ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo says “New York’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has always been by the numbers.”

Now, with New York in a better place than many states across the country, Gov. Cuomo says New York will assist other states with high infection rates.

“As states across the nation are seeing spikes in new cases, New York continues to see declining numbers, which is why we are reaching out to those states to offer our help,” Cuomo said. “In our hour of need we had volunteers from across the country who helped us go from the worst situation in the country to one of the best, and we will repay that help and that kindness in any way we can.”

Here are the latest coronavirus statistics for New York:

  • Patient Hospitalization – 951 (-45), lowest daily total since pandemic began
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 62 (-6)
  • Hospital Counties – 30
  • Number ICU – 244 (-26)
  • Number ICU that are intubated – 146 (-21)
  • Total Discharges – 70,115 (+105)
  • Deaths – 14
  • Total Deaths – 24,814

On Thursday, 1.3 percent of the 61,723 tests performed across the state came back positive. Western New York’s positive rate was just above that, at 1.4 percent.
