30 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.

 

“What we’re seeing now as COVID rages across the country and world is what scientists told us time and time again would happen as the colder months arrived,” Governor Cuomo said. “But we learned from what we went through in New York and we’ve been a step ahead ever since. These next few weeks will be challenging as the holidays arrive. We all want to be with our loved ones, especially after this hard year, but we must remain vigilant. We all have COVID fatigue, but we simply don’t have the luxury of letting our guard down – COVID isn’t tired. If we stay New York Tough and keep up the good work we’ve been doing, wearing our masks, staying socially distant and adhering to gathering limits, we can manage this global surge of COVID, but these next few weeks are key in maintaining our progress.”

    

The Governor noted that the positive testing rate in all focus areas under the state’s Micro-Cluster strategy is 4.05 percent, and outside the focus zone areas is 2.45 percent. Within the focus areas, 23,488 test results were reported yesterday, yielding 953 positives. In the remainder of the state, not counting these focus areas, 109,714 test results were reported, yielding 2,696 positives. Full results for tests reported yesterday, the day prior, the current 7-day rolling average, and last two weeks is below:
