As NYC de Blasio Talks Quarantine UNSG Guterres Vacations in Lisbon New Year in Bronx

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY / BRONX, Dec 29 – As 2020 comes to a close in New York City, its mayor Bill de Blasio on December 29 held a press conference urging that anyone traveling back into the city test and quarantine for COVID-19.

   But what of the UN diplomats and bureaucrats whom the city hosts, notably UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres who left his public-funded mansion on Sutton Place to vacation in Portugal, and said he may also visit the United Kingdom? 

 Inner City Press sought to ask the question at de Blasio's press conference, video here, but did not get the question in via WebEx as PIX 11, the Daily News and a self-described atheist from WBAI were called on. (De Blasio said, "Whatever works for you, God bless.")

  So Inner City Press submitted the question through the WebEx platform chat to panelist Doctor Dave A. Chokshi the Commissioner of the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. We'll see. 

 In even more local NYC news, Inner City Press on December 28 covered the online Town Hall meeting at which Bronx Assembly-member Michael A. Blake passed the baton to his successor, Chantel Jackson who spoke of her Belize-born mother working for a union, and her desire to carry the voice of Bronxite to Albany. Again, we'll see.

The long-abandoned courthouse on Third Avenue by the 42nd Precinct was discussed, as well as how and whether truly small businesses can access future Paycheck Protection Program loans, as issue Inner City Press covers along with the Fair Finance Watch. Watch this site.
