Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the infection rate for COVID-19 is under 1%. In a statement released Saturday, he said the 74,857 test results reported to New York state Friday, 703, or 0.93%, were positive.
Cuomo said five people died from COVID-19 on Friday and the number of hospitalizations, intubations, and people in ICUs are all low statewide.
"While our numbers remain low and steady, this is not the time to get complacent,” wrote Cuomo. “We must focus on protecting our hard-won progress now. Remember, wear your mask, socially distance and above all, stay New York Tough."
