De Blasio Appoints NYC "Recovery Czar" 11 Months After Start Of Pandemic

11 months into NYC's COVID-19 outbreak, and with indoor-dining-capacity slowly expanding, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has finally appointed a so-called COVID "recovery czar" following months of criticism of his leadership of the city's public health resources.

The mayor's pick is Lorraine Grillo, who will lead a newly-constituted, weekly “war room” that spans across government leaders, agencies, business leaders and nonprofits in the city.

Input from all corners will reportedly be applied.

De Blasio made the announcement on Monday morning.

By way of an excuse for the delay, the mayor said the city had been overwhelmingly focused on “the emergency reality of turning this city around and the battle of Covid,” de Blasio said during a Monday press briefing.

“Now, to bring all these strands together, we decided a czar could really make this thing go into the next gear.”
