New York state reported its first decline in daily deaths from coronavirus on Sunday after it reported 594 new coronavirus deaths, Governor Andrew Cuomo said.
However, the state has had 4,159 fatalities so far.
As President Donald Trump and other leaders warned of rising death tolls, Cuomo said it was too early to say if the outbreak had reached a peak in New York — the center of the nation’s outbreak.
New York City’s cases rose to 67,551, up 4,245 in a day, Mayor Bill de Blasio also said he saw signs that “are a little hopeful for sure.”
He said the city would immediately report if a corner had been turned in the epidemic.
