April 13, 2020

More than 10,000 New Yorkers have died from new coronavirus, state data shows.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday that 671 New Yorkers died on Easter Sunday, driving the COVID-19 death toll to 10,056.

“This virus has a feeding frenzy,” Cuomo said. “The terrible news is as worse as it gets.”

The daily death toll repeatedly broke records last week, reaching 779 lives lost in a single day at its peak, Cuomo said.

New York State data shows that 6,898 city dwellers had died from COVID-19 as noon Sunday. There were 104,410 COVID-19 cases confirmed in New York City and 27,676 hospitalizations as of 5 p.m. Sunday, city data shows.

The New York governor said the death toll remained flat, “at a horrific level of pain and grief and sorrow.”

Cuomo also announced that net hospitalizations have reached a plateau at about 18,000, with about 2,000 people walking into New York hospitals every day.

“We’ve always been worried about lack of capacity,” Cuomo said. “This says take a deep breath.”
