A day after he declared a state of emergency, Governor Cuomo announced the number of coronavirus cases in the state has increased to 105.
Cuomo Sunday said efforts continue "to contain the spread of the virus" that causes COVID-19.
The governor revealed Ulster and Suffolk counties now each have one confirmed case of coronavirus. Westchester County has 82 cases and New York City has 12. Multiple cases also have been reported in Saratoga, Rockland and Nassau counties.
According to the Broome County Health Department, no coronavirus cases have been confirmed in the county.
