New York lost another 758 lives over a 24-hour-period, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during his daily news conference on Sunday.
"Every one is a face and a name and a family that is suffering," Cuomo said. "This is truly tragic news."
It's the sixth straight day of losses of more than 700 per day.
"That's the one number that I look forward to seeing drop as soon as I open my eyes in the morning," Cuomo said. "It has been flattening, but flattening at a terrible high level."
