New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that 74 people died yesterday in the state from the coronavirus. He called this "relatively positive news" compared to the higher daily death toll number the state was previously seeing.
"This is always painful. And we're going to be watching this number to see how far down it actually goes," he added.
Cuomo said that hospitalizations, intubations, and new Covid-19 cases are also down in the state. "That is all very very good news," he said.
