COVID-19 statistics hit new low in New York State

USA

(WETM) – In New York, ICU patients dropped to 877, a new low since December 6 and a 46 percent decline from the post-holiday peak. Intubations also dropped to 530, a new low since December 8 and a 49 percent decline from the post-holiday peak.

“The vaccine is the weapon that will win the war, and each day more New Yorkers are getting vaccinated for COVID-19. However, the infection rate also depends on what we do, and New Yorkers should continue staying safe and protecting one another as the virus continues to spread in our state,” Governor Cuomo said. “Simple behaviors like wearing a mask, washing hands, and social distancing can have an outsize impact, especially when communities make the collective decision to follow the rules. Our vast distribution network is at the ready to ramp up vaccinations, but we still have a long way to go before defeating COVID-19 and ending the pandemic once and for all.”
