Gov. Cuomo marks Memorial Day from USS Intrepid among declining COVID death toll


NEW YORK (AP) – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the daily number of dead from the coronavirus has moved slightly below 100 again as the trend continues to decline.

He announced Monday during his daily press briefing that 96 people died on Sunday.

That represents a significant drop from the early April peak of 799 deaths back on April 8.

The latest tally from Cuomo came as the nation’s death toll from the coronavirus exceeded 100,000 on Memorial Day.
