BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Erie County is showing positive changes in the fight against coronavirus.

On Tuesday morning, County Executive Mark Poloncarz tweeted that COVID-19 hospitalizations in the county have dropped below 100 “for the first time since late March.”

The latest number of hospitalized patients in Erie County is 98. The amount of patients receiving intensive care has also dropped, coming down to 30.
