Rate of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in New York as of February 22, 2021, by county

In the state of New York, Warren and Rockland have the highest coronavirus case rates when adjusted for the population of a county. Rockland County had around 1,157 positive cases per 10,000 people as of February 22, 2021.

The five boroughs of NYC

With around 690,000 positive infections as of late February 2021, New York City has the highest number of coronavirus cases in New York State – this means that there were approximately 820 cases per 10,000 people. New York City is composed of five boroughs; each borough is coextensive with a county of New York State. Staten Island is the smallest in terms of population, but it is the borough with the highest rate of COVID-19 cases.

Public warned against complacency

The number of new COVID-19 cases in New York City spiked for the second time as the winter holiday season led to an increase in social gatherings. New York State is slowly recovering – indoor dining reopened in February 2021 – but now is not the time for people to become complacent. Despite the positive rollout of vaccines, experts have urged citizens to adhere to guidelines and warned that face masks might have to be worn for at least another year.
