Gov. Cuomo Says COVID-19 Hospitalizations Are Leveling Out After New York Experiences Deadliest 24 Hours

The following article, Gov. Cuomo Says COVID-19 Hospitalizations Are Leveling Out After New York Experiences Deadliest 24 Hours, was first published on Flag And Cross.

According to new updates from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the number of hospitalizations due to coronavirus in his neck of the woods are beginning to level out after weeks of these facilities being flooded with patients suffering from the illness.

Cuomo made the announcement during a press conference he held on Tuesday, but despite the good news, he still strongly cautioned folk to keep social distancing and that following those guidelines must stay a top priority to help keep the number of cases in check.

“Right now, we are projecting that we are reaching a plateau in the total number of hospitalizations, and you can see the growth, and you see it starting to flatten,” Cuomo stated during the press conference.

“Again, this is a projection. It still depends on what we do. And what we do will affect those numbers. This is not an act of God that we are looking at. It’s an act of what society actually does,” Cuomo continued.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Cuomo said the number of people who required intubation has declined, leaving hospitals more sure about their capability to treat every patient without running out of beds. He explained, “We have started with the system of about 53,000 beds statewide up to about 90,000 available beds, so we have more than enough beds available.”

“The bad news is 5,489 New Yorkers have lost their lives to this virus. That is up from 4,758. That is the largest single-day increase,” Cuomo said. “And we talk about numbers, but that is 731 people who we lost. Behind every one of those numbers is an individual, it’s a family, it’s a mother, and it’s a father, it’s a sister, it’s a brother. So, a lot of pain again today for many New Yorkers, and they are in our thoughts and prayers.”

As of the time of this writing, New York has more than 138,000 cases of this disease.

This is good news, but like the governor said, it’s crouched in the horrible realization that 731 more people have left our world, leaving behind grieving families and loved ones whose lives will never ever be the same after this nightmare is over.

Prayers and thoughts go out to those who have lost someone special to COVID-19.
