62 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. Hospitalizations dropped to 4,486, the first day below 4,500 since December 5 and a 52 percent decrease from the mid-January peak. ICU patients dropped to 927, a new low since December 7 and a 43 percent decrease since the mid-January peak. Intubations dropped to 619, a new low since December 21.

"The vaccine is the weapon that will win the war and is critical to stopping COVID in its tracks, but New Yorkers should also practice the safe behaviors that have made a huge difference in our ability to slow the spread," Governor Cuomo said. "We're opening new vaccination sites and getting shots in arms across the state, but we're going to need more supply to reach a bigger portion of the population. In the meantime, New Yorkers should wear masks, wash their hands and stay socially distanced. New York has come a long way in the footrace between the infection rate and the vaccination rate, and although we're making progress every day, we need New Yorkers to stay safe until we defeat the COVID beast."
