Gov. Cuomo says 72% of new COVID positive cases in New York State are linked to the delta variant. However, he also adds 75% of adults in the state have been vaccinated.
Only 0.15% of New Yorkers have had a breakthrough infection.
The current COVID positivity rate in New York state is 2.28%, marking the first time in months it’s above 2%.
The 7-day average statewide is 1.88%.
The 7-day average in the Capital Region is now 2.47%, up from 2.44% on Sunday.
The 7-day average in the Mohawk Valley is now 1.24%, up from 1.11% on Sunday.
Sadly, another four people died.
