NOTE: Beginning June 24, 2022, the Vaccine data will be updated weekly on Fridays to align with CDC’s updated data refresh schedule. For additional information on COVID-19 Vaccination Data provided by CDC, see https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations_vacc-total-admin-rate-total.  

Important Note: HERDS data collection from health care facilities was paused due to the weekend from 7/16/2022-07/17/2022. Data from those days were submitted in Monday’s report. Where noted, totals include three days of cumulative data from 07/16/2022-07/18/2022. As a result, some data may appear higher than recent trends. Data affected is marked with an asterisk.

Governor Kathy Hochul today updated New Yorkers on the state’s progress combating COVID-19.

“As we continue to respond to new variants, we must remain vigilant and continue using the tools we have at our disposal to keep ourselves safe against and treat COVID-19,” Governor Hochul said. “Be sure to keep up to date on your vaccine and booster doses, and consult with your child’s pediatrician about getting them vaccinated as soon as possible. If you’re traveling or feel unwell, get tested, and if you do test positive, talk to your doctor about treatment options.”

 

Today’s data is summarized briefly below:

 

  • Cases Per 100k – 27.73
  • 7-Day Average Cases Per 100k – 35.43
  • Test Results Reported – 47,464
  • Total Positive – 5,420
  • Percent Positive – 11.04%**
  • 7-Day Average Percent Positive – 8.93%**
  • Patient Hospitalization – 2,628 (+167)
  • Patients Newly Admitted – 1,045*
  • Patients in ICU – 244 (+14)
  • Patients in ICU with Intubation – 80 (+6)
  • Total Discharges – 321,696 (+840)*
  • New deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS – 46*
  • Total deaths reported by healthcare facilities through HERDS – 56,832*

 

** Due to the test reporting policy change by the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and several other factors, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data — not percent positivity.

The Health Electronic Response Data System is a NYS DOH data source that collects confirmed daily death data as reported by hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities only.

Important Note: Effective Monday, April 4, the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is no longer requiring testing facilities that use COVID-19 rapid antigen tests to report negative results. As a result, New York State’s percent positive metric will be computed using only lab-reported PCR results. Positive antigen tests will still be reported to New York State and reporting of new daily cases and cases per 100k will continue to include both PCR and antigen tests. Due to this change and other factors, including changes in testing practices, the most reliable metric to measure virus impact on a community is the case per 100,000 data — not percent positivity.

 

  • Total deaths reported to and compiled by the CDC – 72,517

 

This daily COVID-19 provisional death certificate data reported by NYS DOH and NYC to the CDC includes those who died in any location, including hospitals, nursing homes, adult care facilities, at home, in hospice and other settings.
