Long Lines Seen at Brooklyn Costco During Coronavirus Outbreak

Shoppers queued in long lines outside a Costco store in Brooklyn on the morning of April 10, as death tolls in New York City approached 5,000 from the new coronavirus, COVID-19, outbreak.

This video was taken by a Storyful staff member on Friday morning, who said the line wound around the building shortly after the wholesaler opened.

Costco has seen an increase in sales as residents across the US seek to stock up on goods for periods of quarantine.

As of 5 pm on April 9, at least 87,725 patients had tested positive for COVID-19 and 4,778 deaths in New York City had been tied to complications from the virus. Credit: Jeremy Blum via Storyful
