NEW YORK — COVID-19 infection rates for tested New York state residents dipped below 10% for a second day in a row — a trend hailed by Gov. Kathy Hochul on Saturday as “extraordinary progress.”
Of nearly 300,000 COVID-19 test results reported, 9.23% were positive, the state data showed. The data showed the downward trend was evident across the state.
“We are below 10% positivity rate for the second day in a row. This is extraordinary progress,” Hochul said in statement Saturday.
“As we continue to see numbers trend downward, let’s also continue to do the right thing. Wash your hands, get the vaccine if you haven’t already, get the booster dose, and wear a mask. We will continue to see this downward trend in other parts of the state soon.”
According to the state data released by the governor, as of Friday the number of hospitalizations also declined, along with the number of patients needing intensive care unit treatment. In all, 179 new deaths were reported.
