As the coronavirus outbreak continues to worsen in the state of New York, President Trump told the press that he’s considering a short-term quarantine for the state, as well as New Jersey and parts of Connecticut.

“We’re thinking about certain things. Some people would like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hot spot.

The president later tweeted about the idea.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who was holding a press briefing at the time of the president’s off-the-cuff announcement, said that he has not heard that the president had such a plan despite speaking with him just this morning.
