New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is giving an update Thursday on the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The governor that more than 83,000 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in the state – more than the number reported in China, where the outbreak originated.
Cuomo said he is frightened for his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, who has tested positive for the virus. He said his brother’s positive test shows that anyone can get it.
