Coronavirus hospitalizations in New York drop below 1,000 for first time since March 18, Cuomo says


​New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shared some good news in the state’s coronavirus fight on Thursday morning. “Today NY reached a new milestone,” Cuomo tweeted. “Total hospitalizations fell to 996 — dropping below 1K for the first time since March 18th.”

He urged residents to remain vigilant. “Together we bent the curve. And we aren’t stopping now. Wear a mask. Keep 6 feet apart. Wash hands. Stay smart,” he tweeted.

Parts of New York began slowly reopening last month after successfully “flattening the curve,” and New York City – once the U.S. epicenter of the pandemic – began reopening several weeks ago after an 80-day lockdown.
