Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Saturday declared a state of emergency in New York as officials seek to combat the spreading coronavirus.
Officials have reported 76 cases of coronavirus in New York, including 10 people who are currently hospitalized, the governor said.
New York has commissioned “hundreds” of tests for coronavirus and plans to push for many more, Cuomo said.
“I would test as many people as you can test, because you want to know,” he said.
New York had previously reported 44 cases of coronavirus as of Friday.
