New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday forecasters are warning him that the spread of coronavirus is now looking like a “bullet train” as the number of confirmed cases in his state “is doubling about every three days.”
The grim outlook comes as New York is currently fighting 25,665 cases of COVID-19, which is 10 times the problem California and Washington state has.
“We have the most sophisticated people you can get doing projections on this,” he told reporters Tuesday from the sprawling Javits Center in Manhattan, which is being converted into a makeshift hospital. “And what they are now seeing is that the rate of cases, the rate of new infections is doubling about every three days. That is a dramatic increase in the rate of infection, and this whole discussion all along has been how fast does the rate of increase spread and can we slow the rate of increase.”
