8,003 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide

1,500 Patients in the ICU; 987 Intubated

Statewide Positivity Rate is 4.86%

141 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 locked in a footrace between the spread of COVID and the vaccine's quick distribution, and New Yorkers should stay vigilant as we work to get more shots in arms," Governor Cuomo said. "We have a robust distribution network at the ready, but we need more doses to kick our vaccination effort into overdrive and reach more New Yorkers. New Yorkers should be commended for the hard work and discipline they've shown beating back COVID by practicing the basic daily behaviors that help us stop the virus in its tracks. The good news is the holiday spike is over and the experts say that we're on a downward trajectory—we just need to put in the work to keep it that way."

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 - 175,038
  • Total Positive - 8,508
  • Percent Positive - 4.86%
  • Patient Hospitalization - 8,003 (+27)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 730
  • Hospital Counties - 57
  • Number ICU - 1,500 (-34)
  • Number ICU with Intubation - 987 (-21)
  • Total Discharges - 128,354 (+556)
