Governor Cuomo Phones In NYS COVID Progress For October 15, 2020

Coronavirus in NY: Positive test rate in cluster areas dips below 5%

Coronavirus in NY: Positive test rate in cluster areas dips below 5%

An Oct. 6 order by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shut down non-essential businesses in targeted "red zone" areas where infections have spiked, including some Brooklyn neighborhoods.

That's down from recent days, when the positivity rate has been above 5% in those clusters, but still a far cry from the statewide positivity rate of 1.09%.

These were the details of the news Catholics, Jews say NY virus restrictions violate religious rights for this day.

Movie theaters outside of New York City will be allowed to reopen October 23 after a months-long hiatus spurred by the coronavirus, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday.

Despite the declines, the positive test percentages in the clusters are still much higher than other areas of the state.

The coronavirus infection rate has been creeping up in NY, though it still remains well below the rates in most other states.

Statewide, the positive test rate was 1.25% on Thursday, up from 1.09% the day before.

Alexander Zverev sets up final against Felix Auger Aliassime in Cologne
As a player you know you're happy when your shots are going where you want them to go, and that's really how I felt today". I didn't feel like I played so bad, so I kept believing", Auger-Aliassime said.

WXXI's Karen DeWitt reports that Gov. Andrew Cuomo is arguing that COVID-19 hot spots in NY should not count against the state's overall low infection rate. The positivity rate outside the hotspot clusters is below 1%.

"We have flare ups because in this state we have a microscope, and the other states don't have a microscope", Cuomo said. "As we go through the fall and into the winter and cases continue to rise across the country, it's going to take the work of all New Yorkers to maintain our progress".

At a three-and-half-hour hearing, US District Court Judge Nicholas Garaufis said he hoped to rule by today on a request by Brooklyn's Roman Catholic diocese for a preliminary injunction voiding the restrictions. Cuomo has said much of the increase in hospitalizations can be traced to the clusters the state is tracking.

Cuomo's arguments are reminiscent of those of President Trump, who said in September that the nation's infection rate would be lower, if you did not count the number of cases in Democratic led, or blue states.

Hospitalizations have also been on the rise in the state.

Ten more people died due to the virus in the state on Thursday.
