...The NYPD is bracing for the coronavirus to hit New York City.

...The department is handing out "Thousands upon thousands of gloves, masks and wipes" to city cops to prepare them for an outbreak should it hit Big Apple streets, officials announced Wednesday.

..."We put out disinfectant to each and every command. As of now there's nothing in New York City.
