As Breitbart News has continued to note, CDC data separates New York City’s data from the remainder of the state. Even so, New York, excluding the city, has reported 239.9 cases per 100,000 in the last seven days, or 26,525 cases.

New York City specifically reported 289.4 cases per 100,000, or 24,303 in the same time frame. Combined, the Empire State has reported 50,828 cases in the last seven days.

Texas, which lifted coronavirus-related restrictions last month, including the statewide mask mandate which had remained in effect since last summer, is also faring far better than those blue states, reporting 64.6 new cases of the virus per 100,000 in the last seven days, or 18,731 cases total.
