Confirms 652 Additional Coronavirus Cases in New York State – Bringing Statewide Total to 446,366; New Cases in 41 Counties


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the infection rate in New York State dropped below one percent again to 0.87. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

“Our numbers continue to remain low, thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers, who rose to the occasion and ultimately flattened the curve,” Governor Cuomo said. “We have been calibrating our reopening based on real-time data, and we will continue to make decisions based on science and facts, because this thing is not over. Having our infection rate come back down to 0.87 is great news for us – we don’t want to see our infection rate go over one percent for any period of time. There is no margin for error: It’s going to take all of us to keep wearing our masks, washing our hands and remaining socially distant.”

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:

Patient Hospitalization – 483 (+2)
Patients Newly Admitted – 69
Hospital Counties – 35
Number ICU – 138 (-6)
Number ICU with Intubation – 67 (+7)
Total Discharges – 75,903 (+56)
Deaths – 4
Total Deaths – 25,410
