NEW YORK – In New York, 130 people died due to COVID-19 on Wednesday, 62 of whom were from New York City, according to the latest data released by the state.

The total is the largest number since mass vaccinations began.

Currently, over 11,000 people are hospitalized, the highest total since the peak of the pandemic in spring 2020.


WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Omicron-driven surge in U.S. COVID-19 cases has likely not topped out yet, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday as schools, hospitals and businesses struggle with rising caseloads.

“I don’t believe we’ve seen the peak yet here in the United States,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told NBC News’ “Today” program.

Health officials have urged Americans not to get complacent in the face of the highly-transmissible variant, noting that even if it turns out to induce milder disease the fact that it is more contagious means a higher volume of cases, including more severe ones.
