Mayor Bill De Blasio warns of second wave of coronavirus in NYC

 Mayor Bill de Blasio says New York City is dangerously close to experiencing a second wave of coronavirus.  

De Blasio says the city is seeing what he calls dangerous growth in the positivity rate with it now consistently over 2 percent for the first time in months.

“If these numbers continue to grow then people are going to have to get used to more and more restrictions and going back to some of the ways we had to live in the spring.”

And he’s calling on indoor dining to be re-evaluated. The mayor says the increase in the infection rate and case numbers is not tied to an event or area.

“The key problem here is indoors and not wearing masks.”
