Amal Tlaige reports for News10 that COVID-19 numbers are rising again in New York. The state is seeing its highest case counts since April. But numbers are no longer in the thousands, with 789 people testing positive last month. Bryon Backenson, Director of Bureau for Communicable Disease Control at the Department of Health said, “I think we’ve become a little blasé, I don’t think we necessarily think about it as much as we used to. I think some of our defenses, we’ve let them down a little bit as time has worn on. People aren’t testing as much.” The newest COVID variant is called EG 5.1, and is a member of the Omicron family and has been more contagious. Read more about this story at News10.
