Town has ‘particular problem’ with coronavirus

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he is sending the National Guard to bolster the coronavirus response in a hard-hit suburb north of New York City, signaling a new front in the domestic response.

Guard members will work in a containment circle around a key area of transmission in New Rochelle, where 100 cases have been diagnosed. They will be delivering food to homes and cleaning public spaces as scientists try to figure out how long the virus can live on hard surfaces.

“New Rochelle is a particular problem,” said Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat. “The numbers are going up unabated, and we do need a special public health strategy for New Rochelle.”
