5,164 Patient Hospitalizations Statewide

994 Patients in the ICU; 539 Intubated

Statewide Positivity Rate is 5.15%

92 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.

"As we continue to see the number COVID-19 cases surge across the nation, it is beyond critical that we ensure hospitals, and hospital systems as a whole, have developed additional capacity and are prepared to work cooperatively with each other to prevent any one facility from becoming overwhelmed. With this work already underway through the state's Surge and Flex program, we also continue to fight to ensure the vaccine's distribution is as fair and equitable as possible," Governor Cuomo said. "The distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine will undoubtedly go down as one of the most massive governmental operations in history, yet the federal distribution plan remains misguided and completely overlooks underserved communities. If this distribution of the vaccine is to truly be successful, the federal government must improve its plan immediately and ensure black, brown, and low income communities are not left behind. The time is now to make these corrections, we simply cannot wait any longer."

Today's data is summarized briefly below:

  • Test Results Reported - 197,406
  • Positive Test Results - 10,178
  • Positivity - 5.15%
  • Patient Hospitalization - 5,164 (+171)

  • Number ICU with Intubation - 539 (+18)
  • Total Discharges - 89,600 (+511)
  • Deaths - 92
  • Total Deaths - 27,498
