On Friday, 84 deaths from the coronavirus were recorded by the state, down from 109 the day before. The state's daily death toll has hovered above 100 for the past week.
At its worst point in early April, the state recorded nearly 800 deaths for several consecutive days.
Cuomo said that in April when the state was seeing “hundreds and hundreds” of deaths each day, a public health official told him that once the state reaches under 100 deaths a day he could “breath a sigh of relief.”
"In my head, I was always looking to get under 100... for me, it's just a sign that we're making real progress,” Cuomo said at a daily press briefing Saturday. “Although, under 100 doesn’t do anything for those 84 families that are feeling the pain.”
