After saying he was considering a 'quarantine' of the New York metro area, President Donald Trump instead opted Saturday night to issue a travel advisory. The Centers for Disease Control urged New York, Connecticut and New Jersey resident to forgo "nonessential domestic travel for 14 days" after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the president's initial proposal "a declaration of war on states."
How bad have things gotten? Within the city limits, a record 222 people died in 24 hours ending Saturday at 4 p.m., bringing the total to 672 among some 30,000 infections — a fourth of confirmed U.S. cases.
