New York surpassed 1,000 daily coronavirus cases for the first time since early June – an increase partially tied to the Hudson Valley and Brooklyn.
The concerning state figure comes as city officials, struggling to contain COVID-19 clusters in some spots, announced an uptick in virus cases in four new communities.
There were 1,005 new virus cases in the state Friday, or 1 percent of the 99,953 tested, Gov. Cuomo’s office said Saturday.
The last time the daily case count was that high was June 5 when 1,108 people tested positive for the virus.
There were 429 new cases in New York City where 1.1 per cent of the results came back positive. (NYPost)
