Covid-19 Cases in NY Hit New Low

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that COVID-19 hospitalizations and ICU patients have dropped to new lows. Hospitalizations dropped to 418, a new low since March 16, and the number of patients in ICUs dropped to 109, a new low since March 15. Yesterday, one person was reported to have died from COVID-19 in New York State, which is the lowest single-day death toll. No deaths were reported in New York City.

“Yesterday we had the lowest number hospitalized and the lowest number in the ICU since this crisis began. One New Yorker passed away and that New Yorker’s family is in our thoughts and prayers, but we should pause a moment on that fact. There was a time when we were going through this crisis when we literally had hundreds of people dying every day,” Governor Cuomo said. “And I asked New Yorkers to understand the facts and to act responsibly and I said that what the future holds is determined by what New Yorkers do. Together we did flatten the curve and we saved lives.”
