NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Fifty-two NYPD members have tested positive for coronavirus, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said Friday.

One officer is in the hospital.

That number is up from 20 reported cases on Thursday.

The 1st Precinct in downtown Manhattan has been one of the hardest hit with at least 31 officers calling out sick, Shea said earlier.

Last week, NYPD Transit Bureau Chief Edward Delatorre tested positive for coronavirus. 

He has been resting at his Bronx home since.
