Jewish Telegraphic Agency: NYC health department warns of ‘significant concern’ about COVID-19 rise in largely Orthodox neighborhoods

Jewish Telegraphic Agency: NYC health department warns of ‘significant concern’ about COVID-19 rise in largely Orthodox neighborhoods. “Six heavily Orthodox neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens are currently contributing 20% of all new COVID-19 cases in New York City, and rising cases there are cause for ‘significant concern,’ city health officials announced Tuesday. The new data comes amid signs of growing alarm in New York City’s Orthodox communities about the possible beginning of a second wave of cases, after a brutal spring and relatively quiet summer.”
