Rates of COVID-19 cases in New York City as of February 7, 2021, by borough

Of the five boroughs of New York City, Stanten Island has the highest rate of coronavirus cases per 100,000 people. Brooklyn – the most populous borough – has around 6,152 cases per 100,000 people, and only Manhattan has a lower case rate.

Queens hit hard by COVID-19

As of late February 2021, there had been around 1.5 million positive infections in New York State, and Queens was the county with the highest number of coronavirus cases. Queens County, which has the same boundaries as the borough of Queens, had also recorded one of the highest number of deaths due to the coronavirus in New York State. Since the start of the pandemic in the U.S., densely populated neighborhoods in Queens have been severely affected, and government leaders across New York State have had to find solutions to some unprecedented challenges.

Governor wins support during pandemic

The response to the COVID-19 crisis in New York State has been led by Governor Andrew Cuomo. His early handling of the pandemic appeared to lift his approval rating: Nearly three-quarters of New Yorkers said they had a favorable opinion of him in March 2020. The survey of registered New York State voters also found that large proportions of people believed the state government was doing everything it could to protect the health of New Yorkers.
