Governor Andrew Cuomo says it appears his state is past the apex of the coronavirus curve. Cuomo says the state has successfully changed the curve. He said as bad as the numbers are, they are not as bad as original projections. Cuomo said most numbers are down, if only slightly. Still, he said it's important to remember that there are still 1,600 people a day walking into hospitals and being diagnosed with COVID-19. There were 778 deaths in the past 24 hours. That number is slightly up, but he said over the past few days it's basically flat even if it is at a devastatingly high level. He called the lives lost a lagging indicator. Nearly 200,000 people in the state were infected and more than 10,000 have died.
