161 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.

"During the holiday season, we had one clear message for New Yorkers - if you celebrate smart, you reduce the spread and if you don't, we will see a COVID hangover with increasing infection and hospitalization rates. Unfortunately, we are now seeing that hangover all across this nation,"Governor Cuomo said."To finally overcome this virus, it's going to require all of us to stay united and stay smart. New York is working tirelessly to not only distribute the vaccine quickly and fairly, but also ensure hospitals do not become overwhelmed. With the UK strain now confirmed to be here, we need the federal government to learn the lessons of the spring and requiring testing of all international travelers to help contain it. In the meantime, we all know that our actions will determine what happens next, so let do what we know works - wear a mask, avoid gatherings and socially distance."
