More than 23,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, with one-third of the victims in New York City.
The sports world hit pause more than a month ago because of COVID-19, with no idea when (or if) the games will resume. When the athletes do return to work, Cuomo told CBS the games should be played without fans in the stands. Per Pro Football Talk:
“I would like to start watching sports. You know, whether or not we sit in a stadium with thousands of others, I don’t know that that is in the short term for the foreseeable future, but I don’t know why we can’t watch it on television, right? Why can’t you have games with no audiences, and just to start the sports and entertainment so people have something to watch and follow?”
More than a week ago, President Donald Trump told the commissioners of North America’s major professional sports leagues that he wants fans returning to stadiums and arenas as early as August. Trump also said he wants the NFL season to start on time in September.
