Coronavirus deaths in NY state continue to rise but hospitalizations are down

The number of newly hospitalized patients in NY dropped for a second day, to 200, even though the state posted an increase in deaths by 799 for a third consecutive day, taking the total to over 7000. Gov. Andrew Cuomo described the death count as a lagging indicator reflecting the loss of people sickened earlier in the outbreak, and said it was a sign that social distancing was succeeding.
