Finally good news for New Yorkers: lowest number of daily cases and deaths on Tuesday since the state started the lockdown in March, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
In other words, 73 New Yorkers died from COVID-19 infection in the last 24 hours, and nearly 200 people tested positive for the virus, which shows a decrease in the hospitalization numbers as well.
Knowing how difficult it was for the state to take the virus under control, Cuomo is reminding on the importance of wearing masks all the time and respect social distancing.
According to him: wearing a mask “has to be part of literally who we are and what we do every day.”
Due to the absurd circumstances of coronavirus pandemic in New York, a loss of 73 New Yorkers is good news, compared to the previous weeks when that number was extremely higher.
The Governor also added: Any other time and place when we lose 73 New Yorkers, it’s tragic. “It’s tragic now, but relative to where we’ve been, we’re on the other side of the curve and that’s the lowest number that we’ve had.”
The total number of coronavirus deceased in New York is 23,282 while 360,000 people got infected by the virus.
