Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said on Monday, for the first time, that he believed the most horrific phase of the coronavirus outbreak may have passed.
“I believe the worst is over if we continue to be smart,” Mr. Cuomo said at his daily briefing. “I believe we can start on the path to normalcy.”
"The worst can be over, and it is over, unless we do something reckless," he said. "And you can turn those numbers on two or three days of reckless behavior."
