NYC health commissioner tests positive for coronavirus plague

NEW YORK – New York City’s health commissioner, the face of the city’s campaign to halt the spread of the coronavirus, announced Wednesday that he has been infected with the virus himself.

Dr. Dave Chokshi said in a statement that he was recently tested for COVID-19 and received a positive diagnosis. “I now have mild symptoms, but they are manageable,” Chokshi said, adding that he has been in touch with city contact tracers.

It was not clear if Dr. Chokshi had been vaccinated for the virus.

When asked during his daily coronavirus briefing if the commissioner had been vaccinated, Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday said he would let Chokshi speak for himself.
