Brooklyn man arrested for allegedly hoarding masks, coughing on FBI agents

A Brooklyn man claiming to be infected with the coronavirus coughed on FBI agents who were investigating him for hoarding medical supplies, the US Attorney’s Office said Monday.

Baruch Feldheim, 43, is facing charges of assault and making false statements to the feds on Sunday outside his Borough Park home where he allegedly peddled and stored massive amounts of N95 respirator masks, federal officials said.

Feldheim is also accused of price-gouging. On March 18, he’s suspected of selling a New Jersey doctor about 1,000 of the masks for $12,000, a markup of roughly 700 percent, authorities said.

The accused fraudster also directed another doctor to an Irvington, NJ, auto repair shop to pick up another order. There, the doctor reported to investigators that Feldheim was allegedly hoarding enough medical supplies “to outfit an entire hospital.”

Materials included: hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes, chemical cleaning supply agents and surgical supplies.

By last Monday, Feldheim was operating from his Brooklyn home, offering to push surgical gowns to a nurse, the feds said.

Two days later, the suspected hoarder received a gigantic shipment to his home of about eight pallets of face masks.

FBI agents then staked out his his house, first noticing empty boxes of N95 masks outside.

On Sunday, they said they witnessed “multiple instances” of people approach Feldheim’s residence and walked away with what appeared to be medical supplies.

The agents confronted Feldheim outside his house, keeping a safe social distance over coronavirus fears.

“When the agents were within four to five feet of him, Feldheim allegedly coughed in their direction without covering his mouth,” the US attorney’s release said. “At that point, Feldheim told the FBI agents that he had the Coronavirus,” the statement said.

Feldheim then allegedly lied to FBI agents regarding his possession and sale of medical supplies.

He falsely told the agents that he worked for a company that bought and sold PPEs and that he never took physical custody of the materials.

Following Feldheim’s arrest, the FBI Monday night raided a warehouse on Pennsylvania Avenue in the industrial section of Linden, N.J. that housed Feldhim’s suspected stash of 80,000 masks. a source said.

Mask-wearing agents and other workers placed the eight pallets of medical supplies into a box truck.

The arrest comes after President Trump claimed that some medical supplies were being swiped from New York City hospitals, which Mayor Bill de Blasio dismissed as insulting.

NYPD commissioner on losing five members to coronavirus: ‘We don’t really even have time to mourn’

Westlake Legal Group 9f7e5ebd-image-5 NYPD commissioner on losing five members to coronavirus: 'We don't really even have time to mourn' Yael Halon fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/new-york-city fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/media fnc article 73ac70eb-3cbf-50ab-8bf4-e34118691aee

New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea joined “The Story” Monday to discuss the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the force after a uniformed officer and four civilian members succumbed to the virus.

“Five members of the family … it’s a very difficult time for the New York City Police Department,” Shea said.

“Any time we lose someone, it’s difficult. This is a very surreal feeling. We pride ourselves in taking care of our family and we’re in a situation right now where we don’t really even have time to mourn. It’s every man and every woman stepping in and trying to get a mission done. And we will mourn, but it won’t be today. There is just too much work to do.”

NYPD CONFIRMS ANOTHER DEATH DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

With the Big Apple now the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S., the NYPD said it was dealing with a surge of officers calling out sick, with more than 1,140 officers testing positive for the virus. Despite the growing number, Shea insisted that his members were “well-positioned in terms of protective equipment.”

“It’s an invisible enemy we are fighting here,” he said. “It has a lot of people nervous. I can tell you that the safety of the men and women of this police department is the first thing that I think about when I wake up and it’s the last thing I think about when I go to sleep at night. Not just that. It’s their families as well.”

CORONAVIRUS HITTING NEW YORK LIKE A ‘BULLET TRAIN,’ CUOMO WARNS

Shea reiterated there are “many, many systems in place in terms of replenishing” protective equipment, but the department remains fully stocked for the time being.

“Messaging that back and forth to the men and women of the police department is the utmost importance to me … but it really is an ongoing process in terms of making sure that they have everything that they need from … Tyvek suits, to goggles, to masks, to gloves, to hand sanitizer … all of it. We do have it on hand. How much do we have on hand? How long will it last? That’s the unknown in this because nobody can really put their finger on how long this will last.”

“I am a hundred percent confident that…this police department will rise up to any and all challenges to do whatever it takes to keep the people of this city safe.”

— NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea, ‘The Story’

Asked to address concerns of civil unrest with close to 14 percent of the police force out sick, Shea said it was “all hands on deck,” but noted a drop in crime due to social distancing.

NYPD COMMISSIONER SAYS FORCE IS ‘IN MIDDLE’ OF CORONAVIRUS ‘FIGHT’

“I know from the outside, you may have those questions but I am a hundred percent confident that the men and women of this police department will rise up to any and all challenges to do whatever it takes to keep the people of this city safe,” he said. “I have absolutely no doubt about it.”

Shea added, “The good news here is one of the reasons we are able to do so many things with so many people out is that we have seen a dropoff in people on the street. I would say 99 percent … of the time people are heeding the instructions and knowing this isn’t a first-line police officer’s and nurse’s fight. This is all New Yorkers joining together.

“By and large what you are seeing is empty streets, empty parks … people [are] staying home and we really thank the people of New York for doing that and we need them to do it just a little bit longer to help us on this.”

New York Knicks owner James Dolan has tested positive for the coronavirus, the team said Saturday night.

The diagnosis makes Dolan, who is also the executive chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company, the first major American professional sports team owner to have a confirmed case.

“He has been in self-isolation and is experiencing little to no symptoms,” the team said in a statement. “He continues to oversee business operations.”

New York has been the state struck heaviest among a global pandemic of COVID-19, with at least 52,318 cases reported as of Saturday afternoon and more than 700 deaths. Roughly half of those cases have been in or around New York City, the Knicks’ home city.

For most people, the novel coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, which can include fever and cough but also milder cases of pneumonia, sometimes requiring hospitalization.

The illness causes a greater risk of death for people with underlying health problems and for older adults.

Popular NYC dive bar doing virtual happy hour amid coronavirus quarantine

New York City, which has become an epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, is now a ghost town, locked down and empty. Finally, the city that never sleeps is no longer awake.

The Big Apple has approximately 27,000 bars and restaurants. But that won’t stop the cool kids of Downtown Manhattan, who never go farther north than 14th Street, from having a party.

The party now is just online.

It takes place Saturday at 6 p.m. on the video app Zoom “as a way to celebrate our two years and connect with our friends, loved ones and all those who have supported us along the journey,” Caraballo said.

He added: “Today, we’re celebrating our second anniversary at Boys Don’t Cry. The last two years have been such an amazing rollercoaster ride and none of it would not have been possible without the support of our ever-growing community of patrons.”

The bar, a new city hotspot, is located in one of the last neighborhoods in Manhattan yet to be gentrified into a corporate city of brands and suburban lifestyles: the Lower East Side. Across two blocks near the border of Chinatown, tourists and locals see a New York from a time gone by: Regina’s Grocery sells old-school Italian delicacies, the kids love to get their ink at Evil & Love Tattoo, and dudes get their hair cut at the international hip-hop barbershop Frank’s Chop Shop.

“We opened Boys Don’t Cry in March of 2018 with the intention of providing the Lower East Side with a neighborhood space to eat, drink & smile,” said Caraballo about his bar that nightly plays the sports games of the day.

They call it an “elevated dive,” like a dive bar for young cool kids who aren’t trendy but create the trends: creatives, models, athletes, big city folks doing big global things.

Said Caraballo: “Our original plan was to celebrate our two year anniversary with all of our beloved regulars and fellow lower east siders in real life, but sometimes plans, and circumstances, change. We figured during this temporary hiatus from mezcal shots, late-night games of pool and modern symposium, we can still get drunk together and pretend we’re on Orchard Street.”

New York remained the worst-hit U.S. city on Friday as the virus continued to pummel New York City, keeping it shut down for weeks.

Caraballo, encouraging patrons to join the digital party, added: “Let’s get drunk, responsibly!”

U.S. Navy hospital ships heading to coronavirus-plagued New York and Los Angeles should “comfort” people in those cities, Navy Secretary Thomas Modly said Saturday.

Modly said the 1,000-bed ships — painted white and adorned with large red crosses — have become a symbol of the United States’ compassion and “capability to respond quickly to crises.”

“This will really be the first time that they’ve been used in the United States,” he said on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” “I asked the question back in February whether or not they could be used to assist in this crisis, and they’ve thought very creatively about how we could get these ships ready on time, and they’re on their way.”

Although the USNS Mercy and USNS Comfort are not designed to help with infectious diseases, the Navy thought the ships could take some of the pressure off the coastal cities’ crowded emergency rooms.

