Friday Was a Horrific Day for Coronavirus in New York

New York had a grim day on Friday, but the worst is yet to come.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday that the total number of coronavirus deaths in the state has risen to 3,565, up 630 deaths from the number reported on Friday. That’s the largest one-day increase to date.

Less than a week ago, fewer than 1,000 people had died. Deaths in the state have more than tripled in under a week.

There are more 113,000 confirmed cases in the state now, up from about 102,000 on Friday. Nearly 16,000 people are currently hospitalized, the governor said. Of those hospitalizations, 4,126 patients were in intensive care, an increase of nearly 400 Friday.

“We’re not at the apex,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo. “We’re getting closer,” he added, noting that different models indicate the state is between a few days and two weeks away from deaths and infections peaking.

As it prepares to hit that apex, New York is accepting donations of ventilators from around the country and the world. China is sending 1,000 ventilators, set to arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday. The state of Oregon sent another 140 ventilators. Cuomo has said that New York will need 30,000 ventilators to handle the influx of patients.
