170 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.

“New York faces increasing COVID cases throughout the state, and we have a long way to go before getting to the light at the end of the tunnel. But we know what causes the spread—social interactions and holiday gatherings are contributors—and we know how to slow it down,” Governor Cuomo said. “New York is fighting the COVID virus on all fronts, constantly improving our ability to conduct more tests and making sure there’s enough space in our hospitals. But those measures aren’t enough, and we need New Yorkers to practice the everyday behaviors—washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing—that slow the spread and save lives. We can stop shutdowns, but only if we do it together.”
