NEW YORK – The number of positive COVID-19 cases in New York continues to set records, as the state confirmed that 49,708 positive cases were reported on December 24 alone.

That number marks the highest single-day total in the state since the pandemic began.

Just 36,454 people tested positive for COVID on Christmas Day, however, far fewer people were out receiving tests.
