At least 400 people across the United States died due to the novel coronavirus in the United States, another grim milestone as the country’s number of cases topped 32,000 on Sunday.

Almost half of the identified cases [15,168] were in New York State, where Governor Andrew Cuomo said Sunday morning that an estimated 40% to 80% of residents could get the coronavirus over the course of the pandemic.

"All we're trying to do is slow the spread, but it will spread. It is that contagious," he said, adding most people will overcome the illness unless they're older or have an underlying condition.

Meanwhile, there are at least 32,149 confirmed cases in the United States.

Millions of people in at least eight states face orders by their governors aimed at keeping them home to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.

Relatively, businesses deemed "essential" will be allowed to stay open, and restaurants will still be allowed to serve customers via takeout.

Each state provides for certain exceptions, such as visiting grocery stories, pharmacies or health care facilities, among others.

Numbers have soared as testing has become more available, and among the new cases was Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, according to his Twitter account.
