4,533 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide

937 Patients in the ICU; 591 Intubated

Statewide Positivity Rate is 4.33%

47 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 should be proud of the progress they've made, but we are still in a footrace between the infection and vaccine rate," Governor Cuomo said. "The numbers are the result of our actions. And while we all know the toll the pandemic has taken, we cannot get complacent now. It is up to New Yorkers to continue practicing the guidelines we know work in combating this virus: washing your hands, social distancing and wearing a mask. The light at the end of the tunnel is brighter than ever, but we must continue being New York Tough so we can all reach it together."

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 - 132,864
  • Total Positive - 5,748
