“To the county health departments
and local governments, I say,
focus your resources there,” Gov. Andrew
Cuomo said at a press briefi ng
Monday. “That is where we have the
greatest chance for advancement.”
The governor said that he would
“feel comfortable” lifting all remaining
pandemic restrictions, including
capacity restrictions, mask requirements,
and social distancing protocols,
once 70 percent of New Yorkers
have gotten vaccinated; the rate currently
sits at 68.6 percent.
As New York City saw its fi rst day
with no COVID-19 related deaths last
week, Mayor Bill de Blasio hailed the
milestone and urged city-dwellers tp
continue to get vaccinated.
“I really want to emphasize this,
you know, as of today, here’s the number
of vaccine doses. It’s astounding.
8,408,000 doses of vaccine given in
New York City. And that is New Yorkers
making a decision to protect themselves,
their family, their city,” Hizzoner
said. “That’s also a lot of great
people, health care workers, outreach
workers, you know, hospital workers
who have been there to vaccinate people
when they’re ready. And what this
means is because people made this
decision, we are consistently squeezing
COVID out of the city, and we’re
also seeing tremendous drops in the
number of hospitalizations. And
thank God that means we are losing
fewer and fewer people all the time.
And that is what we’ve been waiting
for, that we could get to this moment
we can actually see COVID being behind
City data shows that vaccinations
in the city peaked back on April 8,
when 116,510 were administered.
