According to the New Zealand Herald reported on the 15th, during the pandemic, not only the number of people infected with the Coronavirus continued to increase, but the crime rate in New York City also continued to rise.
Under the double blow, a large number of residents asked to leave. In the past 8 months, the U.S. Postal Service has received nearly 300,000 requests for address changes.
Considering that requests can be made on a family basis, the number of people leaving New York may actually be higher. In addition to the pandemic, rising crime rates are also considered to be one of the main reasons for people fleeing New York on a large scale.
The report pointed out that the overall homicide rate in the United States is increasing sharply, and it seems to be more serious in New York City.
On November 9th and 10th alone, shootings occurred one after another in New York, resulting in 7 deaths. The local police said that as of the 13th, there have been more than 1,300 shootings in New York City this year, resulting in more than 1,600 deaths.
