New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Monday that recent data on the novel coronavirus including hospitalizations and deaths suggest the crisis now hitting the state may be hitting a plateau.

“The possible flattening of the curve is better than the increases we have seen,” Cuomo said. “New York is still far and away the most impacted state.”

Cuomo also told a news briefing that he was extending an order to keep non-essential businesses and schools for two more weeks, until April 29.

He also said he was doubling to $1,000 the maximum fine for violating the state’s strict social distancing rules.

“It’s not about your life,” Cuomo said at a press conference in Albany. “You don’t have the right to risk someone else’s life.”
