New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state reported 23 more deaths from Covid-19, the “lowest number ever.”
He explained that when the number gets this low it’s basically a question of how people are recording the cause of death across the nation because there may be situations where a person dies from multiple causes — Covid, cancer or heart disease, etc."
“We breathe a deep sigh of relief today,” Cuomo said, adding that the death count, among all the numbers, is the “one number we can’t fix.”
“On the numbers we are making really great progress” he added.
He called today, "another great day in terms of achievement by New Yorkers.”
Hospitalizations are at its lowest point since the “horrific” journey began, he said.
He added that Staten Island had an uptick in percentage of positive cases which he said could be an “aberration” but adds, “we’re watching it.”
