NEW YORK (AP) — New York state has recorded more than 1 million positive COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began. That’s according to figures released Saturday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. According to the state’s data, the roughly 15,000 new positive tests reported statewide on Friday bring the total number of cases over 1 million. Experts say the official number of coronavirus cases represents a significant undercount, since many people in the New York City area were infected with the coronavirus last spring when testing was largely unavailable. New York is the fourth state to report more than 1 million positive COVID-19 tests after California, Texas and Florida.
