About this dataSources: New York City Department of City Planning, Zillow and U.S. Census (neighborhood names). 2019 population estimates are from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and are based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the New York City Department of City Planning.
Many of the neighborhoods with the highest number of cases per capita were areas with the lowest median incomes and largest average household size. The biggest hot spots included communities in the South Bronx, north and southeast Queens, and much of Staten Island.
The outbreak is worse in areas with lower incomes …

had a case
While age was a major factor in who died from Covid-19, neighborhoods with high concentrations of black and Latino people, as well as low-income residents, suffered the highest death rates. In August, the city released the results of 1.5 million antibody tests, which showed that in one ZIP code in Queens, more than 50 percent of people who had gotten tested were found to have antibodies, a strikingly high rate.
The New York Times is engaged in a comprehensive effort to track details about every reported case in the United States, collecting information from federal, state and local officials around the clock. The numbers in this article are being updated several times a day based on the latest information our journalists are gathering from around the country.

New reported deaths by day
The New York Times has found that official tallies in the United States and in more than a dozen other countries have undercounted deaths during the coronavirus outbreak because of limited testing availability.
About the data
In data for New York City, the Times relies on reports from both city and state health departments. The figures here may not match health department statistics. New York City typically releases new data each day. Weekend counts may be lower because fewer sources report to the state. Cases and deaths are reported based on a person’s permanent or usual residence.
The Times has identified the following reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data:
March 18, 2021: New York City had a multiday disruption in reporting new data.
Dec. 7, 2020: The New York City health department began reporting probable cases. It also revised how it assigns cases to zip codes throughout the city.
Aug. 20, 2020: New York City removed four previously reported deaths after reviewing records.
Aug. 6, 2020: Our database changed to record deaths of New York City residents instead of deaths that took place in New York City.
June 30, 2020: New York City added a backlog of deaths from unspecified dates.
April 19, 2020: New York State added a backlog of confirmed deaths from April 17 and April 18.
April 6, 2020: The Times began using deaths reported by the New York State Department of Health instead of the city's health department.
The tallies on this page include probable and confirmed cases and deaths.
Confirmed cases and deaths, which are widely considered to be an undercount of the true toll, are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections were confirmed by a molecular laboratory test. Probable cases and deaths count individuals who meet criteria for other types of testing, symptoms and exposure, as developed by national and local governments.
Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.

What you can do
Experts’ understanding of how the Covid-19 works is growing. It seems that there are four factors that most likely play a role: how close you get to an infected person; how long you are near that person; whether that person expels viral droplets on or near you; and how much you touch your face afterwards. Here is a guide to the symptoms of Covid-19.
You can help reduce your risk and do your part to protect others by following some basic steps:
Keep your distance from others. Stay at least six feet away from people outside your household as much as possible.
Wear a mask outside your home. A mask protects others from your germs, and it protects you from infection as well. The more people who wear masks, the more we all stay safer.
Wash your hands often. Anytime you come in contact with a surface outside your home, scrub with soap for at least 20 seconds, rinse and then dry your hands with a clean towel.
Avoid touching your face. The virus can spread when our hands come into contact with the virus, and we touch our nose, mouth or eyes. Try to keep your hands away from your face unless you have just recently washed them.
Here are answers to your current questions about the coronavirus.
