De Blasio: 84% of all NYC adults have received at least one COVID shot, 6 million vaccinated

“We haven’t been this low since the beginning of the pandemic,” said Dr. Mitchell Katz, CEO of Health + Hospitals, the city’s network of public hospitals and clinics. “Just to give people some sense, for the 11 Health + Hospitals, which represent about a fifth of all hospitalizations in New York City, we currently have about 70 patients with COVID in the hospital, and about 16 of them are in the intensive care unit. At the peak, we had 3,700 patients in the hospital with COVID, and we had 960 in the ICU.”
