NYC – Nearly 4,000 infected & 26 dead by COVID-19

NYC coronavirus cases continue to grow with nearly 4,000 infected, 26 dead. 339 more are confirmed to be infected as testing increased across the five boroughs on Thursday, City Hall said.

Brooklyn continues to be the borough with the most infected, at 1,195 cases, according to the new tally. In Queens there are 1,042 cases; 1,038 in Manhattan; 496 in the Bronx; and 179 on Staten Island.

“From the very beginning, New York City has been fighting COVID-19 with one hand tied behind our back. We cannot leave our healthcare workers vulnerable, and we need the federal government to step up and give our frontline workers the tools they need to save lives all across our City.” Mayor de Blasio said in a statement.

The governor had warned ahead of his news briefing that the day-over-day jump in numbers would be astronomical. He said more than 7,500 tests were conducted overnight, nearly a quarter of what the CDC website says it has done nationally to date. Increased testing capacity leads to more positive tests by default.

COVID-19 threatened to spiral out of control in New York on Thursday, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced nearly 2,000 new cases overnight, and then New York City’s case count went up another 50 percent within a matter of hours.
