Six Million COVID-19 Tests Administered Thus Far in NY State as Per Governor Cuomo

During today’s tele-Press Conference, NY Governor Cuomo announced that, thus far, the state has administered over 6 million diagnostic COVID-19 tests since March. He also reported that nearly 59,000 tests were given yesterday.

The number is still a far cry from testing everyone in the state which has a population of 19.45 million with NYC at 8.4 million. Not that we would ever actually meet that sort of milestone.

It’s still an impressive number considering how there was a time when the state was struggling to get that many tests done in just one week.

By comparison, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) shows that nearly 53 million tests have been given across the nation. That Six Million is makes up over 11% of the country’s total. It’s also greater than the 5 million confirmed cases across all 50 states.
