This website has, for over a week, been hoping to see alternative treatments for COVID-19 tried in the west. We were ecstatic to hear Governor Cuomo indicate that trial treatments would begin Tuesday. Wednesday’s New York COVID-19 numbers may be the first public indication that alternative treatments are helping. There is no way of telling how the death rate dropped but it shows a significant move in the right direction. Doctors in New York have been trying countless medicines and supplements including intravenous vitamin C.
The number of deaths per day in New York State dropped for Wednesday versus Tuesday. Tuesday, March 24th, saw a record number of 115 deaths in a single day. The final number on Wednesday, March 25th, is currently counted (as per sites such as Worldometers and others) as 95. This would mean a day to day decrease of over 17%. This could be the greatest stat yet in the hopes for a solution to the growing death toll. New York only started administering alternative medicines such as hydroxychloroquine (taken with zinc and antibiotics) on Tuesday. The death toll had been growing exponentially over the past few days in New York and a drop in daily deaths is an amazing turnaround. Our model projected over 300 deaths on Wednesday but as of now it is not even a third of that. 157 deaths had occurred in New York total since the crisis began as of midnight Monday. Tuesday death toll of 115 was around 75 percent as deadly as the total of all the weeks leading up to it. A trend continuing as such would be in the thousands daily in a day or two. Having the daily total drop overnight is practically a miracle. Wednesday’s numbers are encouraging and we hope the drop continues.
NEW CASES DROPPED TUESDAY
New York also saw a drop in the number of daily new cases for the first time in over a week. The Empire State had 4,790 new confirmed COVID-19 cases Monday. This was a decrease from the 5,707 positive tests on Monday. Cuomo cautioned the outbreak is expected to peak in about two to three weeks, but the state is rolling back its estimates as to how quickly COVID-19 patients are increasing in number. Sunday the State estimated coronavirus hospitalizations were doubling every 2 days. Monday’s estimates showed hospitalization doubling every 3.4 days. By Tuesday the estimate cut the doubling rate to every 4.7 days. Governor Cuomo credits social distancing as a major reason for the drop. Another reason could be that the state is becoming up to date on testing people with symptoms. These positive signs come after several weeks of constant bad news. We will know for sure in a few days if these increased measures and experimental treatments are truly turning the tide. But a one day drop in deaths is remarkable at this point.
