58 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.

"While we have made incredible progress, COVID is not over and we must all continue to practice the guidelines we know stop this virus in its tracks," Governor Cuomo said. "The ability to win the footrace between the infection rates and the vaccine rates is dependent on the behavior of New Yorkers. We have shown ourselves and the nation once before just how New York Tough we all can be when we work together. Until the day this war is won, I encourage everyone to continue to wash their hands, wear a mask and socially distance. We are closer than ever to the light at the end of the tunnel."

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 - 131,436
  • Total Positive - 4,926
  • Percent Positive - 3.75%
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive - 3.20%
