"There are now 33 confirmed cases of #Coronavirus in NYS - 11 new positive tests since yesterday", Cuomo announced via Twitter on Friday. "As we do more tests, the number of positive cases will rise, as we are seeing".
All new cases have been traced to the same source, he added.
A new coronavirus disease — COVID-19 — was first detected in China's Hubei province in late December 2019, and has since spread worldwide. In late January, the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency in light of the outbreak.
