A one-mile containment area is now in effect in New Rochelle, a city of nearly 80,000 people where more than 120 of New York’s 240 coronavirus cases have been reported.

The National Guard was seen handing out food and supplies to residents on Thursday morning as the containment efforts began.

The area will remain on lockdown for the next two weeks, affecting all ‘major gathering places’ including schools and places of worship.

The radius centers around the Temple Young Israel of New Rochelle synagogue that was attended by Manhattan attorney Lawrence Garbuz who has been linked to the outbreak in the area.

President Donald Trump addressed the containment zone at a press conference Thursday, saying: ‘You have see what they are doing in New Rochelle which is good, frankly. It’s the right thing.’

‘It’s not enforced, it’s not very strong, but people know they are being watched,’ he added.
