Mayor de Blasio's press briefing has ended.

Now time for @NYGovCuomo's, which you can watch here. Only faintly somber hold music by tweet-time. 

Cuomo press briefing begins.

"This is one of the most challenging times that this state has faced in modern history... a lot of questions, a lot of anxiety, a lot of opinions out there."

He says let's start with facts: Hospitalizations down in the state.

Cuomo adds that there were 600 new Covid-19 cases yesterday in New York.

Though the numbers have been dropping from last month, 232 New Yorkers died yesterday, Cuomo says.

Cuomo adds that we are not yet fully documenting all of the at-home deaths, and so the reality is likely to be even worse.

Cuomo says that the question is not whether to re-open, but how to do so, grounding it on facts and data rather than emotion and politics.
