4,575 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide

890 Patients in the ICU; 521 Intubated

Statewide Positivity Rate is 4.13%

57 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 continues to rear its ugly head across New York State, and while hospitalization and vaccination metrics continue to trend in the right direction, this pandemic isn't done with us yet," Governor Cuomo said. "The vaccine is here and New York State is working 24/7 and pulling out all the stops to get shots in arms, including expanding eligibility and establishing new vaccination sites. But in the meantime, washing hands, wearing masks and socially distancing are critical behaviors that can help us slow the spread as we continue to fight the COVID beast."

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 - 184,530
  • Total Positive - 7,622
  • Percent Positive - 4.13%
  • Patient Hospitalization - 4,575 (+46)
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive - 3.46%
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 486
  • Hospital Counties - 50
  • Number ICU - 890 (+13)
  • Number ICU with Intubation - 521 (-9)
  • Total Discharges - 160,868 (+406)
  • Deaths - 57
  • Total Deaths - 40,390
