Governor Cuomo said things are stable as he released the latest numbers on coronavirus cases in New York state on Friday.

There were eight more coronavirus deaths in the state Thursday.


There are now 826 people in the hospital and 786 new cases.

Across the state, 1.06 percent of coronavirus tests came back positive.

In the Capital Region, the positivity rate stayed flat from Wednesday to Thursday at 0.7 percent.

The positivity rate in the Mohawk Valley went from 1.1 percent Wednesday to 1.2 percent Thursday.

The governor says New York state will send coronavirus medication to Florida as that state struggles with a resurgence of cases.

"New York's COVID-19 numbers are stable and continue to trend in the right direction, but amid an alarming spike in cases throughout the nation and reports of lack of compliance here at home, it's vitally important that residents continue practicing the behaviors that have successfully bent the curve," Governor Cuomo said in a statement. "We know that wearing a mask, washing your hands and social distancing are effective tools for fighting this virus—and now is the time to redouble those efforts. Continue to be New York Tough this weekend and show this nation the path forward while keeping your loved ones safe!"
