New York suffered another record day of coronavirus deaths, jumping to a total of 3,565, Governor Andrew Cuomo said at his daily press conference. Total deaths in New York City rose to 2,624, and the state’s total cases gained to almost 114,000.
“We’re not at the apex,” the governor said Saturday.
Cuomo said there are now concerns about infections on Long Island, which are rising at a faster pace.
“We’ve been saying, ‘Watch Long Island because it’s a fire spreading,’” he said “It’s been growing steadily.”
Cuomo said that 1,000 ventilators, used to treat the most acutely ill, are scheduled to arrive today from China. He said that Oregon had donated another 140 ventilators, as New York and New Jersey scramble for equipment for when the epidemic reaches its apex.
