NY Governor Cuomo Press Release – July 3, 2020

Governor Cuomo Updates New Yorkers on State’s Progress During Covid-19 Pandemic

1.38 Percent of Yesterday’s COVID-19 Tests were Positive

9 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday

Confirms 918 Additional Coronavirus Cases in New York State – Bringing Statewide Total to 395,872; New Cases in 42 Counties

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The number of new cases, percentage of tests that were positive and many other helpful data points are always available at forward.ny.gov.

“New York continues to make progress combatting the scourge of COVID-19, even as we see heavily increasing infections in other states,” Governor Cuomo said. “Yesterday, hospitalizations continued to decline and we saw a low rate of positive tests, which show the state continues on the right track as we practice a slow, data-driven and incremental reopening. The more than 900 new cases in New York yesterday, while representing just 1.38 percent of tests, is a reminder that the virus is still here and I cannot repeat enough that our actions today – those of individuals being smart and following all precautions, and local governments enforcing the state’s guidelines – will determine which direction these numbers go. This holiday weekend please wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands, and stay New York smart.”

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:

Patient Hospitalization – 857 (-21)

Patients Newly Admitted – 73 (-23)

Hospital Counties – 30

Number ICU – 188 (-21)

Number ICU with Intubation – 125 (-4)

Total Discharges – 70,794 (+96)

Deaths – 9

Total Deaths – 24,885

Of the 66,392 tests conducted in New York State yesterday, 918, or 1.38 percent, were positive. Each region’s percentage of positive tests over the last three days is as follows:

 

REGION TUESDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY
