The latest Covid-19 numbers for Boston neighborhoods are out and they're not good.
Citywide, the percentage of people testing positive for Covid-19 increased from 6% to 7.8% for the week ending Oct. 24, according to the Boston Public Health Commission.
Every neighborhood saw increases, but some more dramatically than others. Two weeks ago, only Roxbury had a positivity rate above 10%. Now, it's joined by Dorchester, East Boston, Hyde Park, Mattapan and Roslindale. 02122 and 02124 in Dorchester have the highest positivity rates in the city, at 11.9%.
Even West Roxbury has seen an increase, although to just 3.5%, up from 2.6%.
