The state with approximately 20 million inhabitants registered 149,316 infections on Wednesday. Spain has counted 146,690. This is followed by Italy with 139,422 identified cases. In this census, the severely affected state of New York is compared with the equally hard hit European countries Spain and Italy. They both have a lot more inhabitants than New York.

But there is also positive news. The lockdown measures “are working,” said Governor Cuomo. “The curve” of new hospital admissions “bends,” he explained at his daily press briefing. About 586 people were hospitalized in the last 24 hours, far fewer than between March 25 and April 3, when some 1,000 people were hospitalized every day. “We’re not there yet,” warned Cuomo. He recalled that the balance for New York State had risen to 6,268 deaths.

In the United States, the number of registered infections with the new corona virus rose to over 400,000 on Wednesday, according to the Johns Hopkins University census. The pandemic so far claimed 12,912 nationwide, which is on track to become the new epicenter of the disease.
