Cuomo last week rolled out new regulations to protect nursing home residents amid the pandemic, saying patients must test negative for COVID-19 before being readmitted to the facilities.

That's twice the national average.

Dr. Elizabeth Dufort administers a COVID-19 test on Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his briefing Sunday.

Cuomo says the state has the capacity to do even many more than 40,000 tests per day, "Many sites are not at full capacity in New York State. I'm not in discomfort", he said after the test.

As of May 14, more than 359,800 individuals had tested positive for coronavirus in NY state, with over 28,300 deaths caused by the new disease.

The state's budget director, Robert Mujica, said officials expect to learn a lot more about the genesis of new cases from contact tracing over the next week.

New York state, home to both bustling Manhattan and hilly woods and farmland that stretch hundreds of miles north to the Canadian border, has been the global epicenter of the pandemic, but rural areas have not been almost as badly affected as New York City, the country's biggest city at roughly 8.4 million people.

Cuomo also reminded New Yorkers in need of emotional support to call the New York State Emotional Support Hotline at 1-844-863-9314 to schedule a free appointment with a mental health professional.
