The strong effort from the state of New York to fight COVID-19 is once again yielding positive results.
The recent medical data has shown that for the first time in more than two brutal months, the state reported a daily COVID death count under 50.
The latest data has shown that only 48 New Yorkers has died from COVID-19 on Monday which is way lower compared to the previous days.
Sources said the daily COVID-19 death toll count has dropped 47% in a single week and appears to have started to nosedive after remaining stubbornly high in recent weeks.
Aside from the death toll, the count of new cases has also significantly dropped.
Based on the data from Gov. Hochul’s office, the state reported 2,348 new cases on Monday, the lowest single-day tally since late October.
“We are seeing drastic improvements in the data, and it is because of the hard work New Yorkers have been putting in to keep each other safe,” Hochul said in a statement on Monday.
Despite the drop in the number of death and new cases, Hochul also on Monday continued her calls for unvaccinated New Yorkers to get booster shots, which provide rugged protection against omicron.
“It’s critically important that everyone eligible get their booster or vaccination as soon as possible so we can continue our progress and enjoy a happy, healthy spring,” Hochul said.
