8,926 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide

1,492 Patients in the ICU; 909 Intubated

Statewide Positivity Rate is 7.73%

164 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.

"New York is continuing to fight COVID-19 across the state by increasing our testing capacity, ensuring the hospitals have enough space, and vaccinating New Yorkers as quickly as possible," Governor Cuomo said. "The numbers over the past two weeks suggest you could see a flattening after a spike from Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year. We said we would hope and aspire for a flattening in late January, and you could argue that you start to see a flattening now. Positivity in almost every region is down from the high during this holiday spike."

A post-Thanksgiving increase that grew through Christmas and the New Year and starting to flatten.
