For the first time since March, New York goes a day without a single coronavirus death

New York City, once the U.S. epicenter of coronavirus infections, reached its first day in nearly four months without a single coronavirus death, according to preliminary numbers released on Sunday.

New York City health department data showed there were no deaths from covid-19 on Saturday.

It's the first time since March 13 that no deaths from the virus were reported.

There were also no confirmed cases from the disease last Friday, as well.

The very first person to die from the virus in New York City passed away on March 11.

Since that time, 18,670 people have died from the illness along with 4,613 probable Covid-19 deaths that have been reported, according to the New York Post.
