"That the state lifted most capacity restrictions, and so many people are thinking of this summer as the beginning of post pandemic life. But when you kick the tires on that 70% number you see a lot of disparities in just who has gotten vaccinated and how some of the areas hit hardest by Covid are not experiencing the same return to normalcy. A W N Y. C. GOTHAMIST Analysis of New York City data shows covid segregation is widening. Even as the overall toll of the pandemic lessons, hospitalizations and deaths are now happening in areas that have fallen behind on vaccine doses. Here to walk us through some of the numbers and the reasons behind these disparities is our science and health Editor Sikandar Coupon. Good morning, Silicon. Good morning. Happy Friday. Same to you, Um, sick, um, what neighborhoods have a higher vaccination rate and which ones are lagging? Yeah. Anyone who follows the vaccine maps on a regular basis knows that wealthier parts of Manhattan are leading the way. Basically, everywhere south of Haarlem is above 80% partially vaccinated for adults. Parts around the financial district are at 100%, Greenpoint, Dumbo and Park Slope in Brooklyn are in that general vicinity for vaccine coverage, too, as well as parts of north queens, near Flushing and Bayside. Areas that have fallen behind includes Central and East Brooklyn, Harlem, Washington Heights and most of the Bronx and also parts of Staten Island. Now it's divided along those same lines for where we're seeing new cases and more hospitalization rates, right? Yeah, that's right. Our health data reporter Jacqueline Jeffrey Wolinski conducted a new analysis of city data. She found that Soon after Covid vaccines were approved in mid December, the daily share of new coronavirus infections among white New Yorkers began to decline. It dropped by about 10% points from the start of the roll out to the end of February. Now that happened despite widespread issues with accessing online appointments and getting supplies into the city due to implement weather. Before this decline, new cases among white residents parallel their share of the city's population, which is about 40%. Now for Hispanic and Latino groups. New infections remain flat, but pretty high, You know, they account for about 37% of cases, or about two of every five cases in the city. That's higher than their share of the city's population. The black proportion of daily cases grew during this period, rising by five points to 21% and by mid winner, Hispanic and black residents comprise more than half Of the daily new cases. Now you know, the vaccine rollout has really improved since then, thanks to better access to the vaccines walk in appointments. All of those things yet Hispanic and black New Yorkers still account for about Two thirds of new covid cases, meaning that their share of new infections has been rising this whole time. So if we know that vaccines have been the biggest tool in fighting, the spread of Covid shouldn't the hardest hit neighborhoods have the highest vaccination rates? Yeah. One might hope for that. To see improvement. Bar analysis has found that covid hospitalizations are further saturating in places that are left behind. You know, this covid segregation is deepening. City officials put the blame on hesitancy. But national surveys actually show that New York City has among some of the lowest rates of hesitancy in the state and country. So, for example, in Manhattan, the estimated hesitancy is about 6.5% in Brooklyn. It's 8%. It's a really tiny difference. Meanwhile, Manhattan's vaccine coverage is nearly 20% higher than Brooklyn's. When I raised this data with Mayor de Blasio this week, here's how he responded. Micro comment is, with all due respect to the C C. That's not what we're experiencing. Our data comes from millions of encounters with New Yorkers. Almost nine million individual vaccinations, obviously, but all the encounters also including right within the health and hospitals. Um, where people are saying they're not yet ready. If officials shouldn't fully blame vaccine hesitancy, what's causing the disparities? Is it a lack of access? Yeah, it could be that, um it could be. People need more time off to get the shots. It could be. Case rates are so low right now that maybe they just don't feel the need to in terms of access. We've been asking the city and state to provide data. On how many doses it's delivered to individual providers by ZIP code, but so far we've been denied.

New York gives more groups eligibility to COVID-19 vaccine

"New York state has been expanding the types of people eligible for covert vaccines. Now, those who work in just about any health care setting can get there first shots as long as they see patients in person. W When my sees Fred mogul went toe one vaccination hub that just began inoculating staff members from doctor's offices throughout the metro area, Elizabeth Villarosa was a little surprised to find herself. Waiting on the line to be vaccinated are what's refusing 100% to take a look see? Delarosa, who's a receptionist at a pediatrician's office in Washington Heights, says the doctor she works for changed her mind by explaining they're not actually injecting virus into her arm. Something made in the lab to produce the proteins If you get over Iris, and they're gonna help. So Delarosa figures getting Cove It would be way worse than any side effects she might get from the vaccine. I feel confident that everything is going to be okay. She and around 300 people are vaccine yesterday and Dr Urgent Medical Center and Inwood. They're all part of this Almost network, which serves low income minority neighborhoods around the region. Governor Cuomo is expanding vaccine eligibility to medical practices like these, in part because the larger institutions have been working through their allotted vaccine doses so slowly I could see between 30 to 40 patients birthday It gets very crazy very fast. That's Dr Yamada's Pina was a small practice in Washington Heights. She spent much of the last 10 months on the front lines not only with her own patients but helping out coronavirus testing centers in New York, Texas and Florida. Painting was very excited to get the vaccine. But also very nervous. You're talking to one of the world's allergic people in the world opinion is allergic to pork, avocado, barley and latex. And people with allergies are slightly more likely to suffer side effects from the vaccine. When she initially went into the exam room for her injection, her blood pressure went through the roof, so she drank lots of fluids. And after a half hour of relaxing She felt well enough to get the shock wave did. It'll be several weeks at the soonest before pain, you will be able to administer the vaccine in her office to patients, but she wants to start spreading the gospel. Now the Latino patients believe in their doctors, right, So I want them to see that I got it first, so they could trust it, but it would be easier said than done. Of hospitals experience inoculating their workforce is any guide. But paying is hopeful that by the time the vaccine is available to the general public, there will be enough role models like her.

