Of the 7,500 people tested statewide for antibodies against coronavirus, 14.9% have tested positive, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced at a press briefing on Monday.
"It gives a snapshot of where we are," he said.
Five days ago, 13.9% had tested positive. Statistically, the one point difference lies in the margin of error, Cuomo said.
"I would like to see the margin go the other way," Cuomo added.
Men are still more likely to have the virus than women by a couple of points. There has been an uptick of positive tests for antibodies among Asian-Americans and Latino residents. The number has gone down for black residents, Cuomo said.
