Over 50 Coronavirus Cases Traced Back to One New York Attorney
(CNN) New York officials traced more than 50 coronavirus cases back to one attorney. In one small suburb on the outskirts of New York City, coronavirus cases jumped from one to more than 100 in less than 10 days.
Now the state's governor is trying to catch up to the virus by setting up a containment area around New Rochelle and deploying the National Guard to assist with food deliveries and clean public spaces. "We'll go in, we'll clean the schools and assess the situation," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. "This will be a period of disruption for the community."
New Rochelle is about 25 miles outside of New York City.
The issue, the governor says, is "a matter of life and death." And it started with one resident.
