The mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, said this Sunday that he intends to apply strict measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in nine neighborhoods of the city, those that maintain a contagion rate higher, higher than 3% in the tests that have been done over the last week. “” Today is not a day to celebrate. It is a difficult day, “said the mayor, who intends to implement the measures on Wednesday.

The measures mean the closure of non-essential businesses, as well as public and private schools, according to ‘The New York Times’. The affected areas, the newspaper continues, are located in Brooklyn and Queens, where there is a significant population of Orthodox Jews who are not following preventive measures and who have made it possible for the virus to spread rapidly in recent weeks.

Blasio’s plan is pending approval by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and represents the first reversal measures given in the city since the deconfinement began, until now described as exemplary.
