Suffolk Reports 17 More Covid-19 Deaths

Suffolk County reported 17 more Covid-19 deaths, the highest in New York State, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Saturday. Statewide, there were 128 new Covid-19 deaths.

“We have the vaccine, and that is good news, but it will be months before we’ve reached critical mass, making it as important as ever that we do not let COVID fatigue get the best of us,” Cuomo said. “The state is working around the clock with the medical community to not only ensure vaccines are distributed as quickly and efficiently as possible, but to also continue growing bed capacity so hospitals do not become overwhelmed. As daunting as it may seem after all this time, it’s critical that the rest of us remain tough and keep up our efforts to slow the spread.”
