New York, as major travel hub, proved 'primary gateway' to spread of virus


Hilary Swift – New York Times

Cleaners wearing protective coveralls, shoe coverings, face masks and surgical gloves sanitize a No. 2 subway train in the Bronx early Wednesday, May 6, 2020. On Wednesday morning, the New York City subway system, a 24-hour mainstay, closed for overnight disinfection.

New York City's coronavirus outbreak grew so large by early March that the city became the primary source of new infections in the United States, new research reveals, as thousands of infected people traveled from the city and seeded outbreaks around the country.

The research indicates that a wave of infections swept from New York City through much of the country before the city began setting social distancing limits to stop the growth. That helped to fuel outbreaks in Louisiana, Texas, Arizona and as far away as the West Coast.
