The NYC Department of Health has released a data set showing the raw number of positive COVID-19 tests for each zip code, along with the total number of tests, on their Github page. We’ve mapped the zip codes by total positive cases, but you should note that total positive cases is correlated with the number of tests run, so this data may not be a reliable indicator of which neighborhoods have the highest infection numbers, given that all neighborhoods have not received the same amount of testing.

Furthermore, zip codes have unequal populations, so we will need to normalize these numbers to get a per-capita rate that better reflects the situation on the ground.
