Calling it an “extraordinary” day for the city, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the percentage of people citywide who tested positive for Covid-19 – which needs to be under the threshold of 15% – is at 1%.
The mayor said this is “unbelievably good news.”
All of the city's markers for indicators of the Covid-19 virus are under their thresholds, de Blasio said Tuesday.
People admitted to hospitals for suspected Covid-19 – which needs to be under the threshold 200 – is at 52. The daily number of people in intensive care units – which needs to be under the threshold 375 — is today at 337.
The mayor's update comes one day after New York City began reopening in phase one.
