Six Big Apple neighborhoods now account for 20 percent of all coronavirus cases citywide — part of a local surge in the global pandemic that includes a stretch of southern Brooklyn dubbed the “Ocean Parkway Cluster,” health officials said Tuesday.

The cluster, along the thoroughfare in Midwood, Borough Park and Bensonhurst, reported a 4.7 percent rate of positive tests last week alone, well above the citywide average of 1 percent, according to data from the city Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.

They weren’t alone. Nearly 3.7 percent of those tested in Edgemere-Far Rockaway also tested positive, as did 2.2 percent in Kew Gardens.

Williamsburg also recorded a 2 percent.

  1. Positive or negative tests depends on the moods of the staff.

    Somebody called for a blood test result. The secretary told her to wait a minute while she checks it out. The secretary forgot to press the mute button and the caller heard her question to her co-workers “What’s today positive or negative?” To which they replied, “In the morning positive, in the afternoon negative.”

    Not only are the CDC, WHO and Health Dept corrupt, they’re causing their secretaries to be crooks and unethical too.
    CAN ANYONE IN THE MEDICAL LINE STILL BE TRUSTED?

  2. The percentages are still extremely low. Basically, between 0.01% and 0.02%. Even one is too many but let’s not continue the media’s endless incitement of panic.
