"I think somehow in Washington, there s an assumption (that) there s weeks to prepare", de Blasio said on MSNBC.

Doctors and nurses, many lacking adequate supplies of medical-grade face masks and other protective gear, were already confronting an onslaught from Covid-19, the respiratory illness caused by the highly contagious coronavirus.

The Sept. 11 attacks killed almost 3,000 people, a lot of them at New York City s World Trade Center. "Highest single increase in the number of deaths since we started", Cuomo said.

The mayor also said that he spoke with the Trump administration about the need for a national registry of medical personnel who could be deployed to the front lines of the COVID-19 fight.

The less fancy the face covering, the better, said Dr. Oxiris Barbot, commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the news outlet reported.

"If that is not done in the coming days, you're going to see people die who did not need to die, not just in NY, but in many parts of this country".

NY state recorded 2935 fatalities over 24 hours, up from 2373 a day earlier, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Friday. A few hours later, he had intubated two others.

"Personally, it's hard to go through this all day, and then it's hard to stay up all night watching those numbers come in. and know that you're in charge of the ship at this time", Cuomo said.

The city has suffered more than a quarter of USA deaths in the outbreak.

The disease and death tolls in the USA continued to grow on Friday with daily tallies bringing the overall figures to 277,953 cases and 7,152 fatalities, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. "Our new reality is unreal", Craig Spencer, the director of global health in emergency medicine at New York's Columbia University medical centre, wrote on Twitter on Thursday night. "I'm not going to let people die".

In New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy ordered that all flags be lowered to half-staff for as long as the emergency remains in effect to honour those lost to the coronavirus.

New statistics on Friday confirmed that hundreds of thousands of Americans had lost their jobs because of the pandemic, although economists say the real figure is far more than that because huge swathes of the USA economy began shutting down last month to avoid spreading the virus.
