Tracking over time

Since the city saw its first positive coronavirus test on March 1, the number of tests, new cases, deaths and hospitalizations has varied over time, influenced by city and state government measures as well as precautions taken by New Yorkers. See the most recent numbers below or select a time range.

Cases and tests

While no one number can reflect the current spread of COVID-19, a combination of the number of people getting tested and the rate of positive tests can indicate how the spread is changing.

COVID-19 hospitalizations show the caseload faced by hospitals and indicate the number of serious cases of COVID-19, independent of test rates.

Some people hospitalized with COVID were initially admitted for other reasons. Starting in January 2022, New York began reporting the number of people admitted due to COVID or complications of COVID, shown as "admitted for COVID" below.
