NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo reported another 74 deaths from the coronavirus today, saying that the number of deaths and hospitalizations is continuing to decline but COVID-19 will “remain a cause of death for the foreseeable future,” 1010 WINS reports.
Cuomo said there were 74 more deaths since Wednesday, when 74 new deaths were also reported.
The lowest number of daily deaths since the pandemic began was reported Tuesday, when there were 73. Over 700 people were dying a day at the height of the pandemic. The death toll in the state is now 23,717.
Cuomo warned deaths from the coronavirus will continue in the coming months. “We have a large state, and the COVID virus tends to attack those who are seniors and those who have underlying illnesses and will remain a cause of death for the foreseeable future, I’m afraid to say,” Cuomo said. “But we want to get this number down as low as possible.” Read more at 1010 WINS.
