New York State has kept coronavirus test positivity rates under 1% for the past 20 days, Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a briefing with the press Thursday morning, calling the statistic "really good news."
Just 0.9% of the 83,000 individuals tested across the state Wednesday were positive for the virus, he said.
There were four Covid-19-affiliated deaths, 490 coronavirus-related hospitalizations and 52 intubations Wednesday, he said, congratulating New Yorkers for the declining numbers.
Congratulations to New Yorkers. Stay with it, stay with it, stay with it," Cuomo said.
These numbers were released by the state, and may not line up exactly in real time with CNN’s database drawn from Johns Hopkins University and the Covid Tracking Project.