“It was just a matter of saying, ‘OK, how can we accelerate some of the maintenance things, put some things off for a later time?’ so that we could still get these ships up there on time to help with this crisis,” Modly said. “Because every day matters. And so it’s been great.”

Modly told the “Fox & Friends” hosts that Americans should feel confident that “their Navy is doing what we expect their Navy to do.”

“In addition to these two ships, I hope they also recognize that we have 90 other ships that are out there at sea performing operational missions to defend the country,” he said. “And we do this every day. … There are young Americans on those ships, and they are incredible.”

Modly said he hopes the people of New York and Los Angeles “get a sense of comfort” from seeing the ships moored in their city.

“And, more importantly, I hope the ships are able to actually do their mission,” he said.

His daughter may be a globally famous singer with a net worth of millions — but that doesn’t help him pay his employees.

Joe Germanotta, the father of Lady Gaga, said Friday that his New York City restaurant would be closed for the next month amid the coronavirus outbreak — and he’s trying to raise money to pay his furloughed staff.

“I’m doing the best I can but we had to close Joanne for the month,” Germanotta tweeted. “Our staff needs some help financial. Any help for our employees will be appreciated.”

He linked the post to a crowdsourcing page asking for donations for the staff as the restaurant “has had to lay off almost 30 employees until we are able to reopen our doors,” the page said.

Lady Gaga’s dad says coronavirus hurting his NYC restaurant, vows to support impacted employees

Germanotta owns Joanne Trattoria, an Italian restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, which has seen a 70 percent decrease in business since Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered all bars and restaurants to close except for takeout.

The plan was intended to prevent the spread of the virus, Germanotta told Fox Business last week.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo last Sunday issued a statewide order, urging residents to stay home except for work and to buy essentials.

“These kids have been with me for eight years … they’re kind of like my children at this point,” Germanotta told Fox Business. “I intend to keep them on some type of stipend to keep them going.”

Germanotta also owns Art Bird & Whiskey Bar, which the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is moving to evict from Grand Central Terminal, accusing Germanotta of refusing to pay rent.

He said his business has been hurt by subpar health conditions inside the terminal.

“The bathrooms are truly less than what you’d expect in a food concourse,” he told Fox Business. “It’s continually dirty. They don’t clean up. There are some pest control problems down there.”

New York City hospitals are headed toward a critical “inflection point” at which they will run out of emergency equipment and critical supplies as they treat a rising number of COVID-19 patients, a local emergency doctor said Friday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Dr. Allon Mordel — attending physician at NYU Langone and Bellevue Hospital Center’s emergency departments — said that as some of the nation’s best hospitals are hit by waves of incoming coronavirus cases, there is nothing they do not need.

“I can’t tell you on the citywide level what the exact need is,” Mordel said.

“I can tell you that cases are still rising. We are seeing more and more people. And, if resources stay limited, it’s obviously going to — there is going to be an inflection point in which we run out.”

The demand for safety equipment in New York City, the current epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, has reportedly become so dire this week that Mount Sinai West hospital nurses have resorted to wearing trash bags as protection against the virus.

Mordel said that he had the necessary equipment for his last shift, but that he could “only hope” he will continue to have enough for the shifts to come.

“Again, I would tell you we need more of everything. Because we have to prepare for more of everything. We have to prepare for more people coming in every single day,” he explained.

As of Thursday evening, there were more than 85,000 cases in the United States with more than 1,100 deaths. New York State has more than 39,000 cases, with over 23,000 of those reported in the Big Apple. There have been over 380 deaths recorded in the state thus far.

“I don’t think anyone in the world was ready for the expense that this pandemic presented,” Mordel told the “Friends” hosts. “I think it caught the entire world by surprise. And, it’s been a learning experience for everyone across the board.”

“And, I think what we learned from this will translate into a different approach for years to come,” he continued. “And, I can tell you we are seeing things — the use of technology and platforms like telehealth platforms that have had unprecedented need now that will probably carry on for many years to come.”

Tucker Carlson slams NYC leaders for ‘endangering’ public in early stages of coronavirus pandemic

Tucker Carlson focused the top of his Thursday show on New York City’s battle with the coronavirus, ripping city officials for increasing the “risk” for citizens and not taking the outbreak seriously in its early stages.

“As this deadly virus emerged from eastern China and began to spread inexorably across the globe, clearly headed here, leaders in New York not only failed to shield their citizens from it, they took affirmative and aggressive steps to increase the risk to their population,” Carlson said.

“Why would they do that? Well, because they were worried far more about being called racist than protecting human lives. That’s not an overstatement. That’s not hyperbole.”

