Virus death toll drops to 5 in NY, once the USA epicenter

Andrew Cuomo

Earlier in the week, Cuomo, along with the governors of New Jersey and CT, implemented a 14-day quarantine for travelers arriving from high-risk states based on the same 10% positivity rate threshold.

The order applies to anyone who is employed in New York State and voluntarily travels to states with infection rates of 10 per cent or more.

"Employees will forgo their paid sick leave benefits from New York's COVID-19 paid sick leave law if they engage in non-essential travel to any state that has a positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents, or higher than a 10 percent test positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average", a release from the governor's office states.

The states impacted, according to COVID-91 infection rate data from Johns Hopkins University as of Sunday, are Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Nevada, South Carolina, Utah, and Texas. The number of people who go to hospitals increases or decreases.

"New Yorkers have controlled the spread of this unprecedented virus by being smart and disciplined, and our progress to date is illustrated by the current low numbers of new cases and hospitalizations", Governor Cuomo said.

'If we are going to maintain the progress we've seen, we need everyone to take personal responsibility, Cuomo said in a statement, Business Insider reports. On Saturday, less than 1% of tests administered came back positive.

The state saw 616 additional coronavirus cases, bringing the statewide total to 392,539.

Across the country, there have been more than 2.4 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 and more than 125,000 death attributed to the virus. A lot less of a celebration of what he did in NY than an admission - nationally - that the principle put ahead by the White Home of how to cope with the pandemic was flat erroneous.

The event was a drive-in graduation ceremony for Horace Greeley High School held at the Chappaqua train station on June 20, officials said.

In one letter to the chairmen of the Committees on Health; Oversight, Analysis, and Investigation; and Aging, a group of 14 Republican Assembly members asked for a review of the state's policies, decisions and protocols they say fell short.

Cuomo also previously issued an order to stop visitors from states where new coronavirus infections are surging.
