ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Governor Cuomo Sunday updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

New York State continues to move forward combatting COVID-19 with its phased, data-driven reopening in the face of alarming increases in cases throughout the country and in the nationwide death rate,” Governor Cuomo said. “What’s happening elsewhere in the United States is very concerning to us here at home, and our ability to avoid the same fate rests on New Yorkers’ willingness to wear masks, socially distance and wash their hands, and local governments’ willingness to enforce state guidelines. Today’s numbers remain low and stable, but it is up to us to keep it that way. Being New York Tough isn’t easy, but New Yorkers have shown the nation that we can effectively fight the virus when we all come together, and I urge them not to give up any ground now.”

New York State is reportedly closely monitoring an uptick in COVID-19 cases in Rensselaer County, a number of which are being investigated as being linked to several people who tested positive for COVID-19 after traveling back to New York from Georgia. They are reportedly in isolation and the New York State Department of Health and Rensselaer County Health Department are conducting contact tracing.

Sunday’s data is summarized briefly below:

  • Patient Hospitalization – 801 (+2)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 75 (+0)
  • Hospital Counties – 28
  • Number ICU – 174 (-3)
  • Number ICU with Intubation – 102 (+2)
  • Total Discharges – 71,565 (+88)
  • Deaths – 5
  • Total Deaths – 24,979
