Press Release, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Office

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced New York State’s lowest death toll and hospitalizations due to COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

Yesterday, there were five deaths and 869 hospitalizations in New York State.

“As states across the country struggle with new outbreaks related to reopening, New York’s numbers continue to go down to record lows,” Governor Cuomo said. “Our progress is a direct result of New Yorkers’ discipline and hard work and an incremental, data-driven reopening. Yesterday, as our hospitalizations dropped below 900, New York had its lowest single-day death toll since March 15th. While today’s numbers are very encouraging, New Yorkers must remain vigilant or the numbers will shoot right back up. Be smart, wear a mask, stay New York Tough!”

  • Patient Hospitalization – 869 (-39)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 54 (-24)
  • Number ICU – 229 (-1)
  • Number ICU that are intubated – 145 (+1)
  • Deaths – 5
  • Total Deaths in NY from Covid-19 – 24,835

Of the 61,906 tests conducted in New York State yesterday, 616, or 0.99 percent, were positive.

The Governor also confirmed 616 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 392,539 confirmed cases in New York State.
