18 COVID-19 Deaths Statewide Yesterday

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the statewide 7-day average COVID-19 positivity rate dropped to 0.71 percent yesterday, a new record low.

"New York State is beating back COVID and making progress on the numbers, and the key is providing shots in arms for all New Yorkers. Hospitalizations and the positivity rate are declining, but so is the vaccination rate, and we need to get creative to encourage the remaining New Yorkers to take the shot," Governor Cuomo said. "We're providing new and innovative incentives— including park passes, transportation tickets, and even a $5 million lottery — to make sure we can successfully vaccinate the population. It's absolutely critical for us to rebuild our state, reopen our economy and put New Yorkers back to work, so I urge everyone who has not taken the shot to get vaccinated today."
