New York City lost 188 residents to Covid-19 in the week ended Dec. 21, up 31% from the average for the previous four weeks.

While cases declined in the past week, hospitalizations and deaths increased. The seven-day average of confirmed and probable deaths has more than doubled this month, to 34 on Dec. 18. Mayor Bill de Blasio has urged residents to stay home for the holidays.

The fatalities are nowhere near the 700-plus daily deaths New York City saw in April. The most populous U.S. city has reported 387,361 confirmed and probable cases since the outbreak began, and 24,735 deaths.
