WH Urges People Who Left NY Recently To Self-Quarantine

President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr listens as Dr. Deborah Birx White House coronavirus response coordinator speaks about the coronavirus in the James Brady Briefing Room Monday

With more than half of the nation's 44,000 cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the epicenter of the pandemic, the New York City metro area, people leaving from there are now being advised by the government to self-quarantine for 14 days wherever they go.

"To everyone in New York: You are in a very hard place and if any city should be adhering to the presidential guidelines, your governor and mayor, it's New York and the New York metro area right now", she said.

The White House did not list the specific counties covered but the traditional definition of the NYC metro area is the five boroughs, Long Island, and the lower and mid Hudson Valley, northern New Jersey and Fairfield County.

"New York City is definitely a hot spot", Trump said.

Where it stands: There are at least 14,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in New York City and least 131 people have died, with more than 50 deaths located throughout the rest of the state. More than 12,300 of those cases were in New York City.

NY has become the epicenter of coronavirus in America.

Similar massive falls in the so-called Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) were also largely ignored by investors in other countries. The New York Fed will lend to a "special objective vehicle", which will then buy bonds and issue loans to companies.

The warning against traveling outside of the region - and self-isolating if a person does - by the coronavirus task force comes a day after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ordering anyone arriving on a flight from the NY region to submit to self-quarantine for two weeks.

New York is now at 31 per cent mortality across more than 3,000 hospitalisations, according to data from Birx and New York Governor Cuomo.

"No matter where they have gone, whether it's Florida, North Carolina, or out to the far reaches of Long Island, we are starting to see new cases across Long Island that suggests people have left the city", Birx told reporters. "As in all places, they have to be following the presidential guildelines".

With New York City quickly becoming a new Covid-19 hotspot, the White House coronavirus task force is urging all New Yorkers who may have left the city for elsewhere to self-quarantine as they might have been exposed.

"What the president is doing is looking for the future and looking at what we can do in the future - not looking [to] change what we're doing now", Dr. Birx said.

"This is the most drastic action we can take", Cuomo said.
