New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at least 96 people died from coronavirus across the state yesterday — down from 109 on Saturday.
"It's still painfully high but only in the relative absurdity of our situation, is that relatively good news," Cuomo said.
He noted that the overall hospitalization rate, the number of intubations and day-to-day hospitalizations are all down.
"We are making progress here in New York," he said.
