136 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“From hospitalizations to the infection rate, our COVID numbers continue to decline which isn’t only great news, but a testament to the hard work of New Yorkers to overcome the post-holiday surge,” Governor Cuomo said. “Moving forward, we must do everything we can to keep moving in the right direction until we ultimately win this war once and for all. While all of us continue to practice the safe behaviors we know work on the individual level, the state will continue its mission to fairly and equitably get as many shots in arms as possible. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but it’s up to us to determine how long it takes to get there. If we stay united and stay on track, we will get there together.”
