New York Reaches 7 Million COVID-19 Tests Milestone

New York reaches 7 Million COVID-19 Tests Milestone

NY Governor Andrew Cuomo today reported that the State of New York has reached a milestone of 7 million cumulative diagnostic tests for COVID-19

There was a time when the state and the city of New York were struggling to accomplish a ten thousand cases in one day – now the state conducts upwards of 80,000 tests or more per day.

“Our numbers reflect the hard work of New Yorkers, and as other states across the nation see surging cases, our numbers remain steadily low. For more than a week, we’ve seen our positivity rate stay below 1 percent, and to date New York has done 7 million tests—these are remarkable accomplishments that New Yorkers should be proud of,” stated the Governor Cuomo. “New York State is demonstrating that a response guided by science and data – not politics or opinion – is the only effective way to deal with this virus. But, we must not become complacent and risk slipping backwards — everyone must remember to wear their masks, socially distance, wash their hands regularly, and stay New York Tough.”
