New York: The coronavirus death toll in New York state spiked to 4,159, the governor said Sunday, up from 3,565 a day prior.

The toll increase of 594 deaths showed a slight decrease in the day-to-day number of lives lost compared to the previous day.

Governor Andrew Cuomo told journalists it was too soon to tell whether the decrease from the previous record of 630 deaths in one day was statisically significant.
