New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo has some undistinguished company.

The highest rate was recorded in Morrisania, The Bronx, where 43 percent of residents tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies.

A City Councilman from Brooklyn on Thursday told the New York Post he is asking Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to allow mom-and-pop shops that did not receive government loans to reopen.

New York City's deep-rooted wealth and racial disparities have been shown in the pattern of the COVID-19 spread, as people in lower-income neighborhoods and communities of color are suffering the most, according to city and state data.

Ranking by zip codes, the top ten highest-infected neighborhoods are located in the boroughs of The Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, home to most of the city's minority groups.

"We will let no New Yorker go hungry, period", de Blasio said. Hospitals still see an average of 225 new patients a day.

The state is now looking at the five boroughs as one New York City region in its reopening metrics, but Staten Island Republicans have called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to look at all of the boroughs separately in its reopening plan.

"A whole lot of medical services are going by the wayside that are also going to kill people, so I understand that the governor does not want to make any more mistakes than he's already made but we need to get back to business because the city is dying".
