New York City lockdown extended till June 13: governor


NEW YORK, May 15, 2020 (BSS/AFP) – Lockdown measures in New York City have
been extended until June 13 under an executive order signed by state Governor
Andrew Cuomo.

Stay at home orders will be eased for the state’s five least populated
regions, however, allowing businesses there to get back to work gradually.

New York City is the US epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic with more
than 20,000 people dead.

Cuomo signed the order Thursday night. Statewide lockdown orders had been
due to expire Friday.
