New York City reported no confirmed or probable Covid-19 deaths Saturday, according to preliminary data from the New York City Health Department and a spokesperson for the mayor’s office.
Officials from both offices stressed that this data is preliminary and subject to change due to the retroactive nature of the City’s reporting system.
Right now it is too early to say that there were no fatalities on the [July] 11,” said Michael Lanza, NYC Department of Health spokesperson said. He added that all data is preliminary and subject to change.
Similarly a representative from the mayor’s office tells CNN while data from the health department shows no new deaths reported Saturday, the deaths are reported retroactively so it's still uncertain whether there were no Covid-19 related deaths on Saturday.
Earlier Sunday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo reported five people died from Covid-19 Saturday.
NYC reported no Covid-19 confirmed deaths Friday, but reported two probable Covid-19 deaths that day, according to available data.
