New York Cases of COVID-19 on Downswing, Governor Cuomo Continues to Urge Caution
As the number of cases of COVID-19 continue to trend downwards, Governor Cuomo says that New Yorkers should still take caution.
As of Sunday, according to the Governor’s office, there were 298 new cases of COVID-19 in New York City from people that tested positive bringing the net total of cases in the City to 221,419. Over Friday and Saturday, of people who took a COVID-19 test in New York City, 1.3% tested positive.
Per the Governor’s numbers, one person died yesterday of COVID-19 in Brooklyn and 13 people total statewide.
"We're continuing to progress forward through the COVID-19 pandemic in the face of a continued explosion of cases throughout the United States, and that's reflected in today's hospitalizations—the lowest number since March 18—and rate of positive cases," Governor Cuomo said. "During these confining and frustrating times, I know it's tempting to be tired of the many rules and guidelines the state has issued, but I reiterate that this pandemic is far from over, and the incredible compliance and fortitude of New Yorkers are key parts of our ability to fight COVID-19. Socially distance, wear a mask, wash your hands and stay New York Smart."
