NYC COVID-19 Infection Rate Continuing to Rise in Brooklyn/Queens Neighborhoods

NYC COVID-19 Infection Rate Continuing to Rise in Brooklyn/Queens Neighborhoods

A recent Twitter post by the NYC Mayor’s staff shows a worsening COVID-19 transmission rate in certain neighborhoods. This follows up on concerns which began earlier in the week.

Tweeted yesterday by the Department of Health, (their actual tweet can be seen near the bottom of this page) the infection rates are as follow:

  • Gravesend/Homecrest 6.0%
  • Midwood 4.95%
  • Edgemere/Far Rockaway 4.08%
  • Kew Gardens 3.99%
  • Borough Park 3.53%
  • Bensonhurst/Mapleton 3.16%
  • Gerritsen Beach/Homecrest/Sheepshead Bay 3.07%
  • Flatlands/Midwood 3.06%
  • Williamsburg 1.67%

They followed up on their tweet with the following:

“”If the indicators continue to rise, the City will take additional enforcement actions. For the first time in the city’s recovery period, there could be the immediate scaling back of activities in these ZIP codes if progress is not made by Monday evening.””

NYC Mayor de Blasio’s Press Secretary, Bill Neidhardt tweeted today higher numbers than those which appear in the above mentioned tweet:

Several days ago we posted about the initial concerns exhibited by city leadership.

As of the week ending on September 19, infection rates went from 2.0% to 4.71% for these areas. At the time, they comprised 20% of the city’s total.

It was stated that such increases could potentially evolve into widespread community transmission and go beyond these neighborhoods.

Both the Mayor and DOH Commissioner Dave Chokshi spoke of a massive educational outreach to members of these communities for the sake of communicating the importance of COVID-19 Compliance.

As of the time of this writing on September 26, the NYC Department of Health’s Website Data is not up to date enough to reflect what was shared yesterday.

Below is a chart from the DOH which shows the infection rate for the period ending on September 19.
