UTICA, N.Y. – Another Oneida County resident has died from coronavirus, according to County Executive Anthony Picente.

The county is not releasing any personal details about this person.

As of Friday, 79 people in Oneida County tested positive for coronavirus, and 14 people have recovered. The positive cases increased by 11 from Thursday.

There are still 14 people hospitalized, 13 at MVHS and one outside the county. Oneida County Health Director Phyllis Ellis says at least two people are in the Intensive Care Unit.

According to Picente, 492 people have tested negative for the virus. There are still 206 results pending.

Oneida County has now put a dashboard on its website with coronavirus statistics, which can be viewed at: ocgov.net.

The dashboard will be updated every day after Picente's daily briefing.

Picente also expressed frustration with Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who he says has not been communicating directly with the county about his decisions, including Friday’s executive order to take ventilators from around the state and bring them to New York City and other overwhelmed areas.

“It’s unfortunate, it’s not the way it should be done. We need better communication. I ask that he do that,” said Picente. “I’m completely sympathetic to what’s going on in New York City, I can’t fathom what they’re going through. But I know what we’re going through here and it’s just as devastating to my community.”

Cuomo said facilities would be reimbursed if the state seizes ventilators or other personal protective equipment.
