Erie County Up to 87 Confirmed Cases
Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a press conference on Monday morning that Erie County is now up to 87 confirmed cases, and that number should rise as New York State ramps up its testing.
Per NBC New York, New York has the most cases of any state in the United States, with over 20,000 confirmed cases as of Monday morning. At least 157 people have died in New York State, which accounts for more than 1% of the global death toll. The vast majority of the New York State cases are concentrated in New York City.
Governor Cuomo stated in his press conference that resources would be applied wherever the need is greatest, as New York is all one state.
