46 COVID-19 Deaths in NY State; Positivity Rate 4.18%

NYS: Governor Andrew M. Cuomo updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

“We’re working 24/7 to vaccinate as many New Yorkers as quickly as possible, but new variants are spreading across the state and it’s critical for residents to continue practicing safe behaviors,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’ve expanded eligibility and opened new vaccination sites to serve more New Yorkers faster, and we’ll continue to stay focused on those efforts going forward. New Yorkers can get through the COVID-19 pandemic together, but it’s going to take more effort to keep residents and families safe and healthy.”

It is important to note that data, including test results and hospital rates, reported early in the week are often not completely reflective of the current situation due to lower discharges and testing volume over the weekend. Data trends over a period of time, such as using 7-day averages, are a preferred metric.
