NY governor sounds alarm over 'astronomical' coronavirus numbers
NEW YORK, 24 March. - (ANA) - New York's governor warned of "troubling and astronomical numbers" in the rate of coronavirus infections in the state, saying they were doubling every three days.
Andrew Cuomo said the virus could now peak in one of the country's most populous states in as few as two weeks, with some 40,000 people needing intensive care - numbers that could severely stress under-equipped hospitals that currently have only 3,000 intensive care unit beds. - (ANA) -
