New York state has reported 157 coronavirus-related deaths over the past day while net hospitalizations are down, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference today.
The net change in intubations is also down, he added.
"Number of new cases per day is also down, 400. Which sounds like a large number, but this is on a statewide population of 19 million, 50,000 hospital beds. The number of lives lost 157. That number has been stubborn, May 10 it was 161, these are all basically in the margin of error, if you will. This system is not that precise, I believe when they actually go back weeks from now and calculate the total number of deaths, at home deaths, et cetera, you'll see a variation in this number," Cuomo said.
