New York flags at half-mast to honour coronavirus dead

New York, the hardest-hit state in the US, on Wednesday flew flags at half-mast as the number of coronavirus-related deaths in a single day reached a record.

"Every number is a face, " said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. "This virus attacked the vulnerable and attacked the weak and it's our job as a society to protect the vulnerable."

The number of confirmed cases in New York state is now approaching 150,000.
