ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — As part of Wednesday’s briefing addressing the potential COVID-19 vaccine, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo updated New Yorkers on the state’s most recent numbers.

“As we continue to move through the holiday season, the good news is that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but unfortunately it is still a ways away and we are now faced with a set of challenges to overcome before we get there. Not only is the number of COVID-19 cases rising virtually everywhere, but they are stemming from a new source, with nearly 70% of cases being traced back to households and private gatherings,” Cuomo said. “Winning the war against COVID has to be an inclusive process and only by everyone working together will we be successful. While we continue to fight to make the federal plan more inclusive, effective and fair, New Yorkers need to do their part to help limit the spread.”

The governor sent out Tuesday’s data:

  • Patient Hospitalization – 3,924 (+150)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 627
  • Hospital Counties – 54
  • Number ICU – 742 (+24)
  • Number ICU with Intubation – 373 (+25)
  • Total Discharges – 86,201 (+393)
  • Deaths – 69
  • Total Deaths – 26,889

The governor also noted that the positive testing rate in microcluster focus areas is 5.88%, and outside the focus zone areas, it’s 4.21%. Within focus areas, 49,027 test results were reported on Tuesday, with 2,882 positives. Elsewhere in the state, not counting these focus areas, 144,524 test results were reported that yielded 6,091 positives:
