New COVID-19 cases in New York coming from people leaving home, Cuomo says

0 22

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday the state’s new confirmed COVID-19 cases are predominantly coming from people who left their homes to go shop, exercise or socialize and not from essential workers.

“That person got infected and went to the hospital or that person got infected and went home and infected the other people at home,” he said during his daily news conference on the coronavirus.

“That was exactly wrong,” he said. “The infection rate among essential workers is lower than the general population and those new cases are coming predominantly from people who are not working and they are at home.”
