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 continues to make progress fighting COVID-19 through a smart, data-driven approach and the thoughtful actions of everyday citizens, who've been practicing social distancing, mask wearing and hand washing," Governor Cuomo said. "But the surge in new cases and hospitalizations throughout the country - and the potential for those people to bring the virus into New York - combined with the complacency we've seen in parts of our own state is a potentially deadly mix. We need to stay vigilant and smart so we don't go back to the hell we experienced just two months ago. We are not out of the woods yet."

 

Today's data is summarized briefly below:

 

  • Patient Hospitalization - 851 (+10)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 79 (-5)
  • Hospital Counties - 33
  • Number ICU - 173 (+7)
  • Number ICU with Intubation - 98 (+1)
  • Total Discharges - 71,279 (+94)
  • Deaths - 8
  • Total Deaths - 24,959
