People leaving NYC metro area urged to self-quarantine for 14 days

Where it stands: There are at least 14,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in New York City and least 131 people have died, with more than 50 deaths located throughout the rest of the state.

Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House's coronavirus task force, made the recommendation during a press conference as cases in NY continue to increase rapidly.

About 56 percent of all the cases in the US are coming out of the NY metro area, she added. "So if they're already four days out, it's just ten more days".

The USNS Comfort - a floating hospital with almost 1,000 hospital beds - will arrive in NY "in a few short weeks", Vice President Mike Pence said. "Everybody who was in NY should be self-quarantining for the next 14 days to ensure that the virus doesn't spread to others".

Of those, 14,904 cases are in New York City. "We're not going to accept a premise that human life is disposable", he said. NY is set to start treating coronavirus patients with two new therapies that experts believe could prove promising, Gov.

After coronavirus task force member Dr. Deborah Birx first brought up the guidance, Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledged that NY has "suffered terribly" from the outbreak and said that self-isolating for two weeks will be "very important" because the administration doesn't want that to be "another seeding point" for the rest of the country. He asked anyone who had visited New York, New Jersey and CT over the past three weeks to self-isolate.

A New York Times analysis found that New York City had almost 25 times as many cases as Los Angeles, leading many to cite the greater density of the city as the cause for the disparity.

It is estimated that about one out of every 1,000 residents in NY is infected - a rate that is eight to 10 times higher than other areas.

More than half of confirmed cases in the USA are coming out of the NY metro area.
