NYC As Contagion Vector

New York City’s coronavirus outbreak grew so large by early March that the city became the primary source of new infections in the United States, new research reveals, as thousands of infected people traveled from the city and seeded outbreaks around the country.

The research indicates that a wave of infections swept from New York City through much of the country before the city began setting social distancing limits to stop the growth. That helped to fuel outbreaks in Louisiana, Texas, Arizona and as far away as the West Coast.

No surprise.  High density, lots of travelers, a perfect incubator.   It appears Idaho cases (which first appeared in Blaine Co., where the billionaires ski) are entirely from NYC strains, not Washington State strains.
