In New York, 4200 people died from coronavirus, but Cuomo saw a “glimmer of hope”
The number of coronavirus victims in New York has risen to 4200. At the same time, state authorities announced a decrease in the number of new patients and the emergence of a “glimmer of hope” that the situation would soon improve. This publication writes "Voice of America".
A glimpse of hope
In the state of New York over the past day, a slight decrease in the number of new deaths from coronavirus has been recorded. This gives little hope that the spread of the disease will slow down. This was announced on Sunday, April 5, by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
At the same time, the number of victims in the state increased to almost 4200.
The governor believes that it is too early to claim that the virus pandemic has peaked. “Perhaps we came very close to the peak, or this peak may be a plateau, and we may be on this plateau now,” Cuomo said.
He also added that it is impossible to draw conclusions only on the basis of daily changes. To see the pattern, you must continue to monitor the situation for about four days.
Number of patients
As of April 5, there were 594 new cases of COVID-19 infection reported in New York State. A day earlier, on April 4, 630 coronavirus-related diseases that had subsequently died were reported. The number of people admitted to the intensive care unit and the number of intubations also decreased. The governor also said that more and more patients are discharged from hospitals.
The number of deaths, as New York City authorities later specified, also decreased. So, as of 16:45 on Sunday, April 5, 218 people died, for comparison: 4 died on the evening of April 387, a day earlier - 305.
On this occasion, Cuomo expressed cautious optimism. At the same time, he urged New Yorkers to remain vigilant and to continue to comply with social distance recommendations.
The governor also emphasized that the coronavirus is indeed dangerous, calling it an "effective killer." He believes that particularly vulnerable people should remain isolated and take protective measures.
It is worth noting that New Yorkers themselves increasingly adhere to the rules of self-isolation and social distance. As of Sunday, when New York entered a critical phase of the epidemic, as its authorities described, less and less people met on the streets of the city. Those who decided to go out covered their faces with scarves and bandanas, listening to the calls of the authorities. A week earlier, this was much less common.
Health care system
In turn, the mayor of Bill de Blasio said that the supply of mechanical ventilation devices exceeded previous forecasts. However, he added that the city still needs these devices.
Speaking about the number of patients, he did not talk about a turning point in the crisis. He only noted that he saw "a few encouraging signs." “But I think it's too early to talk about it. Let's hope and pray, but we are not at this point yet, ”added Bill de Blasio.
