NYC coronavirus cases reach nearly 130,000, death toll at 8,811

Nearly 130,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus have now been documented in the five boroughs of New York, city statistics revealed on Sunday.

An additional 3,420 diagnoses were made between 2 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday, raising the total number to 129,788 — up from 126,368.

The tally of confirmed coronavirus fatalities, meanwhile, rose to 8,811, while the number of “probable” deaths attributed to the disease hit 4,429, with respective increases of 363 and 165.

Combined, the two figures now stand at a staggering 13,240 New Yorkers.

The total number of patients hospitalized in the five boroughs is now approximately 34,602, according to City Hall.

The Big Apple stats suggest a trend similar to that revealed by state figures released earlier Sunday, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that New York is “past the high point” — but risks a relapse without diligence.
