Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  

 

“The White House believes the U.S. cannot control this pandemic – but New York flattened the curve and we continue to control this virus,” Governor Cuomo said. “The data shows that our micro-cluster strategy is working, by stopping small spreads before they become larger. The strategy relies on government being quick, competent and effective – and this is how we are going to control spread through the vaccination period. New York had the highest infection rate in the country, if not on the globe, but New Yorkers came together like no other community and were able to control the virus and flatten the curve.”

        

The Governor noted that the positive testing rate in all focus areas under the state’s Micro-Cluster strategy is 3.25 percent, and outside the focus zone areas is 1.18 percent. Within the focus areas, 10,452 test results were reported yesterday, yielding 340 positives. In the remainder of the state, not counting these focus areas, 71,665 test results were reported, yielding 851 positives. Full results for tests reported yesterday, the day prior, the current 7-day rolling average, and last two weeks is below:
