Coronavirus cases in New York drop after alarming uptick

New York’s coronavirus cases fell again Sunday, just two days after there were an alarming new 918 infections, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

The new cases statewide dropped to 533, closer to the state’s numbers before the spike on Friday, which was the highest since mid-June.

New infections were at 391 on June 29, then jumped to 918 on Friday, before falling again to 726 on July 4.

Eight coronavirus-related deaths were recorded on Sunday, bringing the statewide numbers to 32,157.

The new figures come after Cuomo encouraged New Yorkers on the Fourth of July to continue wearing masks.

“This July 4th remember — real patriots wear masks,” Cuomo wrote on Twitter.
