The number of deaths over the past few days has been dropping “for the first time," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said today during a press conference.
The significance of that is “too early to tell” he added.
Cuomo added that ICU admissions are also down, daily intubations are down “slightly” and the hospital discharge rate is “way up” and that’s “great news.”
He said there is a "shift to Long Island" adding "upstate New York is basically flat… as Long Island grows the percentage of cases in NYC has reduced."
The total number of intubations are down across the state, Cuomo said.
As of April 4, there were about 316 people intubated in the hospital, that number is down from 351 reported the day before.
