Governor Cuomo Updates New Yorkers on State’s Progress During COVID-19 Pandemic – ny.gov

3 min read

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

 

“It’s been exactly one year since we first identified COVID in New York, and while we’ve made incredible progress towards defeating it, testing and vaccinating more and more New Yorkers, we need to stay vigilant,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our ongoing effort to get shots in arms is producing increasing numbers of sites where New Yorkers can get vaccinated, but we’re going to need more supply to reach enough residents to put a serious dent in the virus’ spread. It’s critical that New Yorkers continue to practice safe behaviors—washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing—while we’re still working to vaccinate a large portion of the population. This has been an incredibly long 365 days and there are more ahead, but New Yorkers have already shown unprecedented perseverance and toughness throughout this pandemic—now we just need to get to the light at the end of the tunnel.”

 

Today’s data is summarized briefly below: 

  • Test Results Reported – 174,158
  • Total Positive – 6,235
  • Percent Positive – 3.58%
  • Patient Hospitalization – 5,307 (+48)
  • Net Change Patient Hospitalization Past Week – -497 
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 528 
  • Hospital Counties – 53
  • Number ICU – 1,065 (-18)
  • Number ICU with Intubation – 741 (+13)
  • Total Discharges – 146,811 (+437)
  • Deaths – 80 
  • Total Deaths – 38,557

It is important to note that data, including test results and hospital rates, reported early in the week are often not completely reflective of the current situation due to lower discharges and testing volume over the weekend. Data trends over a period of time, such as using 7-day averages, are a preferred metric.
