That is about 10 times as much as California and Washington states, Cuomo said, imploring federal authorities to prioritize resources, including vital medical equipment like ventilators, for his state.

Despite statewide efforts to combat the spread ofcoronavirus, the rate of new infections is doubling every three days, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "And it is accelerating on its own", Cuomo said.

If health professionals can figure out who those people are, it's possible they could be sent back to work sooner.
