Governor Andrew Cuomo slams CDC and Trump over coronavirus test delays as New York cases jump to 105

March 08, 2020

At a press conference on Sunday morning, Cuomo announced that the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in New York had jumped from 89 to 105 overnight after new test results came in. The governor said that officials are working hard to identify new cases but have been greatly hindered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), saying it is ‘outrageous and ludicrous’ that the agency has not authorized private labs to conduct automated tests.
