"In New York, we've been following the science and the data and the metrics from day one. We have the best numbers that we've had since this started today in New York," Governor Cuomo said. "Yesterday, we only had ten deaths, down from a high of 800. We have about 1,000 people in our hospitals, which is one of the lowest numbers we've had since this began. Because of the changes New Yorkers made, we now have the lowest transmission rate in the United States of America."
