State, which was once the epicenter of the pandemic, now reports fewer deaths due to coronavirus infection
One person died of covid-19 in New York State on Sunday (20), the lowest number since the beginning of the pandemic, in March, said Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday (21).
Cuomo assured that his usual pandemic press conference will not stop “until that number [de óbitos] be zero “and stated that, with what is happening with the covid-19 in the world, New York” is a truly extraordinary achievement. “
He also indicated that 458 people are hospitalized because of the virus, of which 134 are in the intensive care unit and 66 of them are intubated, six more than the day before.
The governor also indicated that in the task of keeping the contagion rate low “and being disciplined”, bars and universities “continue to be a problem”, as he explained that there are still violations of compliance with the executive order that requires masks and social distance.
Although Nova York – where daily deaths reach 800 – no longer the state with the highest number of infections, it remains the most affected in terms of deaths in the United States with 33,087, more than in all of Peru, France or Spain, according to with the latest data from Johns Hopkins University.
The United States has 6.8 million infections and has already reached 200 thousand deaths.
