NY COVID-19 Recovery Updates – Milestones, Vaccination Sites, Improving Steps Toward Recovery

Beginning tomorrow, February 26, 2020, indoor dining can expand to a capacity of 35% in NYC.

Latest COVID-19 Metrics, as furnished by Governor Cuomo and the NY DOH today is as follows:

  • Test Results Reported – 278,942
  • Total Positive – 8,746
  • Percent Positive – 3.14%
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive – 3.34%
  • Patient Hospitalization – 5,703 (-173)
  • Net Change Patient Hospitalization Past Week – -731
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 675
  • Hospital Counties – 55
  • Number ICU – 1,124 (-30)
  • Number ICU with Intubation – 774 (-26)
  • Total Discharges – 144,322 (+663)
  • Deaths – 89
  • Total Deaths – 38,227

Deaths continue their downward trend as do daily hospitalizations. More importantly, the 7-day average of positivity rates for the state continue to go lower on a day by day basis. The latest number of 3.34% is the lowest it’s been since November 27, 2020.

In as far as state vaccinations are concerned,

STATEWIDE BREAKDOWN

First Doses Received – 2,812,900
First Doses Administered – 2,562,274
Total Doses Received – 4,530,640
Total Doses Administered – 3,985,558

With the above in mind, 12.8% of the state’s New Yorkers have received their first dose. 7% have been fully vaccinated.

“The vaccine is the weapon that will win the war, we know that it works, and it will be what gets us to the light at the end of the tunnel,” Governor Cuomo said. “We’re doing everything we can to further build our vaccination network and ensure the vaccine is being administered equitably, but one of our biggest obstacles to getting every single New Yorker vaccinated remains a lack of supply. The Biden Administration has been increasing our doses each week and in turn we’ve been able to expand eligibility to even more New Yorkers. Now that the FDA has found the Johnson & Johnson vaccine safe and effective against COVID, larger shipments and a greater supply are on the horizon, putting us one step closer to becoming the first COVID-free state in the nation.” 

Meanwhile, the Governor announced 12 community-based pop-up vaccination sites where local residents could begin making appointment for their first shots:
