Cuomo Gives More Good News About Coronavirus in New York
Some steps that have been taken to slow the spread of coronavirus in New York appear to be working.
As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in New York continues to increase, so does the number of hospitalizations. However, the rate of hospitalizations continues to slowdown statewide, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
At first, hospitalization rates were doubling once every two days. Last week, Cuomo said it was doubling every 4.7 days and now Cuomo says the number of people entering hospitals around the state doubles every six days.
However, the number of confirmed cases and hospitalizations is increasing quicker than projected.
On Monday, Cuomo was annoyed that many New Yorkers aren't following his mandate to stay at home. He confirmed over 1,000 New Yorkers have died from COVID-19 and announced there are now 66,497 confirmed coronavirus cases in the state.
"Anyone who says this is a New York City problem is in a state of denial," Cuomo said. "There is no American who is immune. What is happening to New York is not an anomaly."
