Most are in Downstate New York in parts of Orange and Rockland counties, Brooklyn and Queens.

Despite the declines, the positive test percentages in the clusters are still much higher than other areas of the state.

As of Wednesday, October 14th, Broome County has reported a total of 3,366 tests with 96 new positives, Chenango County reported a total of 267 tests with 1 new case, Delaware County reported 143 tests with 2 new positive cases, and Tioga County has reported a total of 442 tests with 19 new positive cases.

The coronavirus infection rate has been creeping up in NY, though it still remains well below the rates in most other states.

Out of the 133 thousand tests processed statewide the infection rate was 1.09%, but in the red zones, the positivity is 4.84%.

Cuomo's order, which expires on November 5, also limited religious gatherings in "orange zone" areas that surround the "red zones" to the lesser of 25 people or 33% of capacity. The statewide rate without the cluster areas included was 1.14%.

"We are addressing these clusters through our targeted approach to ensure that they don't become community spread", Cuomo said in a press release.

The state's numbers in recent days also show that hospitalizations for the disease are steadily climbing.

Rich Azzopardi, senior adviser to the governor, said Cuomo is actually saying the opposite of what Trump is saying.

Another 143 patients were newly admitted to hospitals in NY on Thursday. Numerous state's over 700 districts are conducting at least part time in- person learning.

State Sen. Jim Tedisco, a Republican who has been at odds with the governor over nursing home policies during the pandemic, said perhaps the governor was too hasty in writing the book before the crisis is over. He says he expects "micro cluster" outbreaks of the virus to flare up for at least another year, even after there is a vaccine.
