The State of New York reported 594 new deaths from the corona virus on April 5, lower than 630 cases recorded the day before, Governor Andrew Cuomo said at the daily news conference.
In total, New York state – the most heavily affected by the Covid-19 epidemic in the United States – recorded 4,195 deaths.
As President Donald Trump and other leaders warn of rising deaths, Cuomo said it was too early to say whether the outbreak had reached a peak in New York. He thinks this can be clarified in the coming week.
Mr. Cuomo noted that the deaths were leveled off for three days after a sharp rise. The number of deaths recorded on May 3 was 562.
The number of new hospitalizations fell to 574 on April 5 from 1,095 the day before, Mr. Cuomo said. The governor said 74% of the hospitalized people were discharged.
The state of New York has a total of 122,000 positive cases of the corona virus. New York City has 67,551 cases, an increase of 4,245 cases per day.
Covid-19 has appeared in more than 200 countries and territories with the focus of the US and European countries, after starting from China in December 2019. The number of global infections has exceeded 1.2 million and nearly 66,000 have died. The US is currently the world’s most heavily affected epidemic, with more than 9,000 deaths while the infection surpasses 300,000.
