Coronavirus Cases Among 20-Somethings In NYC Rise


Mayor Bill de Blasio


NEW YORK, NY — New York City’s 20-somethings put a damper on recent good news about New York City’s recent dip in coronavirus rates.

Mayor Bill de Blasio highlighted a “worrisome” spike in COVID-19 infections rates among New Yorkers aged 20 to 29. He contrasted young New Yorkers’ rise in illnesses with steadily falling numbers in almost every coronavirus measurement — including a daylong respite from virus-linked deaths.

The pandemic has been difficult for younger adults who have spent months cooped up, disconnected and away from loved ones, de Blasio said.

“And I understand that people are just yearning to break out of that, but we’ve got to keep telling everyone, particularly younger adults, to stick to what has worked — the social distancing, the face coverings, getting tested,” he said.
