Coronavirus Update: Mayor announces COVID-19 heat wave plan

NEW YORK CITY (WABC) — Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the city would be limiting access to Sheep Meadow in Central Park, Hudson River Park Piers 45 and 46 this weekend. He said it’s to help preserve the progress the city has made in its fight against the coronavirus.

Now that the temperatures are warming up, the mayor unveiled the city’s COVID-19 heatwave plan. Part of the plan involves the city buying 74,000 air conditioners for residents.

There are 110 cases of Pediatric Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in NYC. 54% of cases tested positive for COVID-19 or antibodies.

Of the three indicators, hospitalizations were up, ICU patients were down, and the percentage of positive cases was also up. “Not the day we’re looking for,” Mayor de Blasio said.
