(WIVB) — Governor Andrew Cuomo says Western New York is back up at the top when it comes to the seven-day COVID positivity average across the state.
During Monday’s phone conference, the governor announced WNY’s positivity rate was up to 4.7%.
Cuomo reminded folks that WNY was a real problem for a long time. He said the state communicated the message of the severity and WNY improved.
“I’m not a scientist, but to me it is undeniable that behavior of a community makes the difference,” Cuomo said. “Why do you have Manhattan at 2.6 and Western New York at 4.7?”
