Coronavirus in the US: Donald Trump rules out declaring quarantine in New York despite the increase in infections

Despite tens of thousands of confirmed infections with covid-19, United States President Donald Trump said it "will not be necessary" to quarantine New York State.

This was announced by the president on Saturday, who added that the decision was made after consulting the special White House working group on the coronavirus.

Coronavirus in the US: Donald Trump rules out declaring quarantine in New York despite the increase in infections

The option to declare a quarantine in the state of the country with the largest number of people affected by pandemic disease was one of the options announced by Trump in recent days.
As of March 28, more than 52,000 confirmed cases were reported in New York.
The state has about half of the total number of people affected by covid-19 in the entire United States.
The North American country, since March 26, is the region with the highest number of contagion confirmations.

Trump tweeted that instead of quarantine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will issue a "strong travel warning" for New York and its neighbors New Jersey and Connecticut.
The CDC immediately released a statement urging residents of those three states to "refrain" from all non-essential domestic travel for the next 14 days.
The agency said the notice did not apply to "critical infrastructure" service providers, including health professionals and food providers.
Previously, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had claimed that quarantining New York State would be "absurd" and "anti-American."
"Then we would be Wuhan, China, and that wouldn't make any sense," he told CNN earlier in the week, adding that such a restriction would cause a stock market crash that would make it impossible for the US economy to recover for years.
