New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Wednesday what he termed drastic but necessary steps to counter the coronavirus outbreak, including a further limitation on business staffing and the deployment of a hospital ship to be stationed in New York City.

The federal government's deployment of the USNS Comfort will mean there will be "literally a floating hospital" next to the city, as President Donald Trump assists the state to handle its crisis, Cuomo said.

Businesses in the state are to be placed under a "density reduction" mandate, Cuomo said, so that they would be required to operate with no more than 50% of their employees, sending others home to allow for social distancing and prevent the virus' spread.
