New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said today that the death toll from the coronavirus outbreak in his state is stabilizing, but at a “horrific rate,” while the hospitalization rate is down.
Another 783 people have died from the virus in the past day, Cuomo said during a press briefing, noting that deaths have ranged between 777 and 799 each of the previous three days.
“That is not an all-time high, and you can see that the number is somewhat stabilizing, but it is stabilizing at a horrific rate,” Cuomo said. “These are just incredible numbers depicting incredible loss and pain.”
New York, the epicenter of the outbreak in the U.S., has grappled with over 174,000 cases of the virus – representing more than a third of all confirmed cases in the country. New York City alone has had over 94,000 confirmed cases and nearly 6,000 deaths.
