NY Gov. Cuomo compares 9/11 to 'silent explosion' of COVID-19

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said it's "shocking and painful and breathtaking" that 2,753 lives were lost at the World Trade Center on 9/11 but the coronavirus crisis has killed 7,067 deaths in the state so far.

Referring to the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said, "9/11 was supposed to be the darkest day in New York for a generation." The governor said the coronavirus outbreak was "a silent explosion that just ripples through society with the same randomness, the same evil that we saw on 9/11." New York saw a sharp drop in the number of people newly admitted to hospitals in the past 24 hours to the lowest level in the coronavirus crisis, a sign that social distancing steps are working, Cuomo said.

The number of deaths increased to 799 on April 8, up from 779 a day earlier and a record high for a third day.
