New York, which is embracing coronavirus-related restrictions and continuing to implement a statewide mask mandate, has been recognized as a “top hot spot” of the Chinee coronavirus in recent days, reporting roughly 53,000 new cases in the last week.
Both Johns Hopkins University data and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) figures reveal the Empire State topping red states and fellow blue states alike in terms of new reported cases of the virus. The Hill recognized New York as the “top hot spot,” comprising 12 percent of total U.S. cases.
Johns Hopkins data shows New York reporting 53,088 new cases and 539 new deaths. While CDC data separates New York City from the rest of the state in case data, the city alone has reported 25,843 cases in the last seven days, or 307.7 cases per 100,000. The remainder of the state has reported 27,469 cases in the last seven days,
