7 Million Tests in New York State
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced Sunday that 7 million diagnostic COVID-19 tests have been conducted in New York State and the percentage of positive cases is under one percent for the ninth day in a row.
“New York State is demonstrating that a response guided by science and data – not politics or opinion – is the only effective way to deal with this virus,” Cuomo said. “But, we must not become complacent and risk slipping backwards — everyone must remember to wear their masks, socially distance, wash their hands regularly, and stay New York Tough.”
