Yellow Zone daily percent-positive rate for Erie County reaches 8.17%

Coronavirus

ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB)– As of Friday, November 13, Erie County’s yellow zone reached an 8.17 daily percent-positive rate of COVID as cases continue to rise in New York State. 

“We are seeing a rising tide of COVID nationally and internationally. The rate of increase is less in New York, but it is an increase,” Governor Cuomo said. “We don’t have the same problem that other states have, but we’re seeing an increase and the increase is continuing. “

Across the state, hospitalizations, ICU numbers, and intubations saw an increase. A total of 24 deaths were recorded including four in Erie County, one in Allegany County, and two in Niagara County.

Cuomo noted factors that contribute to spread like  COVID fatigue, winter, restaurants, gyms, and living room family spread and warned of shut down.

“Will we shut down and will we have more restrictions? What has worked for New York from day one is it’s a pure consequence of science. There’s no political decision making, no ideological decision making. Look at the numbers, and if the numbers are increasing and if they’re not slowing, then you have to restrict activity. “

Erie County’s total cases through November 13 now sit at 17,540. Outside of the yellow zone, all of Western New York is reporting a four-point-six positivity rate, tied for the highest in New York State.
