The New York Post reports:
New York’s coronavirus death toll surged to 3,565 Saturday, a staggering increase of 630 in the past 24 hours that’s the “worst yet,” according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who warned that the state has not even hit the apex of cases.
“By the numbers, we’re not yet at the apex, ” Cuomo said at a morning briefing, as he announced that the Chinese government will “facilitate” the delivery of 1,000 sorely needed ventilators to New York later in the day.
Cuomo said the apex of cases in the state is expected within four to eight days. The total number of people infected in the state rose by a new high of 10,841 to 113,704.
