ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — On Thursday, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo said more than nine million COVID-19 tests have been done in New York State since the pandemic started.

On Wednesday, 76,813 tests were performed and only 757 of those were positive. That is a positive rate of 0.98%. New York State has been under 1% for the last 34 days.

“New Yorkers are the ones who have flattened the curve,” Governor Cuomo said. “Thanks to their hard work, for 34 straight days, our infection rate has remained below one percent. We have conducted over 9 million tests to date. That’s more per capita than any other state in the country and more than most countries on the globe. But we cannot go backwards. We must keep up the hard work and wear our masks, wash our hands, and socially distance.”

Thursday’s data is summarized briefly below:

  • Patient Hospitalization – 482 (+19)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 78
