12 COVID-19 Deaths in New York State Yesterday

ALBANY, NY —  Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our state had one of the highest infection rates in the nation, if not the globe, and we now have the third lowest in the country. We cannot become complacent and risk going backwards,” Governor Cuomo said. “We continue to closely monitor the data and handle micro-clusters as they happen, as well as watching what is happening around us as cases surge again across the country. As we head into winter months, it will be critical for all New Yorkers to keep up the good work of wearing our masks, washing our hands and remaining socially distant – and above all staying New York Tough.”

The Governor noted that the positive testing rate in all focus areas under the state’s Micro-Cluster strategy is 2.75 percent, and outside the focus zone areas is 1.38 percent. Within the focus areas, 16,461 test results were reported yesterday, yielding 453 positives. In the remainder of the state, not counting these focus areas, 130,424 test results were reported, yielding 1,802 positives. Full results for tests reported yesterday, the day prior, the current 7-day rolling average, and last two weeks is below:
