Gov. Andrew Cuomo reported that New York has seen 207 coronavirus-related deaths over the past 24 hours.
Cuomo also said the state recorded 521 new coronavirus cases, which brings New York "back to where we started this hellish journey," he said during a new conference Sunday.
"March 20th is when we did the close down order. Where we are today is basically, with the number of new cases, is right where we were when we started. It has been a painful period of time between March 20th and May 9th," Cuomo said.
In regards to the number of deaths, Cuomo said the number is "still terribly high but better."
On May 8, Cuomo said 226 people had died from Covid-19 in the state.
