Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

"As New York continues to show progress combatting COVID-19 with low hospitalizations and a low rate of positive cases, we remain alarmed by spikes in much of the country and the risk of a lack of compliance at home as the state pursues a phased, data-driven reopening," Governor Cuomo said. "New Yorkers' vigilance, courage and adoption of basic behaviors—mask wearing, hand washing and social distancing—has driven our ability to control the virus, and we have to continue on that path to success. I urge everyone to stay New York Tough and New York Smart."

Today's data is summarized briefly below:

  • Patient Hospitalization - 743 (-22)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 65 (-6)
  • Hospital Counties - 31
  • Number ICU - 172 (-7)
  • Number ICU with Intubation - 100 (+2)
  • Total Discharges 72,064 - (+94)
  • Deaths - 11
  • Total Deaths - 25,035
