ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the state has climbed to 3,800, with close to 900 in intensive care.

New York officials are keeping a close eye on already-stressed hospitals as the number of cases is projected to rise for perhaps three more weeks.

Locally, there are 12 cases of coronavirus confirmed in Oneida County, seven in Herkimer County and two in Otsego County.

The state has more than 30,000 confirmed cases and 285 deaths. The nation-high figures are driven mostly by New York City.

Cuomo said Wednesday that as many as 140,000 hospital beds may be needed in a state with 53,000.
