NYS 7-Day Average for COVID-19 Positivity Rate Continues Its Descent As Does Hospitalizations

Governor Cuomo today reported that the 7-Day Average for Coronavirus positivity rate reached a low of 4.95% – continuing its decline since a high of 7.94% on January 4 – promising as well is the ongoing drop in hospitalizations.

The Governor has reported the COVID-19 indicators to New Yorkers on a daily basis. The latest numbers show that virus-related hospitalizations have also continued on a descent as have deaths, yet in a less determined way as illustrated in the chart below.

Over the past five days the death rate has remained at 151 or below whereas in the previous five days it ranged from 160 to 170.

Numbers which are almost impossible to imagine when considering how daily deaths were as low as zero for numerous days in August.

Recently, hospitalizations dipped below 8,000 for the first time since December. This indicator’s drop has continued since its high of 9,273 on January 19.

“New Yorker’s hard work and commitment to defeating this virus is reflected in the numbers more and more every day,” Governor Cuomo said. “While we are not out of the woods yet, we are on a promising trajectory and we need to maintain that progress. Remember – this is a footrace we are in and winning it means we have to continue driving down the infection rate, while vaccinating as many people as possible. New York has already established a wide-reaching distribution network that is getting thousands of shots in arms every day and with another increase in supply from the federal government on its way, we will be able to do even more. We just need to continue this momentum on all fronts, so we can put this beast to rest once and for all.”
