Public health officials say the pandemic has killed more than 730 people in the United States and infected more than 53,000.

Citing efforts in Westchester, which at one point was one of the biggest COVID-19 clusters at the dawn of the outbreak, Cuomo said that the efforts the state has been making may be working slowly, but surely.

As of this afternoon, according to the New York Times case tracker, the United States reported at least 52,215 cases, including 675 deaths.

Cuomo said the American people would choose public health over the economy.

"People will say that some of (the restrictions) in place are a burden, and ye, they are burdensome", Cuomo said.

In Louisiana, Governor John Bel Edwards said he was seeking a major disaster declaration for his state by FEMA. "The new projection suggests that the number of hospital beds needed could be as high as 140,000", Cuomo said during a briefing at the Javits Convention Center on Tuesday, where the Army Corps of Engineers has commenced the building of a field hospital. Health officials warned that COVID-19-related casualty figures in NY are expected to jump significantly in the coming days.

"Let's try this again, @realdonaldtrump: Hospitals are already running out of ventilators and beds".

Priorities USA, a political action committee that's backed Democratic candidates, paid $6 million to run the ad in Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, The Hill reported. "Well, in case there's any doubt in your minds, I'm not willing to sacrifice anyone", Pritzker said.

Utility rate increases that were to go into effect on April 1 have been postponed. We closed schools, closed gatherings, brought in testing and we've dramatically slowed the increase.

"This is a real call to every person in New York City in the New York metro area to continue to follow the White House social distancing guidelines", she said.

Ford said it would partner with GE Healthcare to a produce hundreds of thousands of ventilators between now and June. And: "You pick the 26,000 people who are going to die".

A rapid reopening of the economy might backfire, however, with a rise in the death toll and people fearful of going out, according to investors anxious about the uncertain trajectory of the coronavirus and its economic toll.

"There are two different types of facilities [at the Javits Center]", Cuomo said during Tuesday's press conference.

"Markets will react badly because they have learned that this approach doesn't work", said Axel Merk, chief investment officer of Merk Investments.

"Right now, we have enough protective equipment, gloves, masks, gowns for all the hospitals statewide that are dealing with it", Gov. Cuomo said, referring to the coronavirus outbreak.

Negotiators in the US Senate said they could pass the US$2 trillion (RM8.86 trillion) stimulus Bill, which includes financial aid for ordinary Americans, small businesses and critically affected industries, as soon as Tuesday.
