There were 212,580 COVID-19 tests administered in New York on Jan. 13, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, resulting in 13,661 positive cases for a 6.42 percent positive infection rate, down nearly a full point from the day before.

There are now 8,823 COVID-19 patients hospitalized across the state, down more than 100, while more than 1,500 are in ICU and 956 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, more than 28 million New Yorkers have been tested for COVID-19, with 1,183,608 testing positive for the virus. There have been a total of 32,379 COVID-19-related deaths reported statewide.

"New York is pushing forward to conduct more tests, add to hospital beds and make it easier to get the COVID-19 vaccine across the state, but we need New Yorkers to stay vigilant and take safety precautions as the virus is still spreading," Cuomo said. "Washing hands, wearing masks and social distancing are vital tools New Yorkers can use to stay safe, and local governments are bound to enforce state public health law.

"We're moving through a difficult period in our history, and I know COVID fatigue has set in and New Yorkers crave normalcy, but we will get through this together and come out on the other side."
