Covid-19 Deaths Rise; Cuomo Has Winter Plan for Epidemic

New York State recorded 67 Covid-19 deaths, including six more in Suffolk County, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday.

Statewide, 217,721 COVID-19 test results were reported, a record, with a positive rate of 3.18 percent. In focus zones, the rate is 4.9 percent.

Cuomo also outlined his winter plan for dealing with the epidemic, saying that the state would continue to focus on its micro-cluster approach, adding extra assessments, to limit economic shutdowns; emphasize the effort to keep schools open and  expand testing in schools, and develop a vaccine distribution plan.

“The winter plan is also going to develop a vaccine distribution plan that does it fairly and effectively and prioritizes the vaccines in the most judicious way,” Cuomo said. 

He urged residents to be careful not to contribute to the epidemic. “The spread is going to be from pre-symptomatic people who don’t even know they have the virus. It’s not that they’re going to be malicious. It’s going to be accidental and involuntary. So what appears safe is no longer safe in this crazy world,” he said.

In Huntington, 11 peoople have died of Covid-19 since July, Town Clerk Andrew Raia said Tuesday. Four of those deaths occurred at Huntington Hospital; the rest at assisted-living facilities, bringing the total in Huntington since March to 515.
