Cuomo: 59,513 COVID-19 infections in NY State

The number of people infected with coronavirus in the New York State reached 59,513, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Sunday. The death toll from COVID-19 stood at 965 statewide while more than 172,000 people were tested for the infection, "by far the most in the country," the governor asserted.

Cuomo also claimed that the state will probably need to extend the suspension for non-essential workers for "at least two more weeks" in an attempt to curb the spreading of coronavirus.

Testing is key for "getting to the other side of the curve" of the pandemic, he added, urging hospitals to work together and apply "new mentality" in a fight against the COVID-19 outbreak.
