Gov. Cuomo approached the country to lift up New York on Monday, as the state's coronavirus loss of life moved over 1,200, with 253 casualties in the previous 24 hours alone.
Cuomo announced the dreary numbers during a preparation at Midtown's Javits Center, which is being changed into a field emergency clinic in the midst of a startling uptick in COVID-19 cases.
"This is a dangerous, major circumstance," Cuomo said in the wake of affirming 1,218 coronavirus passings in New York, representing almost 50% of all fatalities in the U.S. "The infection doesn't separate. It assaults everybody and all over."
The representative included, "This is a war."
New York City has been hit the worst, with 790 deaths and 36,221 confirmed cases as of Monday morning, according to officials.
Statewide, Cuomo said 66,497 New Yorkers have tested positive. More than 9,500 people are currently hospitalized, with 2,352 in intensive care, he added.
