New York City is the only part of the state that remains under lockdown, as the number of new coronavirus cases and deaths decrease. Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city, which has accounted for more than half of the state’s 367,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, likely will move into phase one of reopening its economy in the first two weeks of June. More than 29,500 people have died in New York state during the pandemic, with nearly 65,000 recovering from the disease, according to Johns Hopkins University.
