In his morning briefing Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that with the pandemic past its peak in the state, authorities are trying to figure out how gradual the descent in cases will be, the New York Times reports.

While a test can be 99 percent accurate in it specificity, meaning scientists know roughly how numerous tests were accurate as a percentage, sensitivity is more hard to nail down and that is finding which of the tests were accurate and which were not.

The head of the union representing the city's paramedics and EMTs - the emergency responders who often are the first to treat COVID-19 patients and transport them to the hospital - welcomed Cuomo's call.

"During this time, Americans must maintain strict vigilance and continue to practice careful hygiene, social distancing and the other protective measures that we have outlined", Trump said.

Its goal is to determine what percentage of the population has recovered from the virus and can return to work. "So everything is closed unless we say otherwise". "This will be the first true snapshot of what we're dealing with". Cuomo added. "Nobody knows". "Nobody", Cuomo said Monday.

"And if this trend holds, we are past the high point and all indications at this point are that we are on a descent", stated the governor.
