(WSYR-TV) — Onondaga County had 5,613 residents test positive for COVID-19 and eight deaths over the weekend, County Executive Ryan McMahon tweeted Monday.

Six men, four in their 60s and two in their 80s and 90s, passed away, along with two women in their 60s and 80s, according to McMahon. There were also two nursing home deaths.

As for the those needing hospitalization due to COVID-19, there were 91 admissions over the weekend.

“(We) continue to see decoupling of active cases and hospitalizations (8% active turn into hospital now trending 2.5%) but high cases will continue to drive more hospitalizations,” McMahon tweeted.

Of the 11,532 active cases, 89% are 59 years of old and younger. 219 Onondaga County residents are in the hospital with 38 in the ICU, McMahon says 71% of those patients are unvaccinated.

Meanwhile, Governor Kathy Hochul updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19 Monday.

“We have the tools to fight this winter surge, and how quickly we turn the corner will depend on our actions,” Governor Hochul said“Please get your second dose if you haven’t already, and get the booster if you’re eligible. Parents and guardians, please get your children vaccinated. Wear a mask to help stop the spread, and stay home if you aren’t feeling well. Let’s learn from the lessons of the past and finally put this winter surge behind us.”

Given the rate of spread of Omicron, it is more meaningful to report the percentage of Omicron variants as uploaded to the public COVID-19 sequence databases, than to report counts of individual cases. This percentage can then be related to the total positive COVID case count in the state. This process is consistent with how the New York State Department of Health has reported on all other variants online: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-variant-data 

Data today in the GISAID database, the largest repository of SARS-CoV-2 sequences in the world, show the Omicron variant comprised 95.9% of uploaded sequences from NYS between 12/27/21 and 1/9/22. This indicates that Omicron continues to circulate at an extremely high level across the state although there may be regional differences. These cannot be measured with statistical precision due to low sample numbers in some areas and the inherent time lag from sample collection to testing, sequencing and data upload.

Yesterday, 135 New Yorkers died due to COVID-19, bringing the total compiled by HERDS to 49,620. A geographic breakdown is as follows, by county of residence:
