According to Cuomo, COVID-19 hospitalizations in New York are nearly quadruple what they were in June. . He cited small gatherings acting as “spreader” events, saying they accounted for 65 percent of new cases.

In preparation for the continued surge, Cuomo said every hospital in the state must start compiling a list of retired doctors and nurses. .

So we will have a limited ability to bring resources from upstate to downstate as we did in the spring … because literally every region is dealing with a hospital issue now, Andrew Cuomo, via 'New York Post'
