The number of people who have the novel coronavirus in New York state has doubled to 22 following an increase in testing, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday, as Tennessee became the 14th U.S. state to report a case of the fast-spreading illness.

“The number will continue to go up,” Cuomo told a news conference. “The more you test the higher number you will have.”

The latest New York cases include 8 more connected to the Manhattan lawyer who lives in suburban Westchester County and had been previously diagnosed, two in New York City and one on Long Island.
