Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Friday that people ‘need to be ready’ for New York staying in lockdown until the end of May as he gave the grave prediction that at least half of the city would become infected by coronavirus.

Speaking on Good Morning America as the US topped the world’s COVID-19 hotspots with 86,000 infections, de Blasio was asked if the city would stay shuttered ‘through May’.

He answered: ‘I think we need to be ready for that,’ then went on to slam President Trump’s Easter deadline to reopen the country as something that gave ‘false hope’ to the nation.

De Blasio also warned that ‘more than half’ of New York City – which has a population of 8.6million – would become infected with the virus at any one time.
