NY State COVID-19 Health Indicators Look Promising As Numbers Continue to Drop

NY State COVID-19 Health Indicators Look Promising As Numbers Continue to Drop

The COVID-19 health indicators from the past weeks (which are shared on a daily basis by NY Governor Cuomo’s office) reveal a very promising outlook for New York State.

The 7-day average positivity rate (3.90%) went below 4% since and for the first time since Christmas Day (2020), hospitalizations have dropped to below 7,000 (at 6,888 for February 12).

In turn, the daily positivity rate dropped to its lowest (at 3.46%) since November 25.

As you’ll see from the charts provided below, recorded statistics from late September to the present reveal a very promising situation for New York State. We’ve been sharing such charts, using that time frame, since it was third week of that month that our health indicators took a turn for the worst as we approached the pre-holiday season.

“Hospitalization and infection rates are continuing to fall statewide and New Yorkers should be commended for all their hard work and sacrifice which helped make this a reality,” Governor Cuomo said. “If we are to win this war against COVID once and for all, we must keep driving down these rates, as well as to get as many shots into arms as possible. New York has the determination, toughness and vaccination infrastructure to make all of this happen, but our success will ultimately be determined by our willingness to keep making the right decisions and I have every confidence that New Yorkers will continue to do just that.”
