NEW YORK - The coronavirus death toll in New York dropped again, a sign that Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday means the state is "on the other side of the plateau" and that ongoing social distancing practices are working to stem the spread of the virus.

Cuomo said 507 people died on Saturday, down 33 from the previous day and by 271 since last Monday. Other indicators were going in the right direction, the governor said. Hospitalizations were down by more than 750, to 16,213.
