Covid-19 hospital admissions in New York State reach seven-month low | Local news

Gov. Kathy Hochul said Sunday that New York State had the lowest number of admissions due to Covid-19 than it has had in seven months.

A total of 900 New Yorkers – including 64 in western New York – remained hospitalized with the virus, Hochul said, which is the lowest number of admissions since Aug. 2. Twelve New Yorkers – including one in Chautauqua County – died of Covid-19 Saturday, she added.

Across the state, 2,013 New Yorkers tested positive for Covid-19 Saturday, including 61 in Erie County, 28 in Niagara, four in Cattaraugus, three in Chautauqua and one in Allegany.

“New York has made tremendous progress in combating the pandemic, but we must continue to do the right thing and protect ourselves and our communities through vaccination,” Hochul said in a press release.

State data show that 95 percent of Empire State adults have had at least one vaccine dose. The state’s overall Covid-19 positivity on Sunday was 1.68%.
