NEW YORK STATE (NEWS10) — Governor Andrew Cuomo Friday updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“New York continues to make progress combatting the scourge of COVID-19, even as we see heavily increasing infections in other states,” Governor Cuomo said. “Yesterday, hospitalizations continued to decline and we saw a low rate of positive tests, which show the state continues on the right track as we practice a slow, data-driven and incremental reopening. The more than 900 new cases in New York yesterday, while representing just 1.38 percent of tests, is a reminder that the virus is still here and I cannot repeat enough that our actions today – those of individuals being smart and following all precautions, and local governments enforcing the state’s guidelines – will determine which direction these numbers go. This holiday weekend please wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands, and stay New York smart.”

Friday’s data is summarized below:

  • Patient Hospitalization – 857 (-21)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 73 (-23)
  • Hospital Counties – 30
  • Number ICU – 188 (-21)
  • Number ICU with Intubation – 125 (-4)
  • Total Discharges – 70,794 (+96)
  • Deaths – 9
  • Total Deaths – 24,885
