COVID-19 related hospitalizations in New York State continue to Rise Through Autumn
COVID-19 related hospitalizations in New York reached 1,277 for November 4, 2020 and has been on the rise since late September.
Nearly two week ago we reported how hospitalization in the state had reached beyond 1,000 for the first time since June 23. Little did we think that they would continue on an upward trajectory in the days to follow.
“Every expert told us come the fall cases would go up, and that’s what’s happening around the country and the globe,” Governor Cuomo said. “We got ready here in New York: we have our micro-cluster strategy and we have our additional testing. That’s why we have the third lowest positivity rate in the country. But COVID fatigue is creeping up and there are serious caution flags in Western New York, the Finger Lakes, and in other communities across the state, so it is more important than ever that we be vigilant. Wear masks, wash your hands, adhere to social distancing rules, and enforce the public health guidelines that are there to save lives.”
