Several regions, including Central New York, met required benchmarks and began reopening on Friday.

"It is the lower income communities, predominantly minorities where we are still seeing an increase in the numbers", Cuomo said.

One more region of the state, the Capitol Region, stepped into phase one of reopening on Wednesday, leaving downstate regions - New York City, Long Island and Mid-Hudson - the only regions that are not qualified for reopening yet. "What's safe for your health in New York City". On March 25, he made a convincing statement that he cared about every human life: "We're not going to accept the premise that human life is disposable, and we're not going to put a dollar figure on human life". "It doesn't work that way".

The survey, which was conducted in coordination with Northwell Health and community churches, highlighted the devastating toll that COVID-19 has taken on black and Latino residents in the city's poorer neighborhoods, Cuomo said. Both the state and city are on a path to recovery, with fewer hospitalizations, but some metrics in the city have been slower to improve than those in regions less hit by Covid-19.

New York City residents from low-income communities have tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies at a higher-than-average rate, underscoring the disproportionate impact of the disease on people of color, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.

New York City is meeting the coronavirus crisis with a massive emergency food assistance program and will be delivering 1 million meals daily by next week, with another 500,000 meals available daily for pickup at school sites, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

New York, which has taken a lead in US tracking of the so-called multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, is now investigating 159 cases in the state, Cuomo said.

Statewide, hospitalisations declined again on Tuesday, continuing a downtrend that started more than a month ago, Cuomo said.

NY state reported 109 deaths on May 21, for a total of 23,192. That's down from a peak of more than 18,000 over multiple days in April and it's the fifth day in row hospitalizations have been below 6,000.
