(AP) – The steep rise in coronavirus deaths in New York appears to leveling off in a faint glimmer of hope in the nation’s epicenter,the governor said Monday, warning residents they must continue to adhere to social distancing and lockdown measures that have likely slowed the virus in Italy, Spain and France.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the number of new people entering hospitals daily has dropped, as have the number of critically ill patients who require ventilators. Recent data suggests the state could be at or near the peak. That’s why it’s critical to keep to the restrictions, he said, ordering schools and non-essential businesses closed until the end of the month, and lambasted New Yorkers out in parks over the weekend.
