New York diamond district sets goal to create $100 million fund for diamonds

NEW YORK — New York’s diamond district is calling on the state legislature to create a $100-million fund to combat the growing diamond industry.

The New York State Diamond and Gem Council, a trade association of the diamond industry, released the $100m goal Monday in response to the recent deaths of three young children who died of a rare blood disorder in the city.

The deaths occurred at the Diamond & Gilt Diamond & Platinum Diamonds in the Hudson Valley.

The deaths prompted Gov.

Andrew Cuomo to announce a $1.6-million public health program to help families affected by the coronavirus.

The Diamond & Galleries of the City of New York will raise $100M to fund a public health initiative that will provide $1M per year for three years to the NY Diamond & Gems Council to implement a national health initiative to address the growing threat of coronaviruses, the council said in a statement.

“The Diamond&Galleries of New New York City’s mission is to support families impacted by the pandemic, and our mission to help them understand that their lives can and should be made better through a coordinated and comprehensive approach to protecting our community,” the statement said.

“Our commitment to families, and the state of New Yorkers, extends beyond the financial benefit.”

The council also said the program would also provide resources to help people recover from COVID-19 and other illnesses.

“We will also work with the New York Diamond & Gold Association and the NYGA to develop and implement a state-wide COVID strategy that will help provide a safety net for our community as we work to end the pandemics outbreak and the epidemic, said the statement.

A federal government-funded COVID prevention fund is set to begin in April.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has estimated that 1.7 million people will be exposed to COVID.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has also estimated that 2.1 million people in the U. S. will have been exposed to coronaviral infections by the end of this year.
