NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday that 20 “hot spot ZIP codes” in New York have a COVID infection rate of 5.5%—more than five times the state's infection rate—as he warned local governments weren't doing enough enforcement.

The hotspot ZIP codes are in Rockland and Orange counties, as well as Brooklyn, Queens and parts of Nassau, Cuomo said.
