New York State has a seven-day average Covid-19 positive of 0.44 percent, said Governor Andrew Cuomo, citing data from Hopkins University.
On Sunday, the State Department of Health announced that 383 new positive cases were detected out of 110,437 examinations, or just 0.35 percent.
“We are retreating Covid-19 across the state. New York has the lowest seven-day positive rate, but more vaccines will be needed to get us off the finish line,” Cuomo said.
The state plans to offer “exciting incentives” for vaccines, he added.
Cumo said more than two-thirds of New York adults, 67.2 percent, now have at least one dose of the vaccine, and 60 percent are fully vaccinated.
“I encourage all eligible individuals who have not yet been vaccinated to use the free $ 20 lottery ticket.”
Scholarships were also offered at New York State University and New York City Universities.
The number of new cases of coronavirus in the United States has not been seen since the first days of the epidemic, which is a encouraging decline, prompting some states to change their daily reporting of Covid-19 trends.
Covid-19-related infections, hospitalizations, and deaths have dropped dramatically since the winter shock, leading to the spread of the vaccine, which began in December.
Overall, 64 percent of American adults have now received at least one shot, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
During the week ending June 10, the United States reported 15,928 infections a day, down nearly half a և 94% in a month from nearly 251,085 in January, according to the Times of Hopkins University Financial Times analysis.
