Cuomo Warns of Rising Hospitalization Rates

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo warned Monday that Covid-19 hospitalizations could double in a month if the current rate of spread  continues.
 
Total COVID hospitalizations rose to 5,712, with 1,040 patients in ICU, up 31 from Saturday. Of them, 572 are intubated.  Another  83 New Yorkers died, including five in Suffolk County. A total of 2,118 people have died of the disease in the county.
 
“The fall and winter surge could lead to 11,000 people hospitalized with COVID and 3,500 additional fatalities in a month if the current rate continues. Please take this threat seriously. Yes, we have a vaccine—but we must be cautious and diligent in the days ahead to slow the spread as the vaccine distribution ramps up,” Cuomo said.
