The city's seven-day average coronavirus positivity rate now stands above 7%, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio. 

In a tweet Sunday, the mayor said just over 3,000 new COVID-19 cases were reported in the city Saturday, with 191 people admitted to city hospitals.

"2020 isn’t over yet, and neither is this fight," de Blasio tweeted. "Get tested, continue social distancing, and keep each other safe."

Meanwhile Gov. Andrew Cuomo said coronavirus hospitalizations hit 7,183, the highest number in months, with more than 1,100 people in the ICU.

Another 115 New Yorkers died of COVID-19 Saturday.

The statewide positivity rate is at 5.85%.

Both the mayor and governor have warned of a spike in cases due to holiday gatherings. They are also concerned about a new strain of the virus, first identified in the United Kingdom, making its way to the United States.
