142 Confirmed Coronavirus Cases in Albany County

Albany County is continuing to see a rise in the number of confirmed cases, but not as great a rise.

However, County Executive Dan McCoy says that's because most community testing has been suspended.

He says we would probably see many more confirmed cases if the testing was continuing, and he's repeating his call for more test kits.

All in all, he says there are now 142 cases in Albany County, with 10 individuals in the hospital.

McCoy is pleading with people to "wake up" and stop being foolish.

He says he's still seeing people walk down the street together in large groups, and says staying at least 6 feet away is going to be the new normal for quite some time.

Health Commissioner Dr. Elizabeth Whalen says close to 2,900 people have been tested, but, like McCoy, cautions that we're only detecting a fraction of cases right now.
