New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the three-day average for coronavirus hospitalizations is down slightly, adding that officials believe the apex is here.
"We think we are at the apex, on the plateau," he said at a news conference.
However, while the rates are down, the volume of patients coming in daily is still high, Cuomo added.
"We still had 1,600 new people come in yesterday," he said. "The volume is still high."
