Photo: Angela Weiss/AFP via Getty Images A year ago, New York City became the COVID-19 epicenter of the world. According to new research by city health officials, nearly a quarter of adult New Yorkers were infected during last spring’s catastrophic wave. Researchers at the Department of Health and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health looked at antibody-testing data for more than 45,000 city residents last year. In the new study, published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases , they found the toll of infection was worse among Black and Hispanic residents, who were twice as likely as white New Yorkers to have antibodies for COVID-19. (The presence of antibodies serves as evidence of past infection.) “Given disparities in infection risk, effective interventions for at-risk groups are needed during ongoing transmission,” the study’s authors concluded. … [Read more...] about 1 in 4 New Yorkers Were Infected in First Surge of Virus, Study Finds
Kiz: Look around the Nuggets’ bandwagon and there’s an empty feeling. When guard Jamal Murray went down with a knee injury, all the cool kids jumped off. No smart basketball analyst is picking Denver to win the NBA championship now. The bandwagon is not only empty, it’s sputtering. But as you well know, I always walk on the sunny side of the street. The good news? There’s now a good seat available next to Nikola Jokic on the 5280 Wagon. How far can Joker take the Nuggets in the playoffs? Singer: Writing off the Nuggets’ chances of making a significant run in this year’s postseason would be akin to assuming they’d already checked out of their hotels when they were down 3-1 to Utah last year. Or the Clippers, for that matter. Murray’s torn ACL puts a significant damper on the season and probably eliminates their budding title chances. I learned my lesson last postseason, though. As long as the MVP frontrunner remains available to play, the Nuggets have a chance. Kiz: Being the … [Read more...] about Kiszla vs. Singer: How far can Nuggets go in NBA playoffs without Jamal Murray?
The Nuggets have interest in adding free agent guard Austin Rivers as they look to bolster their roster ahead of the postseason, league sources told The Denver Post. Rivers, who played 21 games with the Knicks this season, was traded to Oklahoma City at the trade deadline and then waived. In addition to Rivers, the Nuggets also have free agents Troy Daniels and Gerald Green on their radar, league sources said. The Nuggets intend to add another player, potentially on a 10-day contract, a source said. The Nuggets have lacked backcourt depth after sending guards Gary Harris and R.J. Hampton to Orlando in the Aaron Gordon trade. One issue for the Nuggets is how to comply with the NBA’s COVID protocols while bringing in players for workouts. It’s not as seamless as in most years, since potential additions need to clear a certain number of tests before coming to the facility. Another, perhaps more significant, issue for the Nuggets is whether someone like Rivers would be … [Read more...] about Nuggets considering free agents Austin Rivers, Troy Daniels or Gerald Green, sources say
