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.

 

"I once again want to thank all New Yorkers for their extraordinary efforts. The spirit of community, the spirit of unity and the efforts they're making have literally saved thousands of lives. So the health that you're protecting is not just yours and your family's, but that of all New Yorkers," Governor Cuomo said. "And it's not just a question of rhetoric—it's reality. Only one New Yorker passed away, and we won't stop until that number is zero. But when you look at what's going on around the country and what's going on around the world, it's a really extraordinary accomplishment that New Yorkers have achieved and I congratulate them."
