New York State has recorded 67 coveted deaths related to its deadliest day since May Wednesday.
The highest was after May 29, when 67 people died. Before cases and deaths began to rise again, the number of daily deaths was very low on both August 30 and September 20.
Andrew Cuomo released complex figures during his Thanksgiving Corona virus conference on Thursday, in which he also unveiled a ‘winter plan’ in anticipation that cases would increase in the colder months.
“Thanks for what we’re going to do this weekend and next week, we’re now going to work on a winter plan,” Cuomo said. ‘Experts around the world all say the same thing: there are stages to this virus, and your plan must change as the stages change.’
The government will have to evaluate the impact of the holiday celebrations on its plan, Cuomo said: ‘There are many theories about how bad the increase will be after Thanksgiving, but they all show an increase after Thanksgiving.
“We see an increase in air passengers, we see an increase in car passengers, and we know the rate of infection is high in social activity,” he continued.
Government Andrew Cuomo has released a ‘winter plan’ to deal with the virus in anticipation of the second wave of COVID-19.

Cuomo, who released the details of the project, said he would prioritize keeping schools open, especially for kindergarten students up to eighth grade.
The governor will continue the old ‘microcluster’ approach for months, with some areas being treated as yellow, orange or red zones depending on their infection rates.
‘We are going to be with the micro-cluster approach in the winter plan because those goals are spreading, which minimizes the economic impact and it emphasizes individual and social accountability and responsibility. So it works well, ” he said.
However, this time Guomo said it would add new factors to the formula, including hospital admission rates, how many hospital beds there are in a given area, and how much of the selected surgery is available.
The infection rate in a place where there is a shortage of hospital beds is lower than the infection rate in a place with hospital beds. So Guomo explained that this is one of the exercises we are doing now.
Across New York State on Thursday, based on 200,000 trials, the overall infection rate was 3.1 percent, Long Island 3.3 percent, and New York City 2.5 percent.

As for the schools, the governor said, ‘The government intends to keep the schools open and keep them open by setting a safe positive ratio. All data suggests that schools are safer than the surrounding community. ‘
Part of the equation in keeping schools open is constantly being tested in schools, he said.
‘We need a consistent test rate in schools,’ Cuomo continued. “In other words, if we want schools to stay open, it has to be a one-size-fits-all test that local school districts can offer in the long run … you have to reach winter.”
In addition, Guomo said it should balance the number of tests in schools, the number of tests in nursing homes, and the number of tests assigned to essential workers.
Public schools in New York City were closed indefinitely on Nov. 19, with the infection rate hitting 3 percent, the gateway to such action set by Mayor Bill de Blasio in September. He said Wednesday he will announce next week a plan on how to reopen schools in the coming weeks.
The third component of Cuomo’s plan shifts the focus to developing a ‘fair and effective’ vaccine distribution plan.
Details will be shared in the coming days, Guomo said, adding that the state is currently in talks with the local government about its winter plan.
On Thursday, Cumo said the overall infection rate was 3.1 percent, based on 200,000 trials across New York State, and 3.3 percent on Long Island and 2.5 percent in New York City.
In all, 3,056 people have been hospitalized with the virus, and 67 have died – the highest in the state since May 29.
‘We know what’s going on, the numbers tell the same story because we’ve seen the film in New York and we’ve seen the film all over the country. The positive is rising, more people are getting sick, more people are going to the hospital, more people are going into the ICU, more people are being admitted, and the death toll is rising, ‘Guomo said.
‘Compared to other parts of the country, New York State is performing even better,’ he continued.
During the conference, Guomo overturned a Supreme Court ruling late Wednesday that he had imposed on religious gatherings in New York in a controversy over the Covit-19 restrictions in conjunction with religious organizations.
‘This is irrelevant from any practical impact, because the zone they were talking about was already important – it expired last week. So I think this is an opportunity for the court to express its philosophy and politics. It will not have any practical effect, ‘said Guomo.
‘As for religious meetings, look, I am a former altar boy. Catholics, Catholic grammar school, Catholic high school, Jesuits in college, so I fully respect religion, if there is a time in life when we need it, now is the time, but we want to make sure people are equally safe. That’s the balance we’re trying to hit. ‘
Previously 620,000 cases of corona virus have been reported since the outbreak in March in New York, the center of the United States, and 26,549 people have died.
