New York Governor Kathy Hochul for the first time acknowledged an additional 12,000 Covid deaths in the state.

The state database on pandemic deaths was updated Tuesday, her first day in office, to include both the official tally from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and previously reported state numbers.
