New York City is gaining a good reputation these days thanks to the successful management with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Back in March, New York was the epicenter of the virus and was seen as the least favorite place of the US, while today, the statistics are showing a completely different picture.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today that NYC has the lowest positivity rates since the start of the global pandemic.
According to his report, the coronavirus positivity rate in the city dropped to 0.24%.
Unlike the previous weeks, today, there were only 64 new coronavirus cases, while the seven-day average is 320 cases.
City officials are organizing testing sites in south Brooklyn where 16 new infections were reported after a massive wedding in the neighborhood.
However, the numbers are much lower than in the last months, which means that the local people respect the mandatory protective measures.
Medical experts keep pointing out that the control of further virus spread depends on all of us, and the sooner we realize that, the better.
De Blasio has been working with the coronavirus testing and tracing centers, helping the local communities to overcome the pandemic.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, 235,000 people were infected by COVID-19 in NYC, while 23,642 have died.
