New York has the most coronavirus cases in the U.S., but there is one positive sign. According to Governor Andrew Cuomo, the hospitalization rate has slowed down. The number of coronavirus cases requiring hospitalization was doubling every two days as recently as Sunday, now it's down to almost five days. Cuomo is giving credit to the density control and social distancing measures in the state. Quote, "If you can reduce the density, you can reduce the spread. This is a very good sign and a positive sign. I'm not 100% sure it holds, but the arrows are headed in the right direction."
