For the first time in almost 4 months in New York, not a single death from a coronavirus was recorded in a day. This is evidenced by preliminary data released by the Department of Health on Sunday, July 12.
According to statistics, Saturday was the first day since March 13, when in the Big Apple no deaths from COVID-19 were reported. Prior to this, two alleged deaths became known on Friday, July 10. “Now the number of [sick and dead] is kept at a stable low level,” Governor Andrew Cuomo commented on the statistics, “but it depends only on us whether this will continue.” “What is happening throughout the country is extremely alarming. The safety of New Yorkers depends on their willingness to wear masks, maintain social distance and wash their hands – as well as the determination of local authorities to comply with security measures. ” The first New Yorker died of coronavirus on March 11th. To date, the mortality rate from the virus is 18, 669 people.
