What's New York doing differently to the other states to keep the transmission down?

Probably 3 things, depending which state you compare it to...

 

1, Keeping most things shut way longer - their reopening is still in its nascent stages

2. They already had an enormous outbreak, which wiped through most of their densely populated and at-risk areas, so there's both more short-term immunity floating around and fewer "easy: targets

3. Staying outside - summer is the time for NYC to be outside, and they are

For the past day:

Hungary +3

Slovenia +17

Slovakia +19

Greece +60

Czechia +82

Austria +94

Croatia +116

N. Macedonia +205

Moldova +258

Poland +265

Bosnia +316

Serbia +386

Romania +592

Ukraine +819

 

Bulgaria still no info, but they had 330 the day before

 

I guess we might just close the borders again, the number of active cases is on the rise everywhere. In many places the record was broken during this week. The Balkans are especially dangerous.

I agree. Many countrys that rely on tourism especially were eager to reopen more sooner than later, so this uptick in cases was sadly foreseeable. I do hope ofc those countrys will be able to contain the spread.

Yes for 1) and 2), but it is summer everywhere...

 

New York is looking like many countries in Western Europe, and we will see if it can keep the contagion at a relatively low level as it continues to reopen - and if the "mandatory" quarantine is possible to enforce.

Also, people take it really seriously (both local/state gov officials and the general population). So you don’t see the ridiculous anti-mask sentiment that other places have, not to mention people are much more careful (admittedly this is an anecdotal observation).

We got hit very hard early on, so everyone takes it very seriously. People have been pretty good about wearing masks since late March. My apartment building has hand sanitizer next to the elevators and we are reminded to wear masks when we're in the lobby/elevator or in the laundry room. Cuomo also passed a law in April that allows businesses to refuse service to customers that don't wear masks. Pretty soon people just got used to it. It's now mid July and over 90 everyday, but most people still wear masks everywhere. Nobody goes anywhere without masks, whether it's the subway or the store, or just walking around to get some exercise. I've seen plenty of people jogging with masks on. When there are multiple people in an elevator people stand on opposite corners. Social distancing and mask wearing is now just part of our way of life.

This is really bad. The lockdowns in March/April/May are proving to have been basically for nothing. And the blame can be placed on a complete lack of leadership in this country.

Several states went into lockdown too early.

The US has illegitimate leaders.

Atlanta's back on phase 1.

This is something a little interesting that has happened. In GA, like a couple of other states, the Gov can create an executive order that cannot be overriden by local ordanances. But at least 2 cities (Savannah and Atlanta) have already passed orders that are more strict than the Gov orders. So far it doesn't look like the Gov is willing to fight over it.

 

FYI, GA had its highest new case count today - by over 1,000 from the previous record day. We've been lucky that deaths have stayed pretty low but i expect that to change in about another week.

GA basically looks like FL about 2 weeks ago.

Have any executive orders contradicted what they've done?
