8,831 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide

1,544 Patients in the ICU; 1,006 Intubated

Statewide Positivity Rate is 6.79%

162 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.

"We're charging ahead and making progress in the footrace between administering vaccinations and reducing the infection rate, but to ultimately be successful in winning this war, we need two things - greater supply of the vaccine and the continued buy-in of New Yorkers practicing safe behaviors," Governor Cuomo said. "New York has already established one of the nation's most expansive vaccination operations and we are ready to administer more than 100,000 vaccinations a day, but we need more supply. With competent leadership now in Washington, I believe the supply will increase, but in the meantime, it's all the moreimportant for every New Yorker to do their part in reducing the spread. We've seen good news lately in the form of declining positivity rates and hospitalizations, but we know that weekend numbers can be erratic, so we cannot become complacent."

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.

Today's data is summarized briefly below:

  • Test Results Reported - 162,938
  • Total Positive - 11,064
  • Percent Positive - 6.79%
  • Patient Hospitalization - 8,831 (+101)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 826
  • Hospital Counties - 57
  • Number ICU - 1,544 (+22)
  • Number ICU with Intubation - 1,006 (+1)
  • Total Discharges - 123,094 (+550)

  • Total Deaths - 34,407
