New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the number of deaths in the state was 630 on Thursday, up from 606 deaths on Wednesday.
The number of deaths “refuses to come down dramatically,” Cuomo said in his daily briefing.
It is “breathtaking in its pain and grief and tragedy," the governor added.
The number of people being admitted into hospitals with Covid-19 continues to be about 2,000 per day, Cuomo said.
