“New York City is definitely a hot spot.”
The White House said Tuesday that New York City was the most critical area affected by the coronavirus outbreak and that people leaving the area should self-quarantine.
“New York City is definitely a hot spot,” Trump said.
President Donald Trump, Vice President Pence, Dr. Deborah Birx, and Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared in the White House briefing room on Tuesday evening to discuss the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.
“It’s a very serious situation, Dr. Fauci said. “They’ve suffered terribly through no fault of their own.”
New York residents have been leaving for Florida, North Carolina, and Long Island to escape the disease, prompting officials to express concerns about spread.
