National COVID-19 Positivity Rate Shows New York State Near Bottom of List with Lowest Number

Some national COVID-19 stats found their way into our inbox today. They came courtesy of NY Governor Andew Cuomo who in turn got them from the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.

I myself have a fondness for those provided at wordometer’s related pages – mostly for their presentation and compilation of data. Just in case you were interested in keeping tabs.

Looking at the below data you’ll find New York State near the very bottom of this list, even with its latest clusters and hot spots. I kind of sense the Governor’s tendency to occasionally release this sort of list, not merely as a congratulatory nod to New Yorkers – but as well, as an occasional response to the President’s derision of Mr. Cuomo’s performance.

Mr. Trump’s been really at it lately, as has the Governor. Via Twitter that is.

I won’t be featuring any of their postings here but just in case: Andrew Cuomo on Twitter.
