In recent weeks, up to 800 people, a day died of the coronavirus. The number of patients admitted fell below 16,000.
Governor Cuomo further said he had a “productive” conversation with President Trump at the White House in Washington.
The two recently expressed strong criticism about how to deal with the corona crisis. For example, they argued over who is responsible for tests to diagnose an infection.
