Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 207,907 test results were reported to New York State yesterday—a new record high.

 

“While we continue to see COVID-19 cases surge around the globe, our data-driven micro-cluster strategy – centered on a robust testing program – has helped New York maintain one of the nation’s lowest infection rates. However, we are in no way immune to the problems we are seeing elsewhere and we are entering a very dangerous period with the cold weather and holidays approaching,” Governor Cuomo said. “I understand the desire to come together with those you love and celebrate the holidays, but truly loving someone in 2020 unfortunately means you might not get to be together physically. Time and again, New Yorkers have put their toughness on display in order to keep themselves, their families, and their communities safe – and we must continue doing that, as difficult as it may be. By making these tough decisions and practicing the safe behaviors we know help stop the spread, we will get through this as one unified, loving state.”

 

The Governor noted that the positive testing rate in all focus areas under the state’s Micro-Cluster strategy is 4.34 percent, and outside the focus zone areas is 2.49 percent. Within the focus areas, 42,316 test results were reported yesterday, yielding 1,839 positives. In the remainder of the state, not counting these focus areas,165,591 test results were reported, yielding 4,133 positives.
