Since last December 20 they were confirmed 95 deaths by coronavirus in New York, the state had not registered another day with less than 100 deaths. But this reality changed last weekend, when 97 deaths were reported on Saturday and 75 on Sunday.
In the daily reports on the pandemic sent by Governor Andrew Cuomo, it is detailed that almost all the coronavirus figures in New York continue to trend downward, especially hospitalizations and case positivity rate. But it also stands out that after two months with death numbers over one hundred, and that even mid-January they touched 264, this figure has started to decline gradually.
Sunday also highlighted that, for the first time since November 23, the state’s single-day positivity rate had dropped below 3%, to settle that day at 2.99%.
This percentage reflects a decrease in the number of new infections that were 6,610 statewide, compared to the day before when the figure was 7,692.
“We continue to see a reduction in positivity and hospitalizations across the state, which is good news, and this progress is allowing us to further reopen the valve on our economy,” Cuomo indicated it’s a statement.
