Two more people have been confirmed to have the coronavirus in New York City, Mayor de Blasio said Thursday – bringing the total number in the Big Apple to four.
The patients are a man in his 40s and a woman in her 80s, a source told The Post.
Meanwhile, tests on 25 other people have come back negative, the Mayor said on “Morning Joe.”
The other two confirmed cases are Lawrence Garbuz, 50, a midtown lawyer hospitalized in stable condition at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center, and a 39-year-old health-care worker who returned from a trip to Iran and is recovering in her Manhattan apartment.
With the latest cases, the total number of people infected with COVID-19 in the state now stands at 13.
On Wednesday, officials revealed that nine people linked to Garbuz, who lives in New Rochelle in Westchester County, tested positive — and some 1,000 people were asked to self-isolate.
They include his wife, two of his children and several neighbors.
