Gov. Andrew Cuomo reported that 367 people died across New York over the past 24 hours from coronavirus, he said at a news conference today.
"The overall hospitalization rate is down, number of intubations is down. Even the number of new Covid cases is down. Still not good. Still 1,000 new Covid cases yesterday, to put it in focus. That would normally be terrible news. It's only not terrible news compared to where we were. This is just terrible news; 367 deaths, which is horrific," Cuomo said. "There is no relative context to death. Death is death; 367 people passed; 367 families."
There were 437 coronavirus-related deaths in New York on April 24.
Cuomo added: "We are now back to where we were on March 31st before we started this dramatic increase in the number of cases."
