Governor Encourages New Yorkers to Keep Using the Tools to Protect Against and Treat COVID-19: Vaccines, Boosters, Testing, and Treatment 

13 Statewide Deaths Reported Yesterday

NOTE: Updates to the CDC's cumulative death data files were paused starting June 6, 2022, while the CDC upgrades its system. Reporting is expected to resume on June 21, 2022. Any questions about this should be directed to the CDC. During this time, total deaths and new daily deaths reported through HERDS will continue as normal. 

Governor Kathy Hochul today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combating COVID-19. 

"New Yorkers should continue making use of the resources we have at our disposal to fight COVID-19 and keep each other safe and well," Governor Hochul said. "This includes staying up to date on vaccination doses and getting tested before traveling, congregating with family, or when you feel sick. After the CDC issues a final recommendation on COVID vaccines for children under five, I encourage parents and guardians to talk with their pediatricians about getting their young ones vaccinated." 

Today's data is summarized briefly below:     

  • Cases Per 100k - 26.49  
  • 7-Day Average Cases Per 100k - 24.98 
  • Test Results Reported - 93,066
  • Total Positive - 5,176
  • Percent Positive - 5.12%
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive - 5.48%
  • Patient Hospitalization - 1,842 (-42)
  • Patients Newly Admitted - 313
  • Patients in ICU - 211 (0)
  • Patients in ICU with Intubation - 76 (-3) 
  • Total Discharges - 312,587 (+345)
  • New deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS - 13
  • Total deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS - 56,375  

** Due to the test reporting policy change by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and several other factors, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data -- not percent positivity.    

The Health Electronic Response Data System is a NYS DOH data source that collects confirmed daily death data as reported by hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities only.      

Important Note: Effective Monday, April 4, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is no longer requiring testing facilities that use COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to report negative results. As a result, New York State's percent positive metric will be computed using only lab-reported PCR results. Positive antigen tests will still be reported to New York State and reporting of new daily cases and cases per 100k will continue to include both PCR and antigen tests. Due to this change and other factors, including changes in testing practices, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data -- not percent positivity.    

  • Total deaths reported to and compiled by the CDC - 71,670         

This daily COVID-19 provisional death certificate data reported by NYS DOH and NYC to the CDC includes those who died in any location, including hospitals, nursing homes, adult care facilities, at home, in hospice and other settings.        

  • Total vaccine doses administered - 39,187,184

  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with at least one vaccine dose - 92.7%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with completed vaccine series - 84.2%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with at least one vaccine dose (CDC) - 95.0%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 18 and older with completed vaccine series (CDC) - 87.7%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 12-17 with at least one vaccine dose (CDC) - 80.4%
  • Percent of New Yorkers ages 12-17 with completed vaccine series (CDC) - 73.9%
  • Percent of all New Yorkers with at least one vaccine dose - 82.3%    
  • Percent of all New Yorkers with completed vaccine series - 74.6%

The COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker Dashboard is available to update New Yorkers on the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The New York State Department of Health requires vaccinating facilities to report all COVID-19 vaccine administration data within 24 hours; the vaccine administration data on the dashboard is updated daily to reflect the most up-to-date metrics in the state's vaccination effort. New York State Department of Health-reported data from NYSIIS and CIR differs slightly from federally-reported data, which is inclusive of federally-administered doses and other minor differences. Both numbers are included in the release above.
