Gov. Andrew Cuomo says New York’s death toll from Coronavirus topped 10,000, with hospitals still seeing 2,000 new patients a day.

The state tallied 671 new deaths on Sunday. It was the first time in a week the daily toll dipped below 700. Still, the governor noted Monday that people are still dying at a “horrific level of pain and grief and sorrow.

Meanwhile, New York City’s health department says the city is in danger of running out of swabs for COVID-19 tests and should only test hospitalized patients. An April 11 memo to health care providers said there’s a real possibility of running out of test swabs.

New York City and state officials have pleaded for the federal government to provide widespread coronavirus testing
