During his daily briefing, the governor also revealed that confirmed cases in state had increased to 75,795 as of March 31, after 9,298 new cases emerged.

His brother, CNN journalist Chris Cuomo, also tested positive for the deadly virus, Cuomo told reporters.

He also said that FEMA was the reason for the increasing cost of critical ventilators, which all 50 states and the Federal government were buying from China.

Cuomo said New York state bought 17,000 of these respiratory machines which are vital for the surge in COVID-19 patients.

However, he said there was now a bidding war going on between New York, all the other states and FEMA.
