Small coastal towns that have taken in an influx of NYC's elite fleeing the coronavirus epidemic are now reeling from a spike in COVID-19 cases as the prices of Hamptons rental homes soar from $5,000 per month to over $30,000 for just two weeks. 

The exodus of the Big Apple's residents has caused some town populations to burgeon and practically double and rentals to skyrocket - but locals in these 'refugee' towns are becoming hostile and demanding city dwellers stay away from their vulnerable towns for fear they may bring the deadly infection.  

Suffolk County, home to the Hamptons, is seeing the biggest outbreak with 7,605 cases reported as of Wednesday, a 892 jump from the day prior with 897 people hospitalized and 69 deaths.
