New York COVID-19 Infection Rate at 1 Percent or Higher For Two Consecutive Days

The New York State COVID-19 infection rate for yesterday and the day prior was 1.0 and 1.02 percent consecutively speaking.

The statistics come as part of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s COVID-19 update today. For the state, there were six COVID-19 Deaths with 866 new cases.

For some time, the Governor was proudly remarking about the continuous number of days that the state’s infection rate was below 1 percent. September 14 was the last time he made such an announcement. “38th Straight Day with COVID-19 Infection Rate Below 1 Percent” appeared in that day’s press release.

Since then, the infection rate has returned to below 1 Percent figures on a continual basis. Yet, the updates from the past two days reflect what might be considered to be a departure from those trends. Of course, it’s too early to judge where we’ll be in a week, or two or three.

But, one needs to keep in mind a statistic everyone is watching. The extreme rise of infection rates in portions of NYC’s Brooklyn and Queens Boroughs. The Department of Health has warned that the reins may be pulled back on reopening in those areas should they not improve by Monday evening.

We reported yesterday on the fact that the State’s daily new infection numbers had gone above 1,000 for the first time in months.

“COVID-19 remains a force to be reckoned with throughout the country and around the globe, and we cannot drop our guard. While our numbers remain relatively flat, we continue to closely monitor the data daily as always,” Governor Cuomo said. “I urge New Yorkers to keep wearing masks, socially distancing and washing their hands, and local governments must continue to enforce state public health guidance. By staying vigilant and smart, we can beat COVID together.”

We’ll be keeping an eye on all of these developments.
