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. The statewide 7-day average positivity rate dropped to 3.16 percent, the lowest in a month.

"We're making progress vaccinating more New Yorkers by expanding eligibility, opening new vaccination sites and getting doses to underserved communities across the state. However, COVID-19 is still spreading in New York and practicing safe behaviors will help us keep our fellow citizens safe," Governor Cuomo said. "New Yorkers should continue washing their hands, wearing masks and staying socially distanced as we work to defeat the COVID beast together. We're getting closer to the light at the end of the tunnel, but it will take residents' vigilance and perseverance to get us through this pandemic 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 - 128,912
  • Total Positive - 5,029
  • Percent Positive - 3.90%
