Looks like the COVID-19 prevention efforts of New York City are working well.
The latest data has shown that NYC’s COVID-19 positivity rate is on its way down and continues to be under statewide rates for the virus.
Gov. Kathy Hochul on Saturday revealed that the statewide positivity rate, measured on a seven-day average, was 3.28 percent on Friday.
Hochul said based on the data New York City had the lowest rate in the state of 2.39 percent on Friday.
Hochul explained of the 157,302 test results reported statewide Friday, 5,030 — or 3.2 percent — were positive.
The lady governor added that there were 28 deaths reported statewide, with 12 of those coming in the five boroughs.
“COVID is still out there, and we cannot get complacent because we all know what it’s capable of,” Hochul said.
