By Jennifer Smith For, 21 April 2020:

New coronavirus hospitalizations on Monday across the state of New York were their lowest since March 25, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday as he revealed his plan to let some parts of the state reopen before others.

There were 1,308 new hospitalizations from COVID-19 across the state on Monday which is the lowest number since March 25.

Deaths were 481 which marks the second consecutive day that they have been less than 500. That has not happened since March 31 and April 1.

At his daily briefing on Tuesday, he said he would look at each area’s case count and infection rate and weigh it against their local capacity to cope with an outbreak.

It has by far the highest number of cases anywhere in the state with more than 130,000, but it has also passed its peak and is descending from it faster than other areas.

Cuomo will later go to the White House to speak with President Trump about the state’s necessity for federal help with ramping up antibody testing.

He said that while it is the states’ responsibility to carry out the tests once they get them, the federal government must step in to facilitate the international supply chain that mass testing relies upon.

At present, US labs and manufacturers cannot physically produce enough tests to get the country back to work because many of the chemicals they need come from overseas, namely China.

Cuomo said the federal government should step in to address that issue and allow the states to get on with carrying out and then processing the tests.

His announcement came as New York daily deaths were less than 500 for the second day in a row.

On Monday, 481 people died across the state. Hospitalizations continue to decrease as do the number of people being put on ventilators, but 1,300 new cases were confirmed.

Cuomo said on Tuesday that he would allow some parts of the state to reopen before others but he did not say which would get back to work first

‘We have to remember our calculus of good. Good, now, means not terrible but on an absolute scale, 1,300 people walking in the door with COVID in a single day in the state of New York… that would not be good news in any other context besides the context we are living in.

Cuomo did not specify which parts of the state he would allow to reopen first, but he did make a note of how the statistics in New York City far outweighed what is being seen anywhere else.

The strategy contradicts his earlier comments that he would apply a blanket rule to the entire state and work in conjunction with surrounding states to avoid people in one area that is in lockdown from traveling to another once it reopens and risking another spread.

At the moment, New York’s lockdown remains in place until May 15. He did not indicate whether any part of the state might be able to open before then.

‘The point is that different regions of the country have different curves. The virus does not hit at the same time at the same rate.

‘This state, we have very different regions within New York. New York City is one of the densest places on the globe.

‘You also have upstate New York and you see a variety across the country. We have a variety across the state. You have to watch each one of those individual curves and when does that region hit a high point and where is that.

‘Depending on that region’s curve is how long you have to calculate your strategy. How long are we on that plateau and how long is the descent from the plateau>

‘Downstate New York, it appears we are on the descent. But how quickly do we descend?’ he said.

‘We’re going to make reopening decisions on a regional bases based on that region’s facts and circumstances. In other words, just like some states will reopen before some states, it’s also true across the state.

‘North country has a totally different situation than New York City,’ he said.
