Lower-income, minority groups in NYC hit hardest by COVID-19

Morrisania also had a 81 percent higher hospitalisation rate than the city's average, he said.

Marcus said that, in addition to NY residents struggling to buy food and pay rent, there is a medical toll from people putting off treatment or other things like cancer screenings.

It is disturbing and confusing as to why New York Gov. Cuomo is being lauded as a national hero for his "fight" against COVID-19. More than 194,500 cases and 14,800 deaths occurred in New York City.

"My position (on schools reopening) is that I don't have a position", Cuomo said.

He said the city has handed out 6 million face coverings to New Yorkers to date and planned to give out a total of 12.5 million more in the coming weeks.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo (L) demonstrates how to get a COVID-19 test during a daily COVID-19 press briefing in Albany of New York State, the United States, on May 17, 2020.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Wednesday that religious services would be permitted to resume in the state on condition that strict restrictions on numbers and social distancing were observed.

The mayor said the NYPD would scale up its beach patrol detail by 30% this weekend and send more than 150 Parks Department personnel to the city's beaches to enforce social distancing rules and make sure New Yorkers are not swimming or congregating in large crowds on the shoreline.

"The last thing we want to do is have a religious ceremony that winds up having more people infected", Cuomo said. "But we need to find out how to do it and do it safely and do it smartly".

The survey, which was conducted in coordination with Northwell Health and community churches, highlighted the devastating toll that COVID-19 has taken on black and Latino residents in the city's poorer neighborhoods, Cuomo said.