Schools Debate Closing as COVID-19 Cases Surge

"All right. So is the U. S heads into what looks like the worst stage of the Corona virus pandemic. So far, the question of whether to keep schools open has become one flash point. It has divided parents, teachers and experts. In the past week, Detroit announced it would close schools until at least January. New York City's mayor has said schools there could close as soon as Monday on your common it's from NPR's education team is following this and joins us now. Hi, Onya. Hi, Ari. It first give us a picture of what's happening with schools nationally across the country. I think one thing you can say is that there's not a lot of correlation between what the virus is doing and whether or not schools are open. So you have some hot spots that are staying open as much as possible and other places, especially in cities where the cases might be lower, But all the schools are closed. You're in New York City where there's been a lot of debate. Tell us more about what's going on. They're so here. The nation's largest school system, if you're than a third of the city's students are actually attending school in person right now. But they're pretty passionate about it. And Mayor Bill de Blasio had promised that when the city hits a 3% positivity rate on the tests, the covert tests that he would close all the schools and he signaled today that that threshold is pretty much coming up potentially as soon as Monday. On guy talk to Danielle Example. She's a working mother of two in Washington Heights, who created a petition to keep schools open. That's got about 6000 signatures. So far, it's frankly ridiculous, said You could go to a restaurant and have someone serve you a pizza indoors. My child is being deprived of an education. Daniel. What is the signs actually say about how much spread of the virus is happening in classrooms? Well, there's evolving data, therefore evolving scientific opinion. But what you hear pretty consistently is that if you have masking if you have some distancing handwashing keeping groups of Children apart, At school itself can be a pretty safe environment, especially with Children younger than 10, who may be less likely to transmit the virus. There's some caveats to this. Of course, not every school district in the United States necessarily has the funds to do proper social distancing or disinfecting and where researchers have told us they have seen outbreaks is with things like high school athletics and informal gatherings of kids outside of school. So the message is very much there. Keep masking. Keep distancing. If you want to keep schools open sounds like a lot of conflicting priorities for leaders to juggle. Yes, definitely. And I think that's you know, it's particle makers virus so painful you have people pointing out there are cities with closed schools and open restaurants and the virus poses the greatest danger to older people as we know, including many teachers in that category. Meanwhile, the Children are being asked to stay home where they have very unequal access to remote learning by income and by race, and they're missing out on big chunks of their education. I want to bring in a pediatrician's perspective from Seattle Children's Hospital Here is Dimitri kissed Aucas. Everybody says Well, we can't send ships to school if it's going to cost lives, But in fact not sending kids to school also cost lives on you explain how not sending kids to school also costs lives. What argument is he making there? So in this new paper, he's arguing that of these millions of kids who have essentially missed big chunks of their school lives. Some will not graduate high school and we know Ari that less educational attainment means to means shorter lives down the road for a whole host of reasons you're more likely to drink smoke have heart disease. Working, more dangerous occupations. So in terms of these kids, futures of our kids features in this country, they're just really tough things to consider on both sides

