USA: New Rochelle Residents React to Their Area Becoming First Containment Zone

Residents of New Rochelle reacted to their area becoming the country’s first coronavirus “containment zone” on Wednesday, as preparations began for the arrival of national guard troops.

“A lot of people actually thought that I was closed in to where I live. Are you in the zone? Are you locked in? Do you have enough food? Are you well? Can you get out? Can you travel? They really thought that was all going on, they really did not understand,” said Sonny Hagdenrof, a resident.

“I’m wearing my gloves, I put the sanitizer on top of my gloves. I’m ok with the sanitizer, I’m ok with wipes, I’m ok with toilet paper, I’m covered. I just worry about my husband because he is 84 years old, he’s got a heart condition and he’s got diabetes,” said Patty, another resident.

The national guard will be deployed to assist in sanitizing the public schools and some public places in town as well as delivering food to quarantined families and individuals who are isolated.

The number of reported cases in the United States more than doubled in 48 hours, with over 1,300 confirmed cases in the country and 38 deaths as of Wednesday. Worldwide, the disease has infected over 126,000 people and killed more than 4,600 as o Thursday morning.
