New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned that reopening the state's economy too soon could have a devastating impact and could potentially erase any progress made.
The governor said while the number of cases is decreasing, state officials "have to be smart" about reopening businesses.
He warned: "All the progress we made is gone, and all experts, or virtually all experts, will say not only does the virus spread increase, but it increases to a higher point than we had increased the first time. Again, this is a remarkably effective virus at spreading and growing. So I know everyone is impatient. Let's just reopen. That's what happens if we just reopen."
