New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a dire warning to residents across the state Tuesday; saying the Coronavirus is “more dangerous than expected” with a 14% increase in just 24 hours.
“I’m tired of being behind this virus. We’ve been behind this virus from day one,” Cuomo said at a press conference in Albany. “We underestimated this virus. It’s more powerful, it’s more dangerous than we expected.”
“We’re the ones who are hit now. That’s today, but tomorrow it’s going to somewhere else, whether it’s Detroit, whether it’s New Orleans. It will work its way across the country,” the governor said.
Earlier this week, the US Navy Hospital Ship ‘Comfort’ arrived in New York Harbor to help combat the Coronavirus crisis.
“The USNS Comfort will provide roughly 1,000 hospital beds, and 1,200 personnel to New York, Cuomo said on Twitter. It will be used to treat patients who don’t have COVID-19 to free up other hospital rooms for coronavirus patients, the governor has previously said,” reports CNBC.
