4,715 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide

903 Patients in the ICU; 523 Intubated

Statewide Positivity Rate is 4.28%

61 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.

"New Yorkers have shown time and again the strength and discipline it takes to fight COVID, but there's more work to be done before we reach the light at the end of the tunnel. We're working 24/7 to vaccinate as many New Yorkers as possible, and while those efforts are bearing fruit, we need everyone to keep up the vigilance," Governor Cuomo said. "We're expanding eligibility and opening more vaccine sites around the state but the new variants are a concern. I urge New Yorkers to continue wearing masks, socially distancing and following the public health guidance as we work to defeat the COVID beast for good."

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 - 151,437
  • Total Positive - 6,488
  • Percent Positive - 4.28%
  • Patient Hospitalization - 4,715 (+140)
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive - 3.43%
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 513

  • Number ICU - 903 (+13)
