ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Governor Cuomo Sunday announced new lows for COVID-19 hospitalizations, patients in ICUs and intubations.

Hospitalizations reportedly dropped to 472, the lowest number since March 16, and the number of patients in ICUs dropped to 110, the lowest number since March 15. Intubations dropped to 50, the lowest number since mid-March. New York State’s rate of positive tests has been less than 1 percent for 16 straight days. No COVID-19 deaths were reported in New York City Saturday.

“New Yorkers should be proud that their hard work and discipline led to another day of record low numbers. Our hospitalizations, intubations, and people in the ICU are the lowest they’ve been since mid-March — that’s a real achievement,” Governor Cuomo said. “But make no mistake: this virus is still surging in parts of the country and until there is a vaccine we cannot become numb or complacent about the risks we face. Local governments must continue to enforce public health guidance and we all must remember to be smart – follow the guidance, wear masks, socially distance, and stay New York Tough!”
