“You know what’s worse than the virus? The anxiety,” Mr. Cuomo said, noting that most patients would suffer mild or no symptoms.

The declaration of emergency will allow the state to speed up the purchasing of supplies and the hiring of workers to assist local health departments that have been handling the monitoring of thousands of self-quarantined patients, Mr. Cuomo said.

“Somebody has to go knock on their door, once a day,” he said. “This is labor intensive.”

The declaration would also allow officials to skirt purchasing regulations, if necessary, he said.

The total number of confirmed cases across the US is 312, and there have been 17 deaths as of Saturday.
