‘My brother Chris is positive for coronavirus. He is going to be fine, he’s young and in good shape, strong, not as strong as he thinks, but he will be fine,’ Gov Andrew Cuomo said.

Gov Cuomo said the part of New York’s stay-at-home order specifically to protect people over 70 – known as Matilda’s Law – is named after their mother.
