There have been 11 additional deaths in New York due to coronavirus, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo called “relatively good news” compared to where the state was at the height of the pandemic: The governor also hailed Long Island’s entering Phase 4 reopening today.
“The bad news is everything around us, frankly,” Cuomo said. “Thirty six states are seeing an increase in the COVID infection rate. That is the bad news.”
Cuomo said that is not a matter of increased testing – increased hospitalizations show the reality of the problem, he said.
