New York COVID cases increased by more than 1,000 percent
New York State reports ten times more cases of COVID per day.
Governor Andrew Cuomo briefed New Yorkers on the state’s progress in the fight against COVID-19 on Sunday. 2.68 percent of the tests came back positive and the state’s average seven-day positive result percentage rose to 2.4 percent.
“This virus has always been unpredictable, and in the face of the Delta variant, our hard-earned progress is only as good as our determination to build on it,” Cuomo said.

Cuomo confirmed that 2,516 tests came back positive in the past 24 hours, out of 93,818 tests. On July 25, Cuomo reported 1,296 new cases of COVID. Cuomo has reported more than 2,000 new cases of COVID every day since Tuesday.
On Saturday, July 31, Cuomo reported 3,050 new cases. About a month ago, on June 28, Cuomo reported 275 new cases. In just one month, daily COVID cases have increased by more than 1,000% in New York City.
“New Yorkers have fought long and hard and sacrificed a lot to get to where we are today – where we don’t just survive but live life,” Cuomo said. “But our fight is not over, and we know it because the Delta variant continues to infect more and more people, especially those who are still unvaccinated.
Cuomo again urged all eligible New Yorkers to get vaccinated. According to Cuomo, 75.4% of all New Yorkers 18 and older have received at least one vaccine while 68.6% have completed their vaccine series. 63.1% of all eligible New Yorkers have at least one dose of the vaccine.
“The vaccine is free, safe and effective – and our most powerful weapon in this ongoing fight. If you are still not vaccinated, you remain vulnerable and it is essential that you receive your vaccine as quickly as possible,” a Cuomo said.