That's a lot to get into. Let's begin with. How has your quarantine shutdown period band during the coronavirus pandemic? What have you been up to? Well. It's a good thing that I like myself. Because I spent a lot of time alone I'll like everybody else and I'm in new. Jersey so very close to the epicenter of New York. Things were just out of control a few months ago or a few weeks ago. so one of the things that I decided that I would do once. I heard that it could be helpful was too so fabric masks so I just went to. My sewing area, dug out all the savage that I had because I. Work in real estate as well usually for my client I will so the Mahan. ME, apron and I just had. Had all that fabric and turned it into masks donated it to the hospitals they they accepted it. They sent us. I did it with another tennis player Pope Amuse and so we would get them picked up, and then they would send us pictures of them in the hospital with the signs with masks with signs that would say, stay home or stay say or be well, so it was a little bit. It was a lot rewarding. So. What else have you been focusing on during this pandemic? Tell us a little bit more. One of the things that I did I spent the last few years working was some tennis athletes that were on NJ -til, excellence a team and they were now heading off to college, and I wasn't quite sure that they knew all the things they would be facing as a student athlete so I, did a virtual training with them, and they were from all across the country. It was about a dozen of them may have different challenges and things to to figure out or interview. current athletes. What's it like so? It was really eye opening for them rewarding for me because my friends. They call me the professor because there's two things that I did. I either get up in the morning and I profess I'm GonNa do this I'm GonNa. Do this do that do that and usually I'm spinning like a top and do any of it so so they can hear me and my cadence, oh. You're professing now. They just say we don't even listen to you. We know we know you're not GonNa do, but maybe one thing on the list, but the other thing that I do. The professors is I. Love to teach in. You experience some of that I. Just I just love so it was rewarding to work with the athletes and some of my individual clients virtually to do win for life trading. So, how do you guys Know Each Other? You mentioned? You know arena from from working together. What have you guys been up to together I guess in the past couple of years. Will I will the first time. Obviously followed her career in since she was from New York and live not far from where I lived in New York. We were both in Washington Heights arena. Would you say you were Washington Heights to? I typically say Washington Heights but I'm more in. Would in lactose seven I street? Yeah, that's why I ask because I know there's a difference. But anyway we were, we were New Yorkers kindred. Areas and so I was coming down to do someone's life training with the boys and the women were young men, and the women just help them be ready for what they might face on the tour in terms of media training. How do you do interview techniques? How do you pivot and not answer difficult question? How do you get your point across and we bonded right away. Away, because we both loved HGTV and we still do so so that was I don't know two thousand fifteen in Ben, I, guess the last time I saw her was in November during winds life training at the Sloan Stevens Invitational Camp and Rada was there is one of the guests, coaches and speaker, so we just and we just kept up. Overtime was the magic of text. The company's the Wgn Usda than hire you and win for life. Colin teach people and train them. They need to. I have done some. You know I'm always involved with Billie Jean and the power hour and I haven't done as much with the US, but perhaps I, will you never know? So you know it's, it's my passion, so I'm not gonNa Chase people to to take the opportunity to to get better and to have To improve your. Your ability and I think when we feel more confident about ourselves, especially as as young women. you just do better. You play around the court. You're not worried about some things because you know all I'm GonNa. As that interview I'm not worried. I know how to speak at this party I'm not worry, and that's just one less thing. You can check on your list so. Game! Oh I believe it helps you.

Trump making good on threat to send immigrants to "sanctuary cities"?

Morning Edition

Trump making good on threat to send immigrants to "sanctuary cities"?

"President Trump is calling for a fundamental overhaul of how the United States handles immigration. The president unveiled the proposal to ceremony in the white House, Rose Garden yesterday, his plan favors immigrants who are younger and more educated. We discriminate against genius. We discriminate against brilliance. We won't anymore. Once we get this passed now, immigration, of course, has been a major focus for the Trump administration, but many of its efforts to reshape and restrict, who is admitted to the US have been blocked, either by the courts or by congress and this proposal. Maybe next NPR's Joel rose covers immigration and joins us in our studios in Washington heights, y'all. Hey David, I to the president has a plan that would prioritize so called merit based immigration. I just wonder like what is the criteria that they would use in terms of who to admit, right? Well like you said, at the top, it would favor immigrants who are younger, who have more education, more skills, more income who speak English, and who can pass a civics exam. All of that would be a really big change in how we do legal immigration in this country, a shift away from family, reunification, reunification based on family ties, which has been the basis of our immigration system for decades now and also this would mean shifting away from certain humanitarian. 'immigration like the refugee resettlement program. It sounds like the reaction so far from congress has been very negative and not just from Democrats. Yeah, that's right. Immigration hardliners don't really like this plan, either, because it wouldn't actually reduce legal immigration, that would just change the profile of the people who can come in, but it would keep the overall number of new green cards at about the same level as now about a million per year. And Democrats, don't like it, because it doesn't really address their big concerns on immigration, including what to do about the roughly eleven million undocumented immigrants who are already here in the country and Democrats control the house. So you really can't pass legislation without them. But I will note, this is sort of an interesting shift in tone here, from the president usually when he talks about immigrants in terms of a quote invasion, at the southern border or a threat to national security. There was relatively little of that, in his speech yesterday, you know, whether that's a lasting shift and how the president is going to talk about immigration going into next year's election that, I guess, is, you know, up in the air, but could it be because his approach so far hasn't really worked? I mean, what, what is his track record, so far in getting some of the changes he's talked about, that's mixed some of the administration's most ambitious efforts to restrict immigration have been stymied by the courts, the administration has tried to punish so called sanctuary cities, for example, that limit their cooperation with immigration authorities courts of widely rejected those efforts today, according, California will consider whether the president can use a national emergency declaration to redirect money to build his signature wall on the southern border. And there are other administration efforts that are still in the pipeline. The administration has talked about. Punishing immigrants, whose food stamps or who get subsidized healthcare, or live in public housing. And finally, the administration has run into a fair amount of trouble trying to limit who can get asylum in this country. Remember the family separation policy of a euro, that was supposed to deter migrants from seeking asylum in the US? But the president had to walk it back under intense, pressure, and migrants are still arriving big numbers at the southern border, but it's fair to say he's gotten some of his his the crackdown tougher approach that he's wanted for sure, you know, the supreme court upheld his travel ban on immigrants and visitors from seven countries, including several majority Muslim countries deportations and arrests are way up since Trump took office, the administration has cut refugee admissions to their lowest level in decades. Those are, you know, maybe the high profile changes that have gone through, but the administration's also made a lot of smaller changes to rules and regulations and immigration experts say, those things may really make a big difference.

