translated from Spanish: Covid-19: New York City again banned eating inside restaurants

Faced with a new wave of coronavirus cases and the continued progression of the disease, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo again banned eating inside restaurants and enclosed places. Let us remember at this time of year, it is one of the coldest in the north, so it is inferred that this restriction would nullify the shops of working, since the option of eating out or on the verdicts, because of the weather would not be feasible. So it would reduce restaurants to take away. 

As of Monday, you will only be allowed to eat abroad or buy takeaways, Cuomo said at a press conference in Albany, the state capital.

The official gave the order despite opposition from the food sector, which warned that there would be layoffs during the holiday season while the federal government has not yet approved the restriction relief measures.

Public health experts have repeatedly warned that dining indoors in restaurants, especially in small, crowded premises, increases the risk of coronavirus transmission. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), eating at these premises carries a «high risk.» COVID-19 has killed more than 35,000 people in New York State, the vast majority in New York City. Most deaths occurred in the spring and early summer, when the state was the epicenter of america’s initial outbreak.
