The city has recorded 1,411 positive tests for coronavirus among Bronx residents as of Sunday morning, officials said.
Citywide, there were 9,645 confirmed COVID-19 infections as of 10 a.m., officials said, up sharply from the 7,530 total infections tallied one day earlier.
Authorities have said the actual number of infected New Yorkers is probably far higher than current data shows, due to local gaps in availability of coronavirus tests.
The official city data as of Sunday morning showed 2,715 confirmed coronavirus cases in Queens, 2,072 in Manhattan, 2,857 in Brooklyn, and 593 in Staten Island.
With the city now seeing more confirmed coronavirus cases than any municipality in America, Mayor Bill de Blasio Sunday said city hospitals are 10 days away from running out of life-saving equipment, including ventilators.
“If we don’t get more ventilators in the next 10 days, people will die who don’t have to die. It’s as simple as that,” de Blasio said on CNN.
