"We're dealing with high numbers of COVID cases across the state as we move through the dark days of winter, and although I understand COVID fatigue has set in, we need New Yorkers to remember that we aren't out of the woods yet," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. "The vaccine is the weapon that ends the war, but we're locked in a footrace between its quick distribution and the spread of new cases."

There were 196,868 COVID-19 tests administered in New York on Tuesday, Jan. 12, according to Cuomo, resulting in 14,577 positive cases for a 7.40 percent infection rate.

There are now 8,929 COVID-19 patients hospitalized across the state, up three, while more than 1,500 are in ICU and 924 are intubated with the virus. There were 165 new COVID-19-related deaths reported in the past 24 hours.

Since the pandemic began in March last year, nearly 28 million New Yorkers have been tested for COVID-19, with 1,169,947 testing positive for the virus. There have been a total of 32,175 COVID-19-related deaths reported statewide.

"New Yorkers can get through this together, but it will require a willingness to take precautions not just for themselves, but for others," Cuomo added. "Wash your hands, wear a mask, and stay socially distanced. New York State is working to expand testing capacity and hospital capacity, but it will take all of us to get to the light at the end of the tunnel."
