TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_"There's no doubt that massive quarantine is the best way to slow the spread," Cuomo said Saturday, adding that 76 cases of the new virus have been reported in the state.
"Hundreds" of tests for Coronavirus have already been commissioned and the state is planning for more.
"I would test as many people as you can test because you want to know," he said.
Cuomo slammed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in part for not authorizing automatic testing, which he said would "exponentially increase the number of tests you can do."
"We now need the CDC to authorize automatic testing," said the Democratic governor. "It's one thing that you don't do anything to help us, but at least don't handcuff us, and that's where we are right now."
More than two dozen US states are already grappling with the novel Coronavirus with over 300 cases reported across the country.
