NY Governor Cuomo: 20 Consecutive Days of Sub 1 Percent COVID-19 Infection Rate
For the twentieth day New York has had a COVID-19 Infection Rate below one percent as Governor Andrew Cuomo has stated repeatedly on a near daily basis.
Today’s announcement mentioned how 0.95 percent of those tested yesterday were positive for the Coronavirus.
“We’re closely monitoring the state’s COVID-19 data every day, and the continued 20-day streak with an infection rate below 1 percent is good news. However, I urge New Yorkers not to get complacent, particularly as we move into the fall season,” Governor Cuomo said. “COVID-19 is still a real threat, and it’s the actions each of us take—wearing masks, socially distancing and washing our hands—that make the difference in our ability to fight this virus. Congratulations to New Yorkers—stay with it and stay New York Tough.”
