Mr de Blasio made an emotional plea for the American military to be mobilised to prevent the disease from overwhelming the city and the country. "It's moving so fast right now, that I can't even say that anymore", de Blasio said.

"I strongly believe they all should be released", de Blasio said during a press briefing.

President Donald Trump noted on Twitter that 400 ventilators had been sent to New York City, and de Blasio said he appreciates that the president understands how crucial the equipment is.

De Blasio closed the city's more than 1,700 schools, which serve 1.1 million students, starting on Monday of last week and said the city would make a first attempt to reopen them on April 20.

NY state has been the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in the United States, with more than 15,000 positive cases as of Sunday afternoon.

Cuomo said Monday the state has obtained more respirator masks for health care workers. "We want to identify anyone in those categories and get them released immediately".

Critics also expressed concern that many of New York City's school children depend on their schools for food, and remote learning is impossible for the many students who do not have internet at home. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that has created a frantic competition among states to purchase needed supplies.
