State News: Gov. Hochul Updates New Yorkers on State’s Progress Combatting Covid-19

*As of 6/17/2022

NOTE: Updates to the CDC’s cumulative death data files were paused starting June 6, 2022, while the CDC upgrades its system. Reporting is expected to resume on June 21, 2022. Any questions about this should be directed to the CDC. During this time, total deaths and new daily deaths reported through HERDS will continue as normal. 

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

“New Yorkers should continue making use of the resources we have at our disposal to fight COVID-19 and keep each other safe and well,” Governor Hochul said. “This includes staying up to date on vaccination doses and getting tested before traveling, congregating with family, or when you feel sick. After the CDC issues a final recommendation on COVID vaccines for children under five, I encourage parents and guardians to talk with their pediatricians about getting their young ones vaccinated.”        

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:         

  • Cases Per 100k – 26.49  
  • 7-Day Average Cases Per 100k 24.98 
  • Test Results Reported  93,066
  • Total Positive  5,176
  • Percent Positive  5.12%
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive – 5.48%
  • Patient Hospitalization  1,842 (-42)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 313
  • Patients in ICU  211 (0)
  • Patients in ICU with Intubation  76 (-3) 
  • Total Discharges  312,587 (+345)
  • New deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS 13
  • Total deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS  56,375      

** 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 – 71,670
