With 630 new COVID-19 deaths statewide, New York’s total death toll is now 12,804 to date, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced during Friday’s daily briefing. There are also now more than 220,000 confirmed cases throughout the state.
“Net change in hospitalizations is undeniably on the decline,” Gov. Cuomo said.
“Yes fewer people in the hospital, but still 2,000 walking through the [hospital] door, and if you’ve noticed it has hovered about the same rate for several weeks,” Gov. Cuomo said.
