Trump considers quarantine of New York
President Donald Trump said Saturday that he's considering a short-term quarantine of New York state, New Jersey, and parts of Connecticut, as cases of coronavirus continue to rise, CNN reports.
"We're thinking about certain things. Some people would like to see New York quarantined because it's a hotspot. ... We might not have to do it, but there's a possibility that sometime today we'll do a quarantine, short-term, two weeks in New York. Probably New Jersey, certain parts of Connecticut," he told reporters as he departed the White House.
"I'd rather not do it, but we may need it," the US President said.
