NEW YORK – The US state of New York lost 731 lives to COVID-19 from Monday to Tuesday, bringing the state’s death toll to 5,489 while marking the deadliest 24 hours yet since the pandemic took hold here, said Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday.

“Behind every one of those numbers is an individual, is a family, is a mother, is a father, is a sister, is a brother. So a lot of pain again today for many New Yorkers and they’re in our thoughts and prayers,” said Cuomo at his daily briefing on coronavirus.

The governor added that the Navy hospital ship Comfort docking at New York Harbor will be used for treating COVID-19 patients after the governor made a plea to President Donald Trump on Monday.

The ship’s original 1,000 beds will be scaled down to 500 as COVID-19 patients need more space in treatment, which “is still a tremendous benefit,” said Cuomo.

As of Monday afternoon US Eastern Time, New York state reported 138,863 COVID-19 cases, topping the country’s 50 states. Over 79,000 cases were recorded in New York City, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
