Zero Coronavirus Deaths Recorded in NYC for the First Time Since March
On Monday New York City recorded zero coronavirus deaths in what would be the first time since the pandemic raged through the city in March, according to state health data
In New York state, two deaths were reported Monday, in addition to 855 new confirmed cases, Cuomo’s office announced Tuesday.
De Blasio says that we will need to wait to see if Monday’s death data holds true.
“The mayor was very clear that the information was preliminary and subject to change,” a City Hall spokesperson told NPR on Monday.
Saturday, July 11th, was the first day the city recorded no new coronavirus deaths since the pandemic began, but city health officials were quick to announce otherwise days later revising preliminary data to 13 deaths from COVID-19 in the city on that day.
Between 4 and 17 deaths have been recorded each day since July 11th.
According to city data, March 14 is the first day to have reported coronavirus related deaths in NYC, when two people died.
The good news came after Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced he had confiscated the liquor license from three city establishments that failed to comply with social distancing policies.
“The state is taking action,” Cuomo told reporters about the State Liquor Authority crackdown during a conference call, adding, “I’m sorry it’s come to this, but it’s a dangerous situation and I’ve said it many, many times.”
Also, on Tuesday, Cuomo announced the addition of 10 states to the list from which travelers must quarantine for 14 days when visiting New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The newly added states include Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia and Washington.
Minnesota has been removed from the list.
