Looks like the NY mask mandates and other COVID-19 measures have already yielded positive results.
New York governor Kathy Hochul on Monday said New York State’s daily case count has dropped by 80% and its hospitalization tally sink by almost 40%.
Based on the latest health data of the state of New York it was also learned that less than 6% of COVID test results statewide came back positive in each of the past three days.
The data also showed that hospitalizations and deaths, which trail behind cases, have begun to take a nosedive.
“New Yorkers are doing the right thing — getting vaccinated and receiving their booster, wearing their masks, and staying home when they’re sick,” Hochul said in a statement.
“The vaccine is safe, effective, free and readily available all over the state,” Hochul added.
In view of the effectiveness of vaccines and booster shots, Hochul called on New Yorkers to get immunized now because it is the best weapon for this pandemic.
