On Tuesday, there were 34 COVID-19-related deaths across the state and by Wednesday, the seven-day average infection positivity rate was 2.33%, according to a release from Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office.
In Oneida County, there were 79 new cases and one virus-related death on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Hochul continued the call for COVID-19 vaccination.
“New Yorkers have fought long and hard against the COVID-19 pandemic, and although I know life is returning to normal for many vaccinated people, we can’t get complacent and forget that there are thousands of new infections every single day,” Hochul said in a statement. “We have the vaccine and can defeat this virus, but our success depends on getting more shots in arms. I’m urging everyone who’s eligible to get their vaccine right away to protect their communities and end the threat of COVID-19.”
