“For the first time in several months, we have a 24-hour period in which no one has died from the coronavirus in this city. Let's spend many more days like this,”de Blasio was quoted as saying by CNN.
Currently, the rate of positive tests for coronavirus in New York is 2%. The authorities warn that this does not mean defeating the virus. Moreover, doctors record an increase in the incidence among young people aged 20 to 29 years.
At the moment, the number of mobile vans for testing has doubled in the city, masks are massively distributed to people and urged to beware.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump (Donald Trump) wrote on Twitter that the country is declining mortality from COVID-19, despite the increase in incidence. The head of state suggested that the increase in the number of new cases is due to the increase in testing.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the United States ranks first in the world in the number of cases of coronavirus - over 3.4 million cases and more than 136 thousand deaths. The highest incidence rate was recorded in Los Angeles with 140,576 confirmed cases.
