Coronavirus New Highlights : 320 Deaths And ICU Admission In One Day

.320 coronavirus deaths in NYC in one day as hospitalizations and ICU admissions drop

Mayor de Blasio preached caution as New York City saw 320 people die of coronavirus on Wednesday even as hospitalizations for the disease decreased and public hospitals saw a drop in the number of patients in intensive care units.
There were also 2,519 new COVID-19 cases identified on Wednesday.
Even so, Hizzoner said the city is seeing progress in the indicators that will ultimately determine when coronavirus restrictions can be lifted and the local economy is reopened.
“This virus does not defeat itself, we have to defeat it, we have to keep doing the hard work,” he said at a briefing Thursday. “I want you to think of yourselves as people who have power, remarkable power.”
The number of people admitted to both public and private hospitals for suspected COVID-19 decreased to 227 on Tuesday, or 24 less than the total 251 new admissions on Monday. That number has also dropped 36% since April 12, when there were 355 new admissions.
There were 796 people in ICUs at 11 public hospitals on Tuesday, down from the 821 the day before, according to the mayor. That’s also a 6.4% decrease from the 850 people in public hospital ICUs on April 12.
“Yes there’s been real important progress,” de Blasio said. “But we’re still very much in this fight. We cannot forget what we’re up against.”
Citywide, 32% of those tested came back positive as of Tuesday, down slightly from 33% as of Monday. For tests conducted by the city’s Public Health Lab, 57% came back positive as of Tuesday, up a little from 54% the day before.
On April 12, 61% of those tested citywide were positive for COVID-19. And 84% of tests conducted by the Public Health Lab were positive for coronations on that date.
The city aims to see all indicators — new hospital admissions, ICU patients and percentage of positive tests — go down for 10 consecutive days.
