Yesterday, there were five deaths and 869 hospitalizations in New York State. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

“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!”
