"We do have an issue with young people who are not complying," Cuomo said, warning those who might not be concerned about the virus because they are younger than 60, the initial risk group identified by authorities.

"You can get the virus, and you can hurt people," he said, following up previous comments arguing that is "unintelligent and reckless" for young people to be going out and partying during the coronavirus pandemic.
