New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he's preparing for the reopening of his state as early as mid-May.
"We have about another week before we could open some regions of the state," Cuomo said Wednesday on "Cuomo Prime Time," hosted by his brother, CNN's Chris Cuomo.
"We do see regional variations. So we're responding to those, because there are different facts upstate than downstate, so we're responding to those, but we're not going to be pressured into it."
Cuomo said reopening will be based on facts and data, but more coronavirus testing is needed.
"We do need more testing and that is an open issue," he said.
"They have to come up to scale. You then have to put tracing in place, which is an enormous undertaking that's never been done before. That has to be put in place to gauge the reopening."