"I just wanna give a shout out to ten Popo, which is off one eighty first street in Washington heights. It's it's run by a couple who are Jewish and Asian, and they they do like a really great. They used chicken broth, but they also which is the Jewish part of. They also have really great vegetarian from. Thank you sounds great. And that's also, of course, named after a movie that popular movie. Yeah. Fantastic movie. That's what our second caller was about John. And every west side was gonna fill us in John. Exactly what I was calling about. They call Japanese spaghetti western Tom poeple about truckers starting center pants stopping Rahman. Spot can inspired me to try rom. Excellent. Thank you so much for calling in where do you stand on? When people start getting creative with Rahman number two on your list is Ruto and they use truffle well and whatnot. Well to begin with truffle oil is maybe not the best example because I hate truffle oil. Buffalo has nothing to do with truffles. It's a synthetic chemical in any time. They put it on your fries. It makes you want to run for the bathroom and throw up, but other things people they're interesting. There's this dichotomy between let's get simple with Robin. And let's fuss it up a little bit. So one of the things that I like to use as an example is these places that are using butter and parmesan and other dairy products in the Rahman, and it may sound horrible. But it actually kind of works like Rahman Musalia in the east village does Rahman Romans said a guy and not the east village one. But the one in the. New industry city has a has a Rahman that has parmesan cheese grated on top, and plus butter, and you know, with me so broth, it's not such a bad idea. I mean, I'm hoping people will call and curse this opinion. But like at the Rahman Toda we talked about. They have a KADO is one of the options in avacado is one of those things that it was made to be put in Rahman because it kind of cools it down and smoothes it off and unsalted a little bit. So I'm not opposed to things like that. But I'd rather eat simple Rahman. What I like even better are the are the fetish. She places that do bizarre things with Rodman lake each year on which is a chain that actually comes from the city where Rahman was invented. And there you could eat your Rahman in a little individual booth like a university library, Carol. So you can be private about a true likes to have someone watching their Reimann. It's really sick. That's really odd. Embodied getting into the fetishes Rahman did not expect this conversation to go this way. Oh, sorry. Sorry. When you get the bowl, these two disembodied hands pass it through a curtain. So. And I think it's about the embarrassment that everyone feels about eating by themselves. No matter how confident they seem. You can read a book you can sit at the bar. There's all sorts of remedies, but I to feel the same feeling so it's something a relief to be able to eat in secret. And it reminds me of the movie phantom of liberty. And I would explain that. But go watch the movie and you'll understand what I'm saying. Let's go to Evan from the east village is online for high heaven. Well, first off I want to say too much of my chagrin. Are my favorite places? Well, I'd rather you didn't send more people there. President. But anyhow my favorite at my wife's favorite. We you of will use on Tompkins swears jerk chicken, rum it. No, we really. Yeah. You know, I'm with you kind of on the stuff with the parmesan and butter that it I I kind of scoffed at that as well. But it is delicious. So I would highly recommend that y'all check that one out miss lillies are Thompkin swear the other location habit. Evan thank you so much. Robert, what's your last recommendation? We're going to have to wrap it up. I would say go to join men Rahman if you want something a little fancier, which is in Chelsea it's on ninth avenue. It's a small place. It's kind of over designed, but they put sea urchin in a dry Rahman. That is surprisingly good. So a lot of restaurants in that latitude serve sea urchin. But I know this is a strange recommendation, but why not? Yeah, why not the name of the pieces. Twenty-five banging bowls of Rahman in NYC will definitely linked to it on our Twitter page, Robert restaurant critic and sleuth at eater. Thanks for stopping by. And thank you. I had such a good time. When we come back our friends from Gotham, Mr. dropping by..
