March 8 (Reuters) - New York City could have 100 or more coronavirus cases within two to three weeks, up from 13 now, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Sunday.

“That pace is going to pick up due to community spread,” de Blasio told a news conference. “At some point, we could easily be hundreds of cases.” (Reporting by Nathan Layne in New York; Editing by Peter Cooney)
