On Thursday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul revealed that COVID-19 is still surging in the Big Apple.

Hochul said more than 10,000 new positive cases were reported in the most recent 24 hours as the ultra-contagious BA.2 sub-variant of omicron continues to spread fast.

She said the statewide positivity rate stood at 7.53%, above the seven-day average and a sign that numbers are still rising.

She called on New Yorkers to be vaccinated and boosted and to wear masks to stop the surge.

“We have the tools to protect against and treat this virus — let’s use them,” Hochul said.

“By using these tools, we can continue to move forward safely through this pandemic,” Hochul added.

Moreover, Hochul said some 2,153 people were hospitalized with COVID-19, about a 1% increase from the day before.

Hochul added that 21 New Yorkers died, raising the total grim toll from the pandemic in the state to 55,557.
