News

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

“Our progress is thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers – even after two and a half months of reopening, the numbers have continued to go down,” Governor Cuomo said. “But we learned from this crisis that nobody is safe until everybody is safe, and an outbreak anywhere is an outbreak everywhere. Surging infection rates across the country threaten that progress, so we must continue to wear our masks, socially distance and stay New York Tough.”

  • Total Deaths – 25,179
