The updated numbers relating to COVID-19:

-The number of total positive tests is 122,031.

The governor mentioned an anomaly in the numbers in today's briefing. The number of new patients hospitalized on Sunday dropped to 574 when on Saturday that number was at 1,095.

As for explaining that number, the Governor hopes that this means we are closer to an apex or a plateau in the "curve".

But said the statisticians won't know for another week. The state is expected to hit the apex of the pandemic by next week.

The Governor mentioned that hospitalizations here in Upstate have remained roughly the same.

Cuomo also spoke about cabin fever and the Governor said it's beginning to be recognized as a potential mental health problem.
