New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is holding his daily press briefing Wednesday amid continuing protests in the city and nationwide over George Floyd's death last week in Minneapolis. He is speaking after the NYPD said approximately 200 people were arrested during the second night of the city's curfew, far fewer than the roughly 700 arrested the night before,  CBS New York reports.

The curfew will be in effect from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. every night for the rest of the week. Patrols are doubled and officers are working 12-hour shifts.

The curfew was announced in an effort to curb looting and violence that has broken out at nightfall. 

Authorities on Tuesday announced that extensive restrictions on vehicular traffic would be in effect in Manhattan overnight. When 8 p.m. struck, some subway entrances were also locked, so protesters who were trying to follow curfew struggled to get home, CBS New York reported.
