On Friday, Cuomo announced that a mandate, which requires people working in non-essential businesses to stay at home, will take effect Sunday night. The current social distancing guidelines call for people to stay at least six feet from each other.
"I don't know what I am saying that people don't get", the governor said.
The Mayor lauded Cuomo's decision to ensure that all non-essential workers go home with the exception of people performing essential services for the city and state.
"It's insensitive. It's arrogant. And I am not kidding", he said. "I desire a plan in 24-hours so I can approve it".
"I play basketball", he said.
Cuomo once again said the results are leading the USA and are expected to because NY has performed so many more tests than any other state. "We are about two thirds or more of the cases in New York State, that's going to get worse". That could help get medical professionals back on the job, he said. He suggested possibly opening streets to pedestrian traffic.
The governor also emphasized that young people are not immune to COVID-19, and can spread the virus to people who may die. "We have bigger parks".
Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on Sunday said the White House recognised the urgency of New York's situation. "We did the Javits Center yesterday, and we were into some of the SUNY schools yesterday", he said.
Most state governors he had heard from estimated that their COVID-19 cases would peak in the middle of April, Semonite said.
According to Cuomo, New York State has roughly 15 times more confirmed coronavirus cases than any other state.
Victoria and News South Wales into lockdown
Outdoor gatherings are capped at 500 people, and indoor gatherings above 100 people are banned. Victoria has recorded 296 cases of COVID-19, after 67 new cases were confirmed on Sunday.
State and local officials, meanwhile, said they did not have enough tests to diagnose the disease, protective gear to slow its transmission, and medical equipment to treat those who have contracted it.
"We need millions of masks and hundreds of thousands of gowns and gloves", he said. California, which is banning non-essential businesses in the state like NY, is in third with 28 deaths.
Andrew Cuomo (D) is calling on the federal government to order companies to manufacture medical supplies under the Defense Production Act, which President Trump initiated last week.
This was the government's first major disaster declaration issued as a result of the coronavirus.
"For masks we were paying 85 cents".
New York's health facilities continue to be overloaded with patients, to the point state officials have said they expect to run out of ventilators and may soon run out of ICU beds. "This is impossible", he said.
Cuomo wired that infirmaries should double the collection of beds these days to be had around the state, pronouncing simplest 53,000 beds are actually open-but the curve suggests a necessity for 110,000 statewide within the coming weeks. This is not a long weekend. But, 40 percent up to 80 percent of the population will wind up getting this virus. "There's not going to be chaos, there's not going to be anarchy". "The toilet paper is going to be there tomorrow", he quipped.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said around 1 250 people, or 18% of the total number of infected patients in the state, were hospitalised. "The more tests you take, the more positives you will find".
"The only strategy available to us to limit the increase in cases.is to mitigate the spread of coronavirus in the most robust manner possible", he said. Worldwide, more than 13,400 have died.
