Intubations Drop to 530—New Low Since December 8, 49% Decline from Post-Holiday Peak

Statewide Positivity Rate is 3.52%

64 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. ICU patients dropped to 877, a new low since December 6 and a 46 percent decline from the post-holiday peak. Intubations dropped to 530, a new low since December 8 and a 49 percent decline from the post-holiday peak.

"The vaccine is the weapon that will win the war, and each day more New Yorkers are getting vaccinated for COVID-19. However, the infection rate also depends on what we do, and New Yorkers should continue staying safe and protecting one another as the virus continues to spread in our state," Governor Cuomo said. "Simple behaviors like wearing a mask, washing hands and social distancing can have outsize impact, especially when communities make the collective decision to follow the rules. Our vast distribution network is at the ready to ramp up vaccinations, but we still have a long way to go before defeating COVID-19 and ending the pandemic once and for all."
