Three new deaths from COVID-19 as 75% of ICU patients are unvaccinated in Onondaga County

ONONDAGA COUNTY (WSYR-TV) — A week out of the Thanksgiving holiday and Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon believes we feel the effects of residents visiting with loved ones.

McMahon announced on Thursday that three residents have died as a result of COVID-19. A man in his fifties and two women in their seventies and eighties; there was no word on whether or not any of them had underlying conditions.

“We are seeing the effects of Thanksgiving and are likely to see an increase in the number of cases in the coming days. It is critical that we stay home when we are sick and get tested, get vaccinated and get your booster shot. Our actions by today will have an impact in 7-10 days, let’s stop this increase.”

Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon

The incentive to get vaccinated comes because, according to McMahon, 75% of those in the ICU in Onondaga County have not been vaccinated.

Meanwhile, state governor Kathy Hochul has briefed New Yorkers on the state’s progress in the fight against COVID-19.

“We are closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and the emergence of the Omicron variant, which was detected in a visitor to New York City. Let me be clear: this is no cause for concern.” said Governor Hochul. “I want all New Yorkers to know that their state government is prepared for this. Thanks to the life-saving tools at our disposal, such as vaccines and boosters, we have the tools in our arsenal to fight this pandemic. I urge every New Yorker to take the necessary steps to keep themselves and their communities safe: get vaccinated, get a boost, and wear a mask.
