Thanks, Nicki, and same to you and your family.
Yes, it will go on for a while, and we'll have to start thinking at some point about a 2nd wave.
I can't emphasize enough that social distancing works, as simple as it seems. Deaths here have started to level off at 600 per day, which may be a trend. That's still 600 too many, but it has stayed at that level for the last two days.
Despite all the noise to the contrary, the avenues and streets here on the west side are almost deserted. Nobody is out, nobody is around, nothing non-essential is open, vehicular traffic is almost non-existent. Hundreds of thousands of people are staying home. If the virus is out, there aren't a whole lot of human beings for it to spend time with.
A zip code map a few days ago showed the heaviest concentration of NYC cases in Brooklyn, near or in some of the Hasidic communities there. Those communities are very tight-knit and social, and may have had some connection to the Hasidic communities in New Rochelle. Social distancing might have been weak there.
The two family members in the hospital are still there, and stable, for now. They lived in Brooklyn, not far from the hot spots.
