De Blasio says new rise in NYC coronavirus cases is concerning

New York City Mayor Bill de BlasioBill de BlasioThe Hill’s Morning Report – Presented by Facebook – White House, Dems play blame game over evictions New York state teacher’s union opposes staff vaccine mandates Cuomo asks businesses to go to ‘vaccine-only admission’ MORE (D) said on Tuesday that the seven-day average of new coronavirus cases in the city was “cause for concern.”

The city has reported 605 new cases on average over the last seven days, and the daily number of people admitted to the hospital with the coronavirus is at 83.

“We are watching that very carefully. Some of that again is because of a lot more testing, but it’s still cause for concern,” de Blasio told CNN.

De Blasio expressed dismay at the 0.38 percent of people diagnosed with the coronavirus across the city, calling this number “clearly aberrant.”

“We’ve seen that from time to time when surprisingly low number of test results have come in for the day. That can vary by day, that number will change and go upwards as more test results come in,” said de Blasio.
