TUESDAY, July 14, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- New York City -- once the COVID-19 epicenter in the United States -- has marked a major achievement.

"For the first time in months, we have a 24-hour period where no one in this city died from the coronavirus," Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday, CNN reported. "Let's have many more days like that."

The city's positive test rate for the new coronavirus is now 2 percent, but De Blasio said rising infection rates among young adults are "worrisome."

He said the city will be "doubling down" on virus control among young adults by offering more mobile testing vans, outreach programs, and mask giveaways and by opening 10 new testing sites in the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn, CNN reported.
