Gov. Cuomo's briefing is scheduled to begin soon.

Cuomo reports the number of deaths: 4,758

"While none of this is good news, the possible flattening of the curve is better than we have seen."

Total number of hospitalizations are down, as are ICU admissions and intubation, he adds.

Cuomo cautions: It could still go any way. The data is inconclusive.

"It doesn't really matter if we hit the plateau or not."

The health system is already very taxed.

Cuomo says that the "surge and flex" plan for 802 ventilators remains on course, as is the plan to relieve pressure on the hospitals via the Javits Center's 2,500 beds.

Cuomo says he'll ask Trump to shift USNS Comfort's use from non-Covid to Covid-19 use.
