There were 7,814 people hospitalized patients with #Covid-19 in #New #York as of #Tuesday, the highest number since #May 8, according to data compiled by the #Covid #Tracking #Project, an independent volunteer organization launched by journalists at The #Atlantic.

The surge in sick patients has led the state to begin preparing to re-use the #Javits #Center as an emergency #Covid-19 field hospital, according to reports from the #New #York #Post, citing senior #Cuomo advisor #Rich #Azzopardi and #Northwell #Health CEO #Michael #Dowling. #Cuomo has already announced the state would reopen a field hospital on #Staten #Island following a spike in hospitalizations there.

The #Democratic governor is also weighing new lockdown measures in #January if the current surge continues, though new restrictions are not guaranteed, he said. The state has reported over 100 daily #Covid-19 deaths for over two weeks now, totaling over 37,600 fatalities since the beginning of the pandemic, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by #Johns #Hopkins #University.

“#As we approach the #New #Year and the end of the holiday season, all #New #Yorkers must remember one simple truth – celebrating smart stops shutdowns,” #Cuomo said in a statement #Tuesday.
