Governor Andrew Cuomo slammed 'arrogant' New Yorkers for ignoring social distancing guidelines on Sunday as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the state surpassed 15,000.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Cuomo described his horror at visiting New York City on Saturday and seeing parks crowded with people who have been instructed to limit contact as much as possible.

'There is a density level in New York City that is wholly inappropriate,' the governor said.

'You would think there was nothing going on in parts of New York City. You would think it was just a bright sunny Saturday.

'I don't know what I'm saying that people don't get. I don't know what they're not understanding.

'This is not life as usual. None of this is life as usual.'

Cuomo warned that the COVID-19 outbreak is on pace to last nine months and said 80 percent of the state's 19 million residents could become infected.

Bill de Blasio said Sunday that if Donald Trump doesn't send more aid to New York City to combat coronavirus then 'people will die' of the disease who otherwise would have lived.

'The truth is, and New Yorkers and all Americans deserve the blunt truth, it's only getting worse,' de Blasio said in an interview on NBC News' Meet the Press Sunday morning. 'And, in fact, April and May are going to be a lot worse.' 'Right now, we are a third of the cases in the country - that's going to get worse. We're about two-thirds or more the cases in New York State - that's going to get worse,' The New York City mayor continued.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Sandinista-loving mayor has some nerve in slamming Trump while asking him for help after continually calling for Trump’s ouster during his failed presidential campaign. That’s called chutzpah.

New York governor is praised for his crisis response and is dubbed the 'real wartime president' over Donald Trump and fellow Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden

The hashtag #PresidentCuomo began trending on Twitter on Saturday as users praised Democrat Andrew Cuomo's 'presidential' demeanor in addressing the outbreak both within and outside his home state - which accounts for 11,705 of the more than 25,430 cases in the US.

Cuomo has been holding daily press briefings on coronavirus for the past several weeks as the case count in New York continued to climb.

The governor's direct messaging bears stark contrast to the often haphazard and hyperbolic messages coming from President Donald Trump, who has faced fierce criticism over his administration's handling of the crisis.

Meanwhile, current Democratic 2020 frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have struggled to secure airtime and subsequently faced criticism for their lack of input on the pandemic gripping the nation.
