New York Kovid-19 case: New York City officials worry about neighborhood coronavirus hotbed

New York: Coronovirus infection rates have increased in many areas of New York, especially among the Orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, city health officials warned Sunday, with some schools failing to follow anti-virus regulations Threatened to live on. .
Although the Big Apple has said it kept its infection rate below one percent for more than a month, six neighborhoods in Brooklyn and two in Queens have seen their rates rise, ranging from five to six percent in Midwood and Gravessend .
The hike coincides with the Jewish high holidays, the holiest days in the Jewish calendar, ending on Monday with Yom Kippur.
“There are more than 23 percent of new cases in these areas … despite representing just under seven percent of the city’s total population,” New York City Health Services said in a press release.
He said the data showed an increase in hospitalized patients at two Brooklyn hospitals and at least one hospital in Queens.
The increase has raised fears of a second wave in New York, which reported a record 23,800 Kovid-19 fatalities when the epidemic peaked in spring.
On Friday, health officials held a press conference in Borough Park, one of the most affected Brooklyn neighborhoods.
Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi said, “This may be the most difficult situation with Kovid-19, which we have experienced in months. Urging people to wear face masks and respect social removal measures.”
But he and his colleagues were stared at least by two people in the crowd, including an Orthodox Jewish radio host known for his anti-mask stance, NBC’s video Heshy Tischler, showed.
“There are people who refuse to believe the truth, it is a deadly virus and we have easy ways to avoid it,” Michelle Katz, head of New York’s municipal healthcare system, told the news station.

With the reopening of public schools scheduled for 1 October, officials also warned that they would conduct inspections at non-public schools – including several yeshiva, or religion-focused Jewish schools – and shut down facilities when necessary. Will give and impose a fine.
But resuming in-person learning has been a poignant subject and has already been postponed twice, as some of New York’s more than 1.1 million public school parents choose instead of remote classrooms.
The Council of School Supervisors and Administrators (CSA) has called for the management of the school system – traditionally the mayor’s responsibility in the US – to be transferred to New York State Educational Services during the epidemic.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio recently promised to appoint some 4,500 additional teachers to facilitate both in-person and online learning.
But according to the CSA, a union that claims to represent about 6,400 officers for the city’s 1,800 public schools, he and the school’s chancellor Richard Carranza failed to appoint enough teachers.
It is not clear whether the schools will reopen on 1 October as planned. De Blasio and the Department of Education have not responded to CSA’s statement.
