Two political odd fellows agree: if you don’t have to go out during the coronavirus scare, don’t.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got support Saturday from Sen. Ted Cruz after the 30-year-old liberal from the Bronx tweeted that New Yorkers should stop going to bars and restaurants amid the coronavirus outbreak that led President Donald Trump to declare a national state of emergency.

‘To everyone in NYC but ESPECIALLY healthy people & people under 40 (bc from what I’m observing that’s who needs to hear this again): PLEASE stop crowding bars, restaurants, and public spaces right now. Eat your meals at home,’ she tweeted.

‘If you are healthy, you could be spreading COVID,’ she added.

She directed the public to stay at least six feet away from others to avoid potentially spreading the virus.

‘Good advice — not just for NYC, but everywhere. If you can stay home, stay home. And wash your hands,’ Cruz tweeted.
