After four months, New York City reported its first day without a death due to the new CCP Virus.
On Sunday, July 12, the New York City Department of Health was able to celebrate its first day without a death due to the new CCP virus that keeps the whole world on edge.
Four months have passed since the first death was recorded in the capital. Since that day, 18,669 infections and 4,613 probable deaths have been confirmed. The city of more than 9 million people soon became the epicenter of the nation’s CCP Virus (coronavirus) outbreak. On April 7, it recorded its peak number of deaths when 597 deaths were reported.
Deputy press secretary for the mayor Avery Cohen expressed gratitude saying, “New Yorkers have been the heroes of this story, they have gone above and beyond to stay safe,” as reported by ABC News.
Washington also celebrated a decline in the number of cases and deaths this month. While some regions are stabilizing and counting a decrease in cases, other states in the South and West are reporting large increases.
So on Sunday, while New York celebrated no deaths, the new epicenter of contagion seems to have moved south to Florida. This is where the new daily record for infections nationwide was set, with over 15,000 new infections in a single day, as reported by authorities and replicated by various media outlets such as Fox News.
This increase in the number of people infected also coincides with a significant increase in the number of tests conducted. Which in the last month exceeded 50,000 per day. Gov. Ron DeSantis was confident and optimistic that the state of Florida is prepared for the further spread of the virus. He even expressed his willingness to open schools again in the fall, saying, “The risk of corona, fortunately, for students is incredibly low” as reported by Fox News.
