The COVID Crisis: New York Coronavirus Death Toll Rises For 3rd Day In A Row

June 10, 2020

New York’s coronavirus death toll crept up for the third day in a row Wednesday, as the state reopens, and almost two weeks after police brutality protests drew crowds of thousands into the streets.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s office reported 53 people died from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, up from the 46 reported Tuesday and 39 reported Monday.

A total of 24,404 New Yorkers have lost their lives to the virus since it first hit the state in early March, state data shows.

The numbers have been on the rise since New York reported its lowest death toll Saturday with 35 lives lost to COVID-19.

At the height of the pandemic, in early April, New York lost about 700 people every day.

The state data does not specify where in New York those 53 people died, but notes hospitalizations decreased to 2,190 and ICU admittances decreased to 630.

In New York City, 17,225 people have died with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis and 4,705 likely died from the virus since the pandemic began, city data released Wednesday show.
