The number of coronavirus deaths in New York has passed 3,500, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) announced at a daily briefing Saturday, an increase of 630 in one day.
Cuomo said 10,841 new coronavirus cases have been reported in the state since Friday, a record one-day jump, pushing the total number of cases to 113,704.
The state had reported more than 100,000 confirmed cases on Friday — nearly twice as many as it had the week before.
The governor said Saturday that the total number of people hospitalized is 15,905 but noted that two-thirds of all people who have been hospitalized have been discharged.
