Gov. Hochul Updates New Yorkers On State’s Progress Combatting Covid-19

Governor Kathy Hochul today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19.

“While numbers are heading in the right direction, we remain vigilant against this virus and continue to boost our preparedness for any potential surges later this year,” Governor Hochul said. “I encourage New Yorkers to keep using the tools we have available to us to keep each other safe and healthy. Be sure to get fully vaccinated and keep up to date with booster doses to protect yourself and your loved ones from serious illness and hospitalization. Test often, especially if you are experiencing symptoms, and if you test positive, talk to your doctor about available treatments.”

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:   

  • Cases Per 100k – 29.74
  • 7-Day Average Cases Per 100k – 30.32
  • Test Results Reported – 98,261
  • Total Positive – 5,812
  • Percent Positive – 5.78%**  
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive – 6.73%**
  • Patient Hospitalization –  2,409 (-50)
  • Patients Newly Admitted  425
  • Patients in ICU – 219 (-19)
  • Patients in ICU with Intubation – 80 (-5)
  • Total Discharges – 308,012 (+412)
  • New deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS – 20
  • Total deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS – 56,128

** Due to the test reporting policy change by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and several other factors, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data — not percent positivity.   

The Health Electronic Response Data System is a NYS DOH data source that collects confirmed daily death data as reported by hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities only.    

Important Note: Effective Monday, April 4, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is no longer requiring testing facilities that use COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to report negative results. As a result, New York State’s percent positive metric will be computed using only lab-reported PCR results. Positive antigen tests will still be reported to New York State and reporting of new daily cases and cases per 100k will continue to include both PCR and antigen tests. Due to this change and other factors, including changes in testing practices, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data — not percent positivity.  

  • Total deaths reported to and compiled by the CDC – 71,655
