Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

 

"New York State continues to closely monitor alarming COVID-19 numbers throughout the nation as we flatten the curve, slow the spread and proceed with a data-driven, phased reopening," Governor Cuomo said. "So much of our ability to fight this destructive virus is dependent on what each of us does in day-to-day life, and social distancing, wearing masks and washing hands make a huge difference as we stay New York Smart. I ask New Yorkers to continue practicing those good habits and closely following state guidance, and I urge local governments to enforce that guidance."

 

Today's data is summarized briefly below:

 

  • Patient Hospitalization - 576 (-10)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 89
  • Hospital Counties - 30
  • Number ICU - 140 (-2)
  • Number ICU with Intubation - 70 (-2)
  • Total Discharges - 73,055 (+82)
