDBITE (English) Mayor Bill de Blasio, (D) New York: "The number is staggering. The initial projection is, at least, half a million New Yorkers are either already out of work or soon will be.

I said in there they're another kind of first responder: They've showed up to help people in need and they've been a lifeline for people in this community."++EDIT ENDS ON A SOUNDBITE++STORYLINE: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the city is working around the clock to make sure no New Yorker goes hungry. He spoke at a school in the city's Lower East Side neighborhood Tuesday, saying the economic hit from the coronavirus pandemic could leave a large portion of the city's workforce without jobs. He added that "at least, half a million New Yorkers are either already out of work or soon will be." To help with this, the city has set up 434 sites for New Yorkers to pick up free meals, he said. One of those sites is located at Alfred E. Smith Elementary School, where De Blasio and other officials stopped by to thank food service workers helping in this effort. "They've served 3,100 meals in the past week to people who need it. They're good people. I said in there they're another kind of first responder: They've showed up to help people in need and they've been a lifeline for people in this community," De Blasio said. This as New York state recorded 731 new coronavirus deaths Tuesday, marking the biggest one-day jump in the outbreak. The state's death toll since the beginning of the outbreak is now 5,489 deaths. For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as a fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and can be fatal.The U.S. has more diagnosed cases in the global pandemic than any other country, according to figures compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Projections show the nation will see the peak impact of the virus later this month.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
