Covid Testing in progress in NYC

There was the first person infected the COVID-19 in New York on March 1st, 2020, but now 43,0145 people had gotten sick because of the COVID-19, and 408 people had died by August 24th.

That is very important for us to protect ourselves, so let us find out what the symptoms of COVID-19 are.

Having a fever is the coronavirus’s earliest sign, and then the paint will cough, and then they will feel muscle pain. People will then experience nausea or vomiting and diarrhea as following.

Having COVID-19 testing is very important for us to protect our families and ourselves. If someone 30 feet away exhales tiny particles of the coronavirus, those particles can drift and infect people around. To protect ourselves, washing hands and wearing a mask are always necessary, but it is tough for people to keep 6 feet as the social distancing in their homes. COVID is a secret killer because people without symptoms can still infect others around them, and is very dangerous for old people and those with health conditions

The analysis of 46,793 patients tested for COVID-19 between March 8th and April 10th by Northwell Health’s lab found that 57 percent of people got infected.

Having COVID testing is meaningful for people to protect themselves and their loved ones.

The environment for COVID-19 testing is getting better and better. By the end of April 16th, most NYC coronavirus testing sites were in the whitest and wealthiest ZIP codes. According to Mayor de Blasio, who announced on Friday, New York was opening up 10 more coronavirus testing sites across the five boroughs.

By the end of April 27th, among the whole New York State, the death was above 1,200, with 253 victims dying in the past 24 hours alone. More than 66,000 people throughout the state have tested positive; 9,500 are hospitalized, with 2,352 of those in intensive care units.

Let us keep social distance, and wear masks.

Let us get COVID testing and protect ourselves and our families!
