CNBC News reports:
The death toll from the coronavirus in New York state has topped 10,000, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday, calling that tally a “horrific level of pain and grief and sorrow.” There were 671 new deaths recorded in the state on Easter Sunday, bringing the total fatalities across the state to 10,056, Cuomo said.
“We’re controlling the spread,” Cuomo said. “The worst is over. The curve continues to flatten,” Cuomo said, referring to the rate of spread of Covid-19 in the Empire State.
Still, there continue to be “about 2,000 people per day are walking in [to hospitals] or being diagnosed with covid, so you’re still increasing the hospital population,” the governor said. Those increases are being largely offset by hospital discharges, he added.
We need to stay the course.
We have flattened the curve by our actions.
New Yorkers rose to the challenge to protect one another.
We are #NewYorkTough.
