New York Governor Andrew Cuomo urged all Americans to remain calm during the Coronavirus outbreak Thursday; saying scientists understand the “trajectory of the virus” and people need to “act on facts” not fear.
“We know how to deal with it. It’s not going to be easy, it’s not going to be pretty. We know the trajectory of the virus. Let’s just take a deep breath and act on facts as opposed to acting on fear. When you act on fear, then you’re in a dangerous place,” said Cuomo.
“This is a war; we have to treat it like a war. Here in New York we had 9/11 which basically immediately re-oriented us into a war scenario. In a war you need the federal government. The federal government is stepping up,” he added.
