The NYPD now has 70 confirmed cases of officers with coronavirus — and double the average number of officers calling out sick, officials said Sunday.
In one Brooklyn precinct, the entire detective squad called out Sunday, one police source told The Post.
Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said 70 uniformed members of the NYPD and 28 civilians employees have tested positive for COVID-19. One person was released from the hospital Sunday while three remained hospitalized, according to Shea.
“The belief is, with very limited information, that it wasn’t contracted at work but from family members,” the commissioner said at a press conference.
