Another 280 New Yorkers die of Covid-19 as deaths continue to drop in world’s epicenter

New York saw 280 die of over the past 24 hours as deaths continue to drop in the world’s epicenter for the virus.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the latest deaths on Sunday and added that new cases of Covid-19, hospitalization rates and ICU admissions are all on the decline as well. Sunday’s death toll comes after the state suffered 299 fatalities on Saturday and 289 on Friday. 251 of the latest deaths occurred in hospitals and 29 were residents in nursing homes.

‘The overall direction is good even though it;s very painful,’ the governor said.

Cuomo went on to urge New Yorkers to reflect on the lessons learned during the outbreak, which has killed at least 24,648 in the state and infected over 300,000 as of Sunday.

‘I think we should be…learning the lessons of what we just went through,’ Cuomo said.

‘There are people talking about a second wave, a possible mutation of the virus, so caution would suggest that as we go through this we learn at the same time to make sure that, if we have to go through this again, or if this a prolonged situation that we are learning from what we’ve been implicating.’

To control the outbreak in the state, New York officials have conducted more than 15,000 antibody tests, which is the largest sample size in the country. Just over 12% of those tested were positive for antibodies, meaning they likely already had the virus. However, that number was considerably higher in New York City, where about 20% of people tested positive for antibodies.

On Sunday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio asked that people continue to abide by social distancing orders as warm weather comes this week, prompting many to flock to the city’s parks on Saturday.

‘We’re not going to tolerate even small groups of people not practicing social distancing,’ the mayor said.

According to New York City police said 43 summonses were issued in city parks on Saturday.
