"We have a case in Westchester, a 50-year-old gentleman who did not travel to any of the places that are on the quote on quote' watch list, did travel to Miami, but that is not a place that we have known that there’s any cluster of coronavirus.

Cuomo said state health authorities were going through the process of tracking down the man's possible connections to test whether others may have been infected.
The coronavirus has so far killed more than 3,100 people globally and infected nearly 91,000 others. While the US death toll itself was marginal, it has raised fears on what might happen if the virus becomes a pandemic within the country, just like in China.
