75 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.

"COVID-19 is continuing to spread across the state, but progress on vaccinations and the numbers are turning the tables in our favor. The hard work, dedication and perseverance of New Yorkers is starting to pay off, and we need to double down on safe behaviors to get the state through to the light at the end of the tunnel," Governor Cuomo said. "Our vast vaccine distribution network continues to expand as we receive more supply and get more shots in arms, and we're working to get the vaccine to underserved communities across the state. New Yorkers should continue washing their hands, wearing masks and staying socially distanced so we can defeat the COVID beast together and look ahead to the future."

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.

  • Test Results Reported - 174,514
  • Total Positive - 6,850
  • Percent Positive - 3.93%
