Regarding restrictions on private meetings, Cuomo added that COVID-19 outbreaks were often attributed to crowded indoor social gatherings.
"The delivery will be very rapid", Trump promised.
'We understand the logic behind micro-cluster restrictions, but at this time we have concerns about blanket statewide restrictions like this'.
Trump said the vaccine would be available in the spring for essentially the entire country, except for NY. "Why? Because I think they're skeptical about the professionalism of this federal government's health response".
Moncef Slaoui, one of the two leaders of Operation Warp Speed, elaborated on that promise.
"If the national numbers are going up, and the states around you are going up, be prepared", Cuomo said at the press conference.
"[Cuomo] doesn't trust where the vaccines are coming from", Trump fired.
But Cuomo on Wednesday issued an order for the entire state and said anyone who doesn't comply with it will receive a summons ordering them to shut down.
Pfizer announced this week that it found its vaccine 90 per cent effective in its trials.
Results from the trial of another vaccine developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca is expected soon and it may also be fast-tracked for FDA approval.
Cuomo said his administration has been in touch with the Biden transition team "on an ongoing basis" and he criticized President Donald Trump for not conceding the election and working with his successor.
Speaking earlier this week, leading immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci, who enjoys widespread trust from the American public, departed from his recent round of grim pronouncements to offer a similar note of hope.
"The cut back to our indoor hours will hurt our industry the most especially as the weather gets cold", said Nick Murphy, co-owner of Bar 43 in Sunnyside.
"Bars, restaurants, gyms, house parties - that's where it's coming from, primarily", he said. "I take that as a fact", Cuomo says.
"The bad news is we are in the midst of a sea of COVID rising around us", he said. "The reality is the virus is mobile and we're in the holiday season and people will travel more". "New York is a shop on the COVID tide".
'Our members have put in place procedures and protocols to mitigate the spread, and we'll continue to do so to ensure the safety of our employees and patrons, ' she said. "This administration will not be going to a lockdown".
