  • New York : Les écoles resteront fermées pour le reste de l'année scolaire

Le gouvernement de l'Etat de New-York, Andrew Cuomo, a rejeté ce samedi, la décision annoncée quelques heures plus tôt, du maire de la ville de New-York, Bill de Blasio, de fermer définitivement les établissements scolaires pour le reste de l'année académique. "Cela nous aidera clairement à sauver des vies".

"Après un examen très attentif, j'annonce aujourd'hui que les écoles publiques de New York resteront fermées pour le reste de l'année scolaire", a déclaré de Blasio lors d'une conférence de presse samedi sur l'évolution de l'épidémie de coronavirus dans la métropole.

Toutefois, en milieu de journée, Andrew Cuomo a affirmé qu'il avait seul l' " autorité légale " pour prendre cette décision.
