State Reports 8 More Covid-19 Deaths in Suffolk

New York State reported another 115 Covid-19 deaths Sunday, bringing the statewide total in the epidemic to 29,511.

“As we near the end of the holiday season, New York remains locked in a footrace between the vaccine’s quick distribution and COVID-19’s continued spread,” Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said. “It has been a tough year and we still have several tough months ahead, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel and we will make it there if we all do our part to slow the spread. New York is working closely with the medical community to not only administer the vaccine, but to continue growing capacity as well.”
