ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the COVID-19 pandemic on Monday. He said that 4,830 patients were hospitalized statewide and 1,005 patients were in the ICU.

The statewide positivity rate was at 3.62% Monday and there were 64 COVID-related deaths in a one-day time span. “The hospitalization and infection rates in New York are declining every day, and New York is now in the middle of a long-awaited reopening,” Cuomo said in a statement.

Monday’s data is summarized as follows:

  • Test Results Reported – 146,456
  • Total Positive – 5,309
  • Percent Positive – 3.62%
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive – 3.19%

  • Total Discharges – 150,473 (+373)

The governor’s office said it is important to note that data reported early in the week is often not completely reflective of the current situation due to lower discharges and testing volume over the weekend.
