Two separate research projects suggest that the novel coronavirus may have been circulating in New York City earlier than thought and the earliest cases likely originated with travelers coming from Europe and other parts of the United States, not Asia.

The new data come from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the NYU Grossman School of Medicine.

With more than 80,000 cases and 4,260 coronavirus deaths, according to the city's website, New York is one of the major epicenters for the coronavirus outbreak in the United States.

On March 1, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio reported the city's first novel coronavirus case had been confirmed. "The patient contracted the virus during recent travel and is isolated in her home under close monitoring," de Blasio wrote in a Twitter post that night.

Soon after, the city that never sleeps cautioned against public gatherings, and New Rochelle, New York, closed schools as the virus spread quickly there.

Now new data from NYU Langone Health suggests that the novel coronavirus has been spreading in New York for a couple of months now -- long before testing started -- and a genetic analysis of viral samples in the city indicate that they originated in Europe, according to an announcement from the academic medical center on Thursday.
