ALBANY – A total of 1,998 new cases of the coronavirus in the Hudson Valley on Monday were reported to the state health department.
There were also 22 new deaths reported.
“New York is continuing to fight COVID-19 across the state by increasing our testing capacity, ensuring the hospitals have enough space, and vaccinating New Yorkers as quickly as possible,” Governor Cuomo said on Tuesday. “The numbers over the past two weeks suggest you could see a flattening after a spike from Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year. We said we would hope ad aspire for a flattening in late January, and you could argue that you start to see a flattening now. Positivity in almost every region is down from the high during this holiday spike.”
