Cuomo closes NYC playgrounds, says more than 83,000 test positive

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday said he would be closing playgrounds in New York City since people in those spaces were continuing to violate social distancing guidelines. Open spaces in parks would remain open so that people could "walk around and get some sun," while keeping six feet apart, Cuomo said. 
Other announcements by Cuomo include:
  • New York hospitals would be working together to share equipment and staff, and even shift patients when need be. 
  • 83,172 people have tested positive for coronavirus, an increase of 7,917 statewide since Tuesday. More than 47,000 of those cases are in New York City. 
  • Nearly 400 more people have died in the state since the day before, bringing the toll to 1,941 deaths. 
  • The number of hospitalized people increased from 10,929 to 12,226. About 300 more people were in intensive care, but 1,167 were discharged. "Elisha Fieldstadt"
