McMahon tweeted out the news Tuesday afternoon. He mentioned the two deaths were women in their 80s and 90s. 224 residents are in the hospital with 41% in intensive care. Of the patients in the ICU, McMahon says 67% are unvaccinated and 62% of the new 34 admissions are also unvaccinated. 

Concern for pediatric cases of COVID-19 is on the rise. Here in Onondaga County, four of the 224 residents in the hospital are under the age of 18. 

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

“The data we are seeing on new infections offers a glimmer of hope that New Yorkers’ discipline in fighting the winter surge is paying off,” Governor Hochul said. “We are getting through this, but we must stay vigilant and not take our hard-won progress for granted. We know what works – make sure you and your loved ones are vaccinated and boosted, wear a mask, and exercise caution in indoor public spaces so we can finally leave this pandemic in the past.”
