Six confirmed Cases of COVID 19 in NYS
Written by Dan Fischer on March 4, 2020
Governor Andrew Cuomo says that eight hospital workers are being tested in Westchester County, following the latest confirmed cases of coronavirus. The workers are all employees of New York Presbyterian-Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, where a 50-year-old New Rochelle man first received treatment, before he was diagnosed and transferred to a Manhattan hospital. That man’s son is a student at Yeshiva University in New York City, where classes have been cancelled through Friday. The New Rochelle man’s wife, daughter, and neighbor have all tested positive for COVID-19 as well, and they’re being kept in isolation. This makes six confirmed cases of coronavirus in New York State.
