Coronavirus USA Updates: New York state reports fewer than 75 new deaths for 7th straight day

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that at least 54 people in the state had died from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours.

It’s the seventh straight day with fewer than 75 fatalities.

“That number is dramatically different than what we were looking at for many, many weeks,” Cuomo said at Monday’s press briefing.

New York state recorded its highest single-day increase in coronavirus-related fatalities on April 7, when 799 died from COVID-19.

Hospitalizations and intubations in the state are also on the decline, which the governor said is “really good news.”

Cuomo said the Western New York region, which includes the cities of Buffalo, Rochester, Niagara Falls, Jamestown and the neighboring suburbs, is on track to move to the second phase of reopening on Tuesday, noting that the data so far “looks very good.” A decision will be announced later Monday.

He said he also expects the Capital District, the metropolitan area surrounding the state capital, Albany, to enter phase two on Wednesday.
