Cuomo reports 1.4% positivity rate for Bills game

Buffalo Bills

ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — “How ’bout them Bills on Saturday?”

Not only did Gov. Andrew Cuomo take time to congratulate the Bills on their huge playoff win on Saturday, he also gave an update on the testing done before Saturday night’s game against the Ravens.

“That was just a huge game and a huge congratulations. We’ve also used the playoff games to test a reopen strategy using testing,” Cuomo said during Monday’s COVID-19 update.

The governor said the pilot testing program continues to be successful. He reports that the state did 7,800 tests, and the positivity rate was only 1.4%. “So, it was a great game, it was a great result,” he added.

Cuomo also commended Bills fans for their efforts in raising money for Lamar Jackson’s favorite charity after he suffered a concussion in Saturday’s game.

“And I’ll tell you what was really beautiful. Not just the victory, but afterward, the Buffalo Bills fans donated to Lamar Jackson’s favorite charity after an in-game concussion,” Cuomo said. “What a beautiful gesture by the people of Buffalo, the Buffalo fans. That’s what I mean when I talk about New York loving.”

The governor also complimented Bills fans, who raised thousands of dollars for Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson’s charity of choice after he was knocked out of the game with a concussion.
