NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- New York state reported four new COVID-19 deaths on Sunday, but its infection rate stayed below 1 percent for the 38th straight day, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday.
The four people who died passed away in Erie County, Queens, Suffolk County and Westchester County, bringing the state’s death toll to 25,394, Cuomo said in a release Monday afternoon.
Of the 63,358 COVID-19 test results that came back on Sunday, 583, or 0.92 percent, were positive, he said. As of Sunday, 464 people in the state were hospitalized with COVID-19, 143 of whom were in intensive care units and 59 of whom were on ventilators.
“We can defeat this virus and create a better future, but we need New Yorkers to wear masks, socially distance and wash their hands as local governments enforce state guidance,” Cuomo said in a statement.
“There’s no doubt that we’ve made progress, but this is not over,” he added. “By staying New York Tough, we’ll get through this together.”
