Mayor Bill de Blasio warned residents of New York City on Tuesday afternoon within 48 hours.

“It’s definitely a possibility at this point,” said the mayor at City Hall press conference, in which he acknowledged that the move should be coordinated with state officials.

Mr de Blasio did not specify what the command would look like in New York City, but the same directive in the California Bay Area except for essential activities.

“This is a crisis that is growing fast. In my view, I think the correct guidance to provide all New Yorkers is, although a decision has not been made by the city or by the state, I think New York should be prepared now for the possibility of ‘shelter in place’ order. This has not happened. But it was obvious possibility at this point. I believe the decision to be made within 48 hours. And it’s a decision that is very, very difficult. I want to emphasize that – difficult anywhere in the United States. It is very difficult in a city with such a large population, so populous together. But I think the point has come where the decision was to be made. We will communicate closely with the state. Obviously, it’s a decision we wanted to make something in common. And I think it was right to let people know that there is that possibility. At this hour, the number of confirmed cases in New York City was 814. The sad fact of the predictions I made last week that we would hit 1,000 cases this week will obviously be a reality. And I’m very sorry to say that. Borough details as to this point: 248 cases in Queens, Manhattan 277 cases, 157 cases in Brooklyn, 96 cases in 36 cases in the Bronx and Staten Island. Again, very sorry to say we have lost seven of his fellow citizens of New York for the coronavirus.

The mayor said that the order could restrict movement in the city for people with important jobs such as police, firefighters and health care workers. It can also allow people to go outside to exercise, though he noted that Italy has enacted measures more stringent.

Not long after the mayor made a comment, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo compacted suggestion that the shelter-in-place to be imminent.

“Every quarantine blanket or shelter in place policy would require state action and as the governor said, there is no consideration that for every region now,” Melissa DeRosa, top aide Mr. Cuomo said in a statement.

Calling all NY1 cable channel later in the day, Mr. Cuomo asserted that position.

“There will not be any quarantine, where we contain people in an area, or we block people from the area,” he said. “Mobility of individuals is what we are all about. There will not be you-need-to-stay-at-home rules. “

Mr de Blasio also said on Tuesday that the city will be able to test 5,000 people per day for the coronavirus, a large increase from the current capacity of several hundred people per day. And he says that the alternate-side parking rules will be suspended for at least a week.

On Tuesday, more than 1,500 people in New York State have been tested positive for the virus, up from 950 the day before; 814 cases were in the city, including that of a New York Police Department officer assigned to the First Precinct in Lower Manhattan. (Seventeen officer who may have contact with officers who are in self-quarantine.)

Fifteen people have died from the virus in New York State, including at least 10 in New York City.

“We’re certainly going to have thousands of cases next week,” said Mr. de Blasio. “It is not that long before we hit the 10,000 cases, it is a true statement.”

The number of cases in New Jersey rose to 267 on Tuesday, up from 178 on Monday, with three deaths. In Connecticut, the number reached 68 confirmed cases, up from 41 on Monday.

The other part of the system has experienced a drop at a steep during the Tuesday morning rush hour compared to the same day last year: 90 percent on the Metro-North Railroad, which serves people north of New York City, and 67 percent The Long Island Rail Road.

“M.T.A. The now facing financial disaster, “Patrick J. Foye, chairman of the transit authority, said in the letter.

New York University asked students to vacate their dormitories by Wednesday, on occasion they may be required as a hospital emergency room.

Marc Wais, senior vice president for student affairs, student said in an email on Tuesday that the university has “institutional responsibility” for assistance if the outbreak worsens.

“There is a significant indication that the state, as part of its contingency planning, is viewed as the setting for a university dorm beds overflow from hospitals grapple with the potential number struck ill patients,” said Mr. Wais.

A spokesman for the university said th in the country have contacted university officials and that “contingency planning they seem to take into account the presence of potentially empty student sleeping space for coronavirus- related needs.”

Mr Cuomo that the “best hope” to address a potential shortage of hospital beds is to modify existing facilities such as military bases or a college dorm.

New York University also has affiliated hospitals, NYU Langone Medical Center, the nurses and doctors could require overnight lodging if they are pressed into service during the crisis.

Mr Wais indicates that many students did not heed previous calls to leave their hostel. “Overall, this is the opposite of what we need,” he said.
