Coronavirus: New York Infection Rate Is 'Doubling About Every 3 Days,' Cuomo SaysNew York is fast becoming “the canary in the coal mine” for the U.S.'s coronavirus outbreak, Gov. Andrew Cuomo says. The state's cases are doubling every 3 days — and despite shelter-in-place orders, they still haven’t flattened the curve. 😞 Takes two to three weeks if we go by other countries experiences.
