- NYC mayor: ‘We’re not going to tolerate people to congregate’
- City still under stay-at-home orders as more than 15,000 die
- Coronavirus – live US updates
New York mayor Bill de Blasio has criticized residents who were seen gathering without masks outside bars at the weekend despite the city’s ongoing stay at home guidelines, saying they were putting “lives in danger”.
Almost 90,000 people have died in the US from Covid-19 so far during the pandemic, far more than any other country, according to Johns Hopkins. More than 15,000 of those deaths were in New York City, which is still subject to stay-at-home measures even as many other US cities begin to open back up.
