32 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Among today's numbers, the positivity rate in New York City yesterday was 1.72 percent, the lowest since November 4, and the City's 7-day average positivity rate fell to 2.04 percent, the lowest since November 9. There were 1,521 hospitalizations in New York City yesterday, the lowest since December 7.
"New Yorkers have done a tremendous job at beating back COVID and as a result of their hard work, we have been able to re-open more and more facets of our economy," Governor Cuomo said. "While this is all good news, we are not yet out of the woods and still have work to do in order to defeat this beast. New York continues to expand vaccine access and availability across the state, and it's now on all of us to do our part by getting vaccinated and practicing the behaviors we all know will keep us safe. We've come a long way and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but at this moment, it's critical we do not get complacent and risk losing any of the positive momentum we've gained."
