Video Transcript

RAY MCGUIRE: So what I would do differently is, you have to plan for this. And given what I've been able to do for four decades is plan. You have to plan for worst case scenarios, and you have to not only plan, you have to go through scenarios. And you got to get the right team in place. We knew the vaccine was coming. We knew the vaccine was coming.

We should have spent endless days planning for how we're going to distribute it, for one, endless days planning on informing New Yorkers of the impact and necessity to take the vaccine, while also emphasizing what we have been somewhat effective at, social distancing and mask. I would have over planned for this and communicated with New Yorkers in a way that didn't actually happen, which is why we're managing today through the poor management of the distribution of this and the poor management of how we inform New Yorkers.
