By Melanie Schuman and Sheena Jones, CNN

(CNN) Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during a news conference Saturday that New York is sending 1 million N95 respirator masks to New York City as Covid-19 confirmed cases have surpassed 10,300 across the state.

“One million masks won’t get us through the crisis, but it will make a significant contribution to New York City’s mask issue,” Cuomo said. A number of apparel companies in New York are converting to mask manufacturers, and Cuomo said he is exploring the state also manufacturing masks.

Cuomo announced that there are 10,356 confirmed Covid-19 cases across New York. There are 3,254 new cases across New York state, Cuomo said, with at least 1,803 new cases in New York City alone for a combined total of 6,211.

Fifty-four percent of New York State cases are of people between 18 and 49 years old.

At least 45,000 people have been tested for Covid-19, and about 15% of those cases are being hospitalized. “The more tests you take, the more positives you find,” Cuomo said.
