New York: New Low for COVID-19 Hospitalizations, ICU Patients and Intubations

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced some new milestones for the state’s health metrics where Coronavirus is concerned.

For what might appear to be a daily occurrence, the Governor once again had good news to share with New Yorkers. Hospitalizations have now dropped to 472 which is the lowest they’ve been since March 16.

ICU (Intensive Care Unit) patients have dropped to 110, lowest since March 15.

Intubations (need for ventilation equipment or procedures) were now at 50, yet another new low since mid March.

Also, for the 16th day, New York’s infection rate has been below 1 percent.

“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!”
