New York also reported more than 28,000 new Covid-19 cases, recording five daily cases in six days.
Another 28,924 cases were reported to the government, with cases appearing on December 21, governor Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday.
This comes at a cost of about 115 per 100,000 people, Hochul told a news conference. “This bug is moving; it’s going straight, ”he added.
The daily population in New York has risen to 20,000 on December 16 for the first time since the outbreak began and remains at an all-time high, according to the state health department. The most recent figure is more than the record 23,391 reported on December 19.
The most recent increase in coronavirus cases in New York is across the US designed primarily with the new version of Omicron. Za 73 percent of the new Covid-19 cases in the US within the last week of December 18 is said to have been linked to Omicron, according to a report this week from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This makes it even more difficult for the US.
The number of Omicron cases is much higher than the national average in the CDC-selected area including New York. In the week ending December 18, Omicron reportedly made 92 percent of cases in the agency’s “Region 2”, including New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
“It’s not the number of people with the virus that makes me sleep at night, it’s the number that ends up in the hospital,” Hochul said in a statement. He also mentioned the decision in recent weeks to suspend selected operations in public hospitals and the need for nursing homes to shoot Covid-19 as one way to try to protect the health system and reduce the risk of overweight. .
Hochul said the number of Covid-related hospitals in the state was “increasing” but, at 4,452, it was two-thirds of what it was a year ago.
