NEW YORK - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says New York’s death toll from coronavirus has topped 10,000, with hospitals still seeing 2,000 new patients a day. The death tally hit the milestone only about a month after the state recorded its first death.
The state tallied 671 new deaths on Sunday. It was the first time in a week the daily toll dipped below 700.
Still, the governor noted Monday that people are still dying at a “horrific level of pain and grief and sorrow.”
Meanwhile, New York City's health department says the city is in danger of running out of swabs for COVID-19 tests and should test only hospitalized patients.
