Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, the percentage of tests that were positive, and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

“Our progress is thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers – even after two and a half months of reopening, the numbers have continued to go down,” Governor Cuomo said. “But we learned from this crisis that nobody is safe until everybody is safe, and an outbreak anywhere is an outbreak everywhere. Surging infection rates across the country threaten that progress, so we must continue to wear our masks, socially distance, and stay New York Tough.”

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:

  • Patient Hospitalization – 564 (-4)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 82
  • Hospital Counties – 30
  • Number ICU – 134 (-5)
  • Number ICU with Intubation – 69 (+0)
  • Total Discharges – 73,410 (+84)
  • Deaths – 4
  • Total Deaths – 25,179

Of the 72,668 test results reported to New York State yesterday, 636, or 0.87 percent, were positive.

The Governor also confirmed 636 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 418,225 confirmed cases in New York State. Of the 418,225 total individuals who tested positive for the virus, there were 282 cases in Herkimer County with 6 deaths.