GILLIBRAND RESPONDS TO CUOMO CRITICISM OF CORONAVIRUS AID PACKAGE: ‘THERE WILL BE ANOTHER BILL’

Carlson criticized New York City health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot, among others, who dismissed the incoming threat of the coronavirus in February.

“The risk to New Yorkers from coronavirus is low and … our preparedness as a city is very high,” Barbot said at a Feb. 2 press conference supporting the Chinatown Lunar New Year Parade and Festival. “There is no reason not to take the subway, not to take a bus, not to go out to your favorite restaurant and certainly not to miss the parade next Sunday [Feb. 9].”

“Future generations are gonna watch that video with their jaws open in disbelief,” Carlson said in response to Barbot. “How could someone charged with protecting public health so recklessly endanger it?”

The host also criticized State senators John Liu and Brian Kavanaugh, who also advocated for the parade and downplayed the threat of the virus.

Carlson also highlighted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio encouraged New Yorkers in early March to “get out on the town despite Coronavirus.”

“Soon after that, people in New York inevitably started to get sick, in some cases very sick. In some cases, they died,” Carlson said. “And then suddenly de Blasio was on ‘Meet the Press’ shrieking that Donald Trump had abandoned the city.”

Carlson said although blaming President Trump “almost always works,” this pandemic may be “too horrible” to forget what de Blasio and other officials did.

“The media play along and move on to the next thing and no one remembers what actually happened. Will that happen this time? Maybe not,” Carlson said. “This time might be different. This pandemic is too horrible.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. responded Thursday to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s criticism of the $2 trillion coronavirus response package, telling “Bill Hemmer Reports” the money is not meant to plug the holes blown in state budgets by the pandemic.

Gillibrand told host Bill Hemmer that the bill was intended as “emergency relief to the most in need [and] at risk [people].”

“There will be another bill and probably another after that and another after that,” said Gillibrand. “This is not a short-term crisis this is a long-term crisis. Every state is going to see more and more cases.”

Cuomo has complained that while New York is receiving about $3 billion in aid, the contagion has blown a hole in the state budget more than three times that size.

Gillibrand pointed out that the bill, which the Senate approved 96-0 late Wednesday, allocated $150 billion to the hospital industry.The House is expected to approve the bill on Friday and send it to President Trump to sign.

The senator also praised Cuomo for doing what she called “an excellent job,” dealing with the pandemic.

“He is meeting the needs of his constituents,” she said. “We have drive-thru testing in a lot of places that have cases.” She also noted that Cuomo has worked successfully to turn the Jacob Javits Convention Center in Hell’s Kitchen into a makeshift overflow hospital.

With states like New York, Pennsylvania and Callifornia essentially closed for business, the state governments are unable to reap sales taxes and business taxes during this time.

A Holocaust survivor and New York rabbi who helped dozens of families escape the Nazis has died of COVID-19, according to a local lawmaker.

“Rabbi [Romi] Cohn lived an incredible life of service, helping 56 families escape Nazi tyranny,” Rep. Max Rose, D-N.Y., tweeted Tuesday. “I hope you’ll join me in praying for him [and] his family.”

Cohn was at least 91 years old, according to reports and his biography from the Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation. Details of his death due to coronavirus were unknown at this time.

Rose’s tweet included a video of when Cohn led the U.S. House of Representatives in opening prayer two months ago to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Born in Czechoslovakia, he was 10 years old when the Nazis invaded his homeland, according to the Times of Israel.

He eventually immigrated to the United States and settled in New York City, becoming a prominent rabbi.

The city has become a hotspot for the novel coronavirus.

“Rabbi Cohn’s career is merely a continuation of a lifetime of fighting for the Jewish faith,” Rose had said after the rabbi’s prayer before Congress. “His early life was uprooted by the rise of the Nazi Party, their invasion of Czechoslovakia, and the outbreak of World War II.”

As a child, Cohn saw the Hitler Youth attack his father in the street and eventually became the youngest member of the Czechoslovakian partisan forces resisting the Nazis at 15 years old, according to Rose.

The majority of Cohn’s family perished in the Holocaust, Rose has said. Of his family that included six siblings, only Cohn, his father and two sisters survived.

“Our freedoms are not free — we must fight for them or risk losing them,” said Rose, who is an Army veteran, after Cohn’s prayer on the House floor. “Rabbi Cohn is a model, an example for all of us to follow, and I thank him for his extraordinary life of service.”
