New York Assemblyman Michael Blake on the Coronavirus in the Bronx

This week on "The Tent," a podcast through the Center for American Progress Action Fund, New York State Assemblyman Michael Blake explains the health and economic impacts of the coronavirus crisis on the Bronx.

New York City is one of several hot spots in the United States facing high infection and death rates from COVID-19. In the Bronx, the city’s most diverse borough, Black and Latino New Yorkers have borne the brunt of the pandemic’s health and economic effects. New York State Assemblyman Michael Blake (D) joins the pod this week to talk about the challenges residents in his district are up against and how the state and federal government can better support communities like his during this crisis.
