NEW YORK (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo says 367 more people have died from the coronavirus in New York state.
Cuomo during his daily news conference Sunday called the number “horrific” but it was less than half the daily number recorded at the height of the health crisis.
He also reported that the number of hospitalizations topped 1,000 on Saturday, but was still falling from the day before. And he said the number of individuals put on a ventilator had dropped as well.
The deaths recorded Saturday and reported Sunday included 349 patients who died in hospitals and 18 individuals who died in nursing homes.
To date, there has been over 17,000 COVID-19 related deaths in New York City, according to Johns Hopkins University.
