Evidence of Virus Spread: NY State Hospitalizations Jump by 242 in a Single Day

NY State’s Coronavirus related hospitalizations, deaths and positivity rate continue on the rise as per Governor Cuomo’s latest COVID-19 update.

For the last day of November, hospitalizations jumped by 242 — a figure not reached since Spring of this year. 132 of that total took place in New York City.

In addition, 66 people passed away (the second time in the month that it reached beyond 60).

As was pointed out yesterday, the averages for November far exceed those of previous months during the time of NY’s recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic. With the last day of November now accounted for, the average daily hospitalization for the month is 2,176. That puts it at 240% above October’s average daily number of 906.

For the sake of context, the 7-day rolling average for the past three weeks has gone from 2.7% to 3.43%. Yesterday’s positivity rate was 4.46% whereas it was 2.58% three weeks ago on November 10.

Today, the Governor reiterated his concerns over the hospitalization being overwhelmed.

“Thanksgiving was not just one day or weekend – it was the commencement of the holiday season, and the holiday season means increased social activity, which means an increased viral transmission. The rate will likely continue to go up through New Year’s and the number one priority when you get into this situation is tracking hospitalizations and ensuring hospitals do not become overwhelmed,” said the Governor.

The following charts represent the daily hospitalizations and deaths from September 19 to the present day.
