Outer Borough COVID spike is increasing.
New York City Hall revealed late Wednesday that the major southern Brooklyn coronavirus cluster now extends from Brighton Beach to East Crown Heights – as authorities added a new neighborhood to those witnesses related to spikes in COIDID trial rates.
Central Queens and Far Rockaway also recorded coronovirus infection rates of 3 percent and about 7 percent, based on a two-week rolling average, continuing the city’s infection rate from the previous 3 percent.
Five zip codes in Brooklyn and Queens that were already on the city’s COVID hot-spot watch list – now with 10 neighborhoods with infection rates exceeding 3 percent – all saw spikes in a 24-hour period:
Borough Park has a positive infection rate of 6.51 percent from Tuesday’s figures, up from 0.28 percent. Bensonhurst / Mapleton saw a 0.26 percent increase over the same period, giving the neighborhood an average infection rate of 6.31 percent.

A new neighborhood, Fresh Meadows / Hillcrest, was added to Gotham’s hot-spot list with a 3.08 percent infection rate – an increase of 0.22 from a day earlier.
Meanwhile, Edgemere / Far Rockaway, Gravesend / Homecrest, Midwood, Flatlands and Kew Gardens saw modest declines in their positive infection rates, although they remain dangerously above the city’s 3 percent threshold.
Gotham has 27.5 percent of new virus cases in the last two weeks, despite having only 7.5 percent of the city’s overall population in those 10 areas.
City health officials also added a new category for communities in which virus uptics are hovering between 2 percent and 3 percent. They include Williamsburg, Crown Heights East, Bedford-Stuyvesant West / Clinton Hill / Fort Green and Hillcrest / Jamaica Estate / Jamaica Hills.

De Blasio has also threatened that progress in some areas could be reversed if progress was not made in some areas, and even public schools had positive infection rates exceeding 3 percent on a seven-day rolling average should remain.
The group – home to several members of the Orthodox Jewish community – has drawn ire from Cuomo, who spoke with Jewish leaders on Wednesday.
“I spoke to the leaders of the conservative community this morning and we had a good conversation,” Cuomo told reporters during a late-morning conference.
Listing eight hot spots in Brooklyn and Queens, he said, “We are somewhere around herd resistance.”
Cuomo reprimanded local governments without naming de Blasio – but he complained that compliance enforcement by the state police was not enough, and required local police departments, including the NYPD, to lend them officers to a special COVID compliance force Might be possible.
“Local governments must comply,” he insisted.
“It is a state law and the local people should implement it… They have to implement the state law and they are not doing it with enough diligence. Period.”
“They’ve made it worse, not better,” he said of local officials.
Cuomo also questioned the NYPD members’ alleged refusal to wear masks, asking on Tuesday, “What kind of message does this send?” During a phone call with reporters.

When the subject was questioned on Wednesday, de Blasio told reporters that officers who violated the rule should “face penalties” and raised the issue with NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea.
“Our officers should be held to the same standard as all citizens, all public standards,” he said during his daily television press conference.
The state’s Department of Health reported a 1.2 percent positive infection rate for New York City over the past 24-hour period.
The statewide average is 1.02 percent after 97,960 tests were conducted and 1,000 positives were recorded.
There were nine deaths in the Empire State, as well as 605 persons hospitalized, 144 patients admitted to the ICU and 67 people from that group.
