CNY’s positive case percentage remains highest in New York State

Coronavirus

NEW YORK (WSYR-TV) — The governor’s office Monday updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combatting COVID-19.

“The Delta variant is a very serious threat, and we see that in the numbers here in New York and across the nation,” Governor Cuomo said. “When this virus first wreaked havoc on our communities, we showed the world what it means to be ‘New York Tough’ – as well as loving and smart. We got through the worst of this crisis by being loving and caring to one another, but now we need to be smart and make sure everyone gets vaccinated. If you still need to get your shot, please do so immediately. The faster you do that, the faster we will defeat this beast and put COVID behind us once and for all.”
